MIFARE Cards – The Future of Plastic Card Printing and Manufacturing



MIFARE Cards are widely used for several applications, including pay-as-you-go systems and offline locking systems. These cards are secure and convenient to use. They have a typical read/write distance of 10 cm and are highly cost-effective when future-proofing a system. Here are a few reasons why. These cards can be found in many different locations. MIFARE is the way to go if you are looking for a reliable and secure smart card for your business.

Benefits of using MIFARE cards

The flexibility and small size of Mifare cards make them ideal for many different applications. They can be housed in plastic cards, RFID wristbands, and even smartphones. In addition to their convenience, they come with a one-year warranty. These cards enhance customer interaction and contribute to sustainable prosperity. In addition, they save time and money. These cards use the biometric operation to verify the owner’s identity and reduce fraud. They also provide a sense of security to the user.

Unlike other intelligent cards, MIFARE cards contain memory for system developers. The serial number of a MIFARE card is stored on the card, and it can be read either in clear (MIFARE Ultralight) or encrypted after authentication with a CRYPTO1 or PIN. Micro-controller cards are often encoded in both formats, so there is a solution for almost any situation. If you are looking for a secure card, you should first read the specs on the reader before ordering.

MIFARE 1k  cards are secure because they use advanced encryption. The encryption helps to ensure that no one can copy the data on the card, reducing the risk of fraud and loss. In addition, the cards are designed to store sensitive information, like credit card numbers, and are customized to the user’s specifications. Because of this, MIFARE Cards cannot be copied or shared. The cryptographic keys on the cards also prevent the data from being intercepted.

The MIFARE Classic card contains a memory that is divided into blocks. These sectors are called segments. The MIFARE 4k Classic card has a 4-byte numeric ID. The MIFARE Ultralight card has a 64-byte ID but lacks the security of the MIFARE Classic. However, its limited computing power makes it ideal for use as an access card or disposable transportation ticket. Further, the MIFARE Classic card is often used for stadium ticketing and access control.


MIFARE DESFire EV1 cards are very secure and versatile. They can be used for key fobs, RFID tags, and access control. Many RFID readers can write to MIFARE cards, including card printers with an RFID encoding module and USB readers. They can even be used in combination with smartphones and key fobs. MIFARE Plus EV1 is backward compatible with MIFARE Ultralight. MIFARE ultralight includes SL3 security. It also has a Transaction Timer to help protect against man-in-the-middle attacks. A MIFARE card also saves time and money. Its low price makes it an excellent value for your money.
