MIFARE DESFire EV2

NXP has been working closely together with leading system integrators and solution providers to define and implement the next generation break through features which significantly enhance the customer experience whilst enabling new business models based on the next level of transaction security and private data protection.

The second evolution of our industry-leading MIFARE DESFire open architecture platform for smart cards offers superior performance, state-of-the-art security, privacy and enhanced multi-application support to enable new business models. The new MIFARE DESFire EV2 platform further increases flexibility and is also available on NXP’s SmartMX secure smart card platform used e.g. for contactless bank cards and secure elements for the use with NFC enabled mobile devices providing unrivalled end user experience in mobile ticketing.

Compared to MIFARE DESFire EV1 a MIFARE DESFire EV2 chip can hold as many different applications as the memory size supports and new applications can be loaded after the card has been deployed into the market. A purse can even be shared between applications, for greater interoperability.

For a truly convenient touch-and-go experience, MIFARE DESFire EV2 offers increased operating distance compared to previous versions. The 70 pF option enables read range optimizations of small antenna form factors. MIFARE DESFire EV2 delivers the perfect balance of speed, performance and cost efficiency. Its open concept allows for future seamless integration of other media such as smart paper tickets, key fobs and mobile ticketing based on Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

It is also fully compatible with the existing MIFARE reader hardware platform. With MIFARE DESFire EV2, data transfer rates up to 848 Kbit/s can be achieved, making fast data processing possible.

Innovation via MIsmartApp

NXP is offering eco-system partners the opportunity to think ahead and consider how their system solutions can be further elevated using a set of innovative features available on the MIFARE DESFire EV2 development platform. The new multi-application MIsmartApp feature supports multi-operator and multi-service environments to enable new smart business models. Operators can now sell memory space for additional applications to third parties without the need to share the card’s master key. It allows for a combination of unlimited applications such as loyalty, membership, access management, bike rental or a transport pass on one single card. It is like your personal app store in a contactless smart card.
