MIFARE SDK

INTRODUCING THE MIFARE SDK

The MIFARE SDK is designed to provide access to all hardware features on Java level and enables Android apps to be created for MIFARE, ICODE and NTAG more easily than ever before. Leveraging the worldwide success of NXP´s product installations, the launch of MIFARE SDK opens up a world of new possibilities for creative Android application developers.
The enormous reduction in development time enables Android APP developers to focus on the real important things: designing cool apps for a range of applications like access management, closed loop micropayment, campus cards and loyalty programs. These apps can then be easily uploaded to the Google Play store, ready for the end-user.
