The NXP Originality Checker Reader will no longer be available and the online support will phase out by March 31, 2022. We recommend using the NFC TagInfo App by NXP for verifying the authenticity of an NXP IC.

Non-authentic MIFARE® products, including counterfeit ICs and cloned smart cards, pose a significant risk to everyone involved, from manufacturers and suppliers to end customers and consumers.

Using the latest MIFARE products helps to reduce this risk as they ensure proper ISO compliance including secure and trusted production and quality review processes. They add additional security features like the support of NXP’s Originality Check. Jointly with our Premium Partner AdvanIDe, NXP offers the NXP Originality Checker Reader, a tool that can help to verify the authenticity of an NXP IC, by simply tapping it to a special reader that is connected to your desktop PC.

After running an extensive set of checks, both in the reader itself as well as with an online service provided by NXP, you can receive the information whether an IC has been produced by NXP or not.

Products supported:

  • MIFARE Classic®
  • MIFARE® DESFire®
  • MIFARE Plus®
  • MIFARE Ultralight®
  • NTAG®
