MFRC630 – powerful reader for MIFARE products

As a reader for MIFARE® products we recommend the MFRC630, a high performance single protocol reader (ISO/IEC 14443 A) suited to support the growing range of MIFARE products in read/write mode. It supports the MIFARE Classic®, MIFARE Ultralight®, MIFARE Plus® and MIFARE® DESFire® product families, as well as NTAG® based tags.

The reader IC manages the complete ISO/IEC 14443A framing and error detection functionality, has a high output power of 1.3W and a low-power card detection mode allowing also battery-powered systems to read tags, cards and tickets efficiently.

The MFRC630 supports the MIFARE products high transfer speeds of up to 848 kbit/s in both directions and supports several host interfaces, including SPI, serial UART, and an I²C-bus. For an added layer of security, as often required for access management use cases, the MFRC630 supports the connection of a secure access module (SAM) for highly secure key storage acting as a very performant crypto coprocessor.
