Contactless IC Addresses Disposable Transport Tickets

NXP_1204-AEindhoven, The Netherlands: NXP’s MIFARE Ultralight EV1 addresses the demand for low-value or disposable tickets. As part of the company’s next generation of contactless paper ticketing ICs, this non-cryptographic solution is designed for smart paper ticketing, allowing transport operators to run a fully integrated contactless system with the same reader for cards and paper tickets.

The MIFARE Ultralight EV1 features three independent 24-bit one-way counters to enhance trip counting, reloading, limited stored values, and expiry date management. It comes with a 48-byte or 128-byte programmable user memory and fast-read command to retrieve multiple memory pages with a single command.

A 32-bit password protects data from being accessed without authorization. NXP’s “originality signature” enables vendor verification of each single IC, contributing to a more reliable system and enabling transport operators to identify and reject tickets that aren’t qualified to work in the specific application.

MIFARE Ultralight EV1 is backward-compatible with MIFARE Ultralight as well.
