MIFARE DESFire EV1 is based on open global standards for
both air interfaces and cryptographic methods. It is compliant
to all four levels of ISO / IEC 14443 A and uses optional
ISO / IEC 7816-4 commands.
Featuring an on-chip backup management system and the
mutual three pass authentication, a MIFARE DESFire EV1
card can hold up to 28 different applications and 32 files per
application. The size and access conditions of each file are
defined at the moment of its creation, making
MIFARE DESFire EV1 a truly flexible and convenient product.
Additionally, an automatic anti-tear mechanism is available
for all file types, which guarantees transaction oriented data
integrity. With MIFARE DESFire EV1, data transfer rates up
to 848 Kbit/s can be achieved, making fast data processing
possible. The chips main characteristics are denoted by its
name DESFire EV1, the first evolution of MIFARE DESFire:
DES indicates the commitment for high levels of security
- MIFARE DESFire EV1 uses a DES, 2K3DES, 3K3DES and AES
hardware cryptographic engine for securing transmission data.
Fire refl ects its outstanding position as a Fast, Innovative,
Reliable and Enhanced IC in the contactless proximity
transaction market.

MIFARE is NXP´s well-known brand for a wide range of
contactless IC products used in more than 40 different
applications worldwide. With more than 150 million reader
core components and 5 billion smart card ICs sold, MIFARE
products are proven and reliable more than any other interface
technology in the market.
MIFARE products comply with the international standard
ISO/IEC 14443 and are backwards compatible within the
product families. This ensures that the existing infrastructure
can be smoothly upgraded to higher security and feature
levels such as payment systems, ticketing solutions,
loyalty programs, access management and parking.
To further extend the reach of MIFARE products, the
MIFARE4Mobile Industry Group brings MIFARE applications
into NFC enabled mobile devices.
MIFARE DESFire EV1 brings many benefits to end users.
Cardholders can experience convenient contactless ticketing
while also having the possibility to use the same device for
applications such as closed-loop payment at vending machines,
access management, loyalty or social services. In other words,
the MIFARE DESFire EV1 silicon solution offers enhanced,
consumer- friendly system design, in combination with
security and reliability. The 70 pF option enables read range
optimizations of small antenna form factors.
MIFARE DESFire EV1 delivers the perfect balance of speed,
performance, and cost efficiency. Its open concept allows
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.
