MIFARE Secure Access Module SAM AV2

Security is an important part of design. In the process of developing a project and should be one of the key considerations of the designer. The NXP MIFARE SAM AV2 hardware solution is the ideal add-on for reader devices offering additional security services. It offers secure storage and secure communication in a variety of infrastructures.

The P5DF081 offers secured communication. It supports a number of cryptography variations such as MIFARE Crypto1, TDEA (Triple DES encryption algorithm), RSA and AES. Unlike other products in the field, MIFARE SAM AV2 has proven interoperability with all of NXP’s broad card portfolio, (MIFARE Ultralight, MIFARE Ultralight C, MIFARE 1K, MIFARE 4K, MIFARE Plus, MIFARE DESFire, MIFARE DESFire EV1 and SmartMX solutions), making it the most versatile and secure SAM solution on the market today.
