NXP, HID Global join forces to introduce mobile access app for NFC phones

Mobile Access management application is backward-compatible with HID Global iCLASS readers

By CBR Staff Writer

Secure identity applications firms NXP Semiconductors and HID Global have collaborated to introduce a generic Mobile Access application for NFC-enabled mobile phones.

NFC enables secure information sharing from one device to another over short distances based upon existing contactless standards.

The new application leverages the companies advanced reader technologies within a physical access control infrastructure.

It also supports existing HID Global readers and those based on the company’s iCLASS SIO-Enabled (iCLASS SE) platform.

HID’s iCLASS SE readers will be powered by NXP’s new CLRC663 reader ICs and support 13.56 MHz smart cards that are ISO14443 compliant, including MIFARE DESFIRE EV1.

The Mobile Access management application is backward-compatible with HID Global iCLASS readers, and is forward-compatible to HID Global’s Trusted Identity Platform (TIP) ecosystem.

NXP Semiconductors Secure Transactions vice president and general manager Henri Ardevol said as enterprises continue to invest in mobile technology and security infrastructure, the collaboration brings real value and convenience.
