Mainz, 12 October 2009 – ARYGON Technologies, a first mover in NFC / RFID reader modules, today announces its highly customizable and best-in-class High-Speed NFC Reader Platform for authenticating, reading and writing all Mifare and FeliCa family transponders including secure modes (proprietary encryption modes, DES, 3DES, AES etc.). It is a highly customizable Hardware and Firmware platform, optionally offering Contact Card and SAM slots, custom PCB sizes and host interfaces (USB, UART, RS232 etc.) as well as environment-specific antenna designs or application-compliant firmware solutions for various EEPROM sizes (64kB up to 512kB). Additionally it provides ease of integration with customer applications, by including with it. PC/SC drivers, API´s, sample script files and comprehensive test tools.

The ARYGON High-Speed NFC Reader supports globally used Mifare and FeliCa transponder families like: NXP Mifare Ultralight C, Mifare Classic, Mifare DESFire EV1, Mifare Plus, Infineon my-D, my-D Move, Sony FeliCa 4k and 9k transponders.

“The highly flexible ARYGON High-Speed NFC Reader Platform meets nearly all future requirements of market-specific cost, feature (speed, security, interoperability etc), standard and application needs, while additionally being future-proof with its field-upgradable firmware functionality” stated Frank Steigberger, Director of Sales at ARYGON Technologies.

“It uniquely offers OEM RFID providers the opportunity to grow with their evolving customer infrastructure and application needs: e.g. it already complies with all major existing payment infrastructures and card standards offering full interoperability, and in addition also offers sufficient reserves to implement future system enhancements in regard to higher security and NFC usage without exchanging reader infrastructure. This will save costs for servicing, upgrading and maintaining RFID reader infrastructures”, added Bodo Ischebeck, CEO at ARYGON Technologies.

The new ARYGON High-Speed NFC Reader family is highly flexible and based on a high-performance ARM processor, giving high-speed de-/encryption and the fastest data response times between system 2 and transponder in the market. This means the new ARYGON reader is ideally suited for Payment, Point of Sales / POS, Public Transport, Ticketing, Secure ID, PKI, Mobile and NFC applications.

Reference Samples of the new ARYGON High-Speed NFC Reader Platform can be ordered for evaluation from ARYGON, which will be then customized and fitted to customer specific application and form factor requirements.
