The reader infrastructure is at the heart of many identification applications. The device delivers the convenience and efficiency of contactless technology to customers and end consumers alike by ensuring security, performance, low power consumption and ultra-fast transactions times on a 24/7 basis.

Supporting all 13.56-MHz contactless standards, NXP’s new reader IC is compatible with all established smart card, smart tag and smart label technologies, including NFC Forum Tag Types and MIFARE products. The reader ensures best-in-class interoperability with the billions of smart cards, electronic documents and NFC-enabled phones based on NXP technology.

The intelligent groundbreaking new low-power card detection feature introduced by NXP improves power efficiency and realizes energy savings for customers, taking into account the growing need to reduce energy consumption. The device enables the reader terminal’s microcontroller to go into sleep mode while still polling for cards, thus ensuring energy-efficient operation.

The CLRC663 combines high RF performance with a small HVQFN33 package, ensuring large and reliable read ranges, as well as energy- and resource-efficient implementations. It is supplied by 5 V for POS and AFC implementations, or by 3 V for energy-efficient battery-powered operations. Offering a read/write device fully compliant with ISO/IEC 14443 A&B, ISO/IEC 15693, ISO/IEC18000-3 Mode3 and FeliCa and supporting NFC initiator mode in peer-to-peer communication, the CLRC663 sets a new standard for high-performance multi-protocol contactless reader ICs.
