NXP Semiconductors has developed MIFARE MF0ICU2 - MIFARE Ultralight to be used with Proximity Coupling Devices (PCD) according to ISO/IEC 14443A (see Ref. 1 "ISO/IEC"). The communication layer (MIFARE RF Interface) complies to parts 2 and 3 of the ISO/IEC 14443A standard. The MF0ICU2 is primarily designed for limited use applications such as public transportation, event ticketing and NFC Forum Tag Type 2 applications.
In the MIFARE system, the MF0ICU2 is connected to a coil with a few turns. The MF0ICU2 fits for the TFC.0 (Edmonson) and TFC.1 ticket formats as defined 753-2. TFC.1 ticket formats are supported by the MF0xxU20 chip featuring an on-chip resonance capacitor of 16.9 pF. The smaller TFC.0 tickets are supported by the MFxxU21 chip holding an on-chip resonance capacitor of 50 pF. When the ticket is positioned in the proximity of the coupling device (PCD) antenna, the high speed RF communication interface allows the transmission of the data with a baud rate of 106 kbit/s.
An intelligent anticollision function according to ISO/IEC 14443 allows to operate more than one card in the field simultaneously. The anticollision algorithm selects each card individually and ensures that the execution of a transaction with a selected card is performed correctly without data corruption resulting from other cards in the field.
The anticollision function is based an IC individual serial number called Unique IDentification. The UID of the is 7 bytes long and supports cascade level 2 according to ISO/IEC 14443-3.

Stresses above one or more of the limiting values may cause permanent damage to the device. These are stress ratings only. Operation of the device at these or any other conditions above those given in the Characteristics section of the specification is not implied. Exposure to limiting values for extended periods may affect device reliability. LCR meter HP 4285, Tamb = 22 °C, Cp-D, = 13.56 MHz, 2 Veff.
