4000 series - Unlimited Ideas to Turn Into Reality

With LEGIC 4000 series reader chips, you get the highest degree of flexibility at a competitive price: you can integrate a variety of applications and functions with different identification media. The 4000 series is not only the perfect complement to the advant transponder technology, but also supports third-party transponders such as Mifare

The single chip solution for all applications

The 4000 series stands out with its compact design and its low energy use.

Interoperability with Mifare transponders

The 4000 series supports all common RF standards, Bluetooth Smart (BLE), Near Field Communication (NFC) and the cryptographic functions for the entire Mifare family.

4000 series with BLE and NFCWe integrated Bluetooth Smart in our latest reader development. LEGIC’s Bluetooth Smart security chipsetSC-4300M is a new member of our proven LEGIC 4000 series reader chips. This innovative, state-of-the-art reader chipset facilitates your entry into the world of mobile identification. Together with our LEGIC Connect trusted service and the software development kits for smartphone apps, the SC-4300 is part of our powerful platform for smart ID solutions.Furthermore, the 4000 series also supports NFC. Compared to other wireless technologies, NFC has a very short communication distance requiring a conscious user action - thus making the NFC interface a personal one.

Investment protection The operating system is fully upgradeable, regularly brought into line with the latest technology and extended with new features.

advant Transponder Chips - For All Applications

Advant as chip are classic memory transponder chips for smartcards (badge), key fobs, keys and other identification media.

Thanks to the flexible multi-application function, up to 127 applications can be combined. Advant transponder chips are available with different memory sizes and for various ISO standards (ISO 14443, ISO 15693). Thanks to the multi-RF transponder CTC, flexible migration from prime to advant is possible.

  • ATC256-MV410A: Its big range and excellent encryption make it the best ISO 15693 chip ever. The ATC256-MV410 achieves security levels in the ISO 15693 world as it was only possible in ISO 14443A until now.
  • ATC1024-MV010: The new 1kByte transponder chip on ISO 15693 achieves with its 3DES authentication a comparable security level as ISO 14443.
  • ATC1024-MV110: The ISO 15693 transponder chip with 1kByte memory and long reading distance (but slow data rate) for simple ID solutions with a moderate number of applications.
  • ATC4096-MP311: The ISO 14443 transponder chip is certified according to Common Criteria EAL5+ and contains a 4kByte memory.
  • CTC4096-MP410: The multi-RF transponder with 4kByte memory communicates via ISO 14443 and LEGIC RF standard and is the first choice for flexible migration to LEGIC advant.
  • CTC4096-MM410: The first transponder chip on 13,56 MHz with 3 RF standards for all kind of multi-applications.
