LEGIC SM-6300 Reader IC

RFID, BLE and Secure
Element in one chip

The SM-6300 is the first component of the 6000 series.

The 6000 series reader ICs are LEGIC’s highlight to secure the world of high-end devices. Thanks to the embedded certified secure element (SE), the new reader chip generation is also ideal for ID and IoT applications with the highest security. Another advantage of the 6000 series is the very compact “System-in-Package” design.

  • Reads all global relevant RFID standards
  • Compatible with all LEGIC technologies and smart devices
  • Compact 8 x 8 mm housing thanks to „System-in-Package“ design
  • Fulfills the highest security requirements due to the secure element
