LEGIC smartcard ICs

Choose your own medium

LEGIC advant is a cutting-edge transponder technology consisting of two varieties.

One variety are smartcard ICs for identification media such as smartcards, key rings, watches, etc.
The other one are transponder applets as "virtualized" chips, which can be stored on media such as credit cards or PKI smartcards.
Advant stands for scalable security and is the optimal base for a combination of applications.


Its big range and excellent encryption make it the best ISO 15693 IC ever. The ATC256-MV410 achieves security levels in the ISO 15693 world as it was only possible in ISO 14443 A until now.

LEGIC advant smartcard ICs

For all applications

Advant as chip are classic memory smartcard ICs for smartcards (badges), key fobs, keys and other identification media.

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

LEGIC advant on credit card solutions

Key and ID
on your credit card

Store employee IDs, electronic keys, travel cards and membership cards on a credit card.
LEGIC advant on credit card solutions are software (AFS4096-JP) virtualized smartcard ICs, which operate on storage media such as credit cards and NFC Smartphones. advant on credit card solutions are compatible with all LEGIC OS releases since 2007.


Combination with third-party applications

With advant on credit card solutions, classic LEGIC applications such as access control, time & attendance and cashless payment 
can be combined with third-party applications, for example PC Logon (PKI), credit card payments and electronic travel cards.



Security of LEGIC card-in-card solutions is certified according to Common Criteria
(ISO 15408) EAL4+ by the German Federal Office for information security (BSI).

Cost control and efficiency

Advant on credit card solutions are only subject to a charge when used.
This can occur on existing credit cards, as long as they have been prepared accordingly.
In this way, costs are only incurred for identification media which are actively used.
You thus keep all costs under control.


Flexible migration
and scalable security

The multi-RF smartcard IC CTC4096-MM410 is your convenient solution for flexible migration
to LEGIC advant or the implementation of individual security standards for different areas.

The Cross-Standard-Transponder-Chip (CTC) is in line with the progressive security level of advant (ISO 14443 A), is compatible with the LEGIC RF standard and has a higher reading distance as it also supports ISO 15693.
The CTC4096-MM410 has two memory areas: one for advant segments and one for prime segments.
