First reader IC with RFID, BLE and Secure Element

At this year’s Security in Essen, LEGIC is launching the first reader series which combines RFID, BLE and a Secure Element into one chip. The new reader ICs of the 6000 series are perfect for smart and secure IoT solutions and can be integrated seamlessly into the LEGIC technology platform.

Increased security due to the Secure Element

In the future, the key material of the reader IC will be saved in secured, hardened hardware, the Secure Element. The Secure Element, which is certified in accordance with the Common Criteria EAL5+, offers perfect conditions for innovative and secure applications in the Internet of Things. Thanks to the Secure Element, it is possible to encode communication channels which require end-to-end security. Even IoT applications, which were not previously feasible due to insufficient security components, can now be realized.

Integration of Bluetooth Smart

Bluetooth Smart enables an endless number of applications with your smartphone. IoT, hospitality and car-sharing solutions, as well as smart home and payment applications - the possibilities are endless. The trusted service LEGIC Connect carries out the personalization. Three-dimensional processing of chip components in a minute space means that it can support two contactless technologies (RFID and Bluetooth Smart) and react very quickly to technical changes.

6000 series as part of the LEGIC technology platform

The new 6000 series is part of LEGIC’s open technology platform for smart ID solutions. The five components LEGIC Connect, Mobile SDK, Reader ICs, Smartcard ICs und LEGIC’s Key Management work together perfectly and guarantee secure ID and IoT applications.

With the trusted service LEGIC Connect, authorizations can be granted and withdrawn easily on a mobile phone. To do this, a mobile app is used, which is based on LEGIC’s Software Development Kit. The mobile ID rights are then uploaded and processed by a reader with LEGIC technology. The state-of-the-art key management means it is possible to implement secure ID solutions without having to grapple with the issue of cryptography and key management.

All current LEGIC reader series support RFID as well as mobile solutions, meaning mobile solutions can be combined with LEGIC prime, LEGIC advant and Mifare smartcards.

Would you like to know more about how our individual components work together as a whole and how the range could make your life simpler? At our booth 3D20 in hall 3, we will be presenting three brief live presentations each day on the subject of “smart identification solutions with specific application examples of LEGIC solutions. We look forward to welcoming you to the LEGIC booth at the following times:

  • 11am
  • 2pm
  • 4pm
