NXP Semiconductors and HID Global are working together to introduce a global, generic mobile access solution for NFC-enabled mobile phones. NFC enables secure information sharing from one device to another over short distances based upon existing contactless standards.

The jointly developed solution leverages NXP and HID Global advanced reader technologies within a physical access control infrastructure.

The solution supports existing HID Global readers and those based on the company's iCLASS SIO-Enabled (iCLASS SE) platform. The iCLASS SE readers will be powered by NXP's new CLRC663 reader ICs and support 13.56MHz smart cards that are ISO14443 compliant, including MIFARE DESFIRE EV1.

The new mobile access management solution is backward-compatible with new HID Global iCLASS readers, and is forward-compatible to HID Global's Trusted Identity Platform (TIP) ecosystem.

Dr. Selva Selvaratnam, senior vice president and chief technology officer, HID Global, said, "NXP is playing a vital role in the adoption of NFC technology among handset manufacturers and developer communities. By working together, this application can be deployed immediately on a significant number of mobile phones. We are excited to team up and combine our leadership positions in the access management market to offer the industry new leading-edge solutions."
