ISO/IEC 14443: Project state April 2012

Status of ISO/IEC 14443

Inductive coupled RFID systems are being used in a huge number of applications such as payment (credit cards), ticketing (public transport and events), access control (company card) and identity verification (ePass, eID). Inductive coupled RFID systems operated in the 13.56 MHz band and are primarily covered by the ISO/IEC standards 14443, 15693, 18000-3 and 18092.

The majority of applications, mentioned above, operate according to ISO/IEC 14443. This standard is designed for high security communication with ID1 sized (smart card) transponders at proximity distances of 10 cm or less. Transponders are field powered and use load modulation to transmit data back to a reader.

In the recent years there are a lot of activities to further improve and enhance this important standard.
The table below shows the state of ISO/IEC 14443 projects and the related test standard ISO/IEC 10373-6 as of April 2012:
