This article describes which encoding methods are supported by Nexus Card SDK.

The following ID card encoding methods are supported:

RFID:

  • LEGIC (prime, advant)
  • LEGIC Hybrid + CTC (prime+advant)
  • MIFARE Classic (1K, 4K)
  • MIFARE DESFire EV1 (optionally with SAM AV1/AV2)
  • MIFARE DESFire EV2
  • HITAG 1/2/S
  • Proxif
  • HID Prox (read only)
  • EM (read only)
  • UHF EPC Gen2
  • iCode SLI

Others:

  • Magnetic Stripes (all ISO tracks)
  • NFC Mobile phone with a suitable RFID applet

Integrated encoding of contact chips, LEGIC, MIFARE, and magnetic stripes is possible for a variety of ID card printers. See Card printers with integrated encoding.

Generally, a maximum of 1 RFID encoding position is available inside the card printer. Exception: The FARGO HDP5000 has (with the “Duplex” option) 2 RFID encoding positions. At each position, one of the following encoding devices can be used (if enough space for mounting the device or antenna is available):
