LEGIC’s CTC smartcard ICs are the perfect choice for migration to LEGIC advant. Combined on a CTC, three RF standards can communicate with the reader IC and are protected against attacks by means of modern encryption algorithms.
LEGICs CTC (Cross-Standard Transponder Chip) is the solution for a flexible migration to LEGIC advant. The CTC platform enables users to move between installations with different RF standards.
Depending on security requirements, individual areas can be selectively designed and implemented with prime, 4000 or 6000 series reader ICs
This means that, depending on security requirements, individual areas can be selectively designed and implemented with prime, 4000 or 6000 series reader ICs.
Investment security and sustainability
The CTC comes with pre-configured, confidential key material as a standard and uses modern encryption algorithms. At the same time, there is a prime memory on the chip; a LEGIC reader IC can also access the prime memory via the advant interface.
Users often use the chip as a migration solution. However, the CTC behaves like a normal LEGIC advant IC and can therefore be used equally: Structure, authentication algorithm and use cases are identical.
Simplified ID card design
The CTC is a single smartcard IC for different RF standards on one identification medium. For ID media manufacturers, this means a simplified card design with only one antenna and lower costs.

The CTC platform creates individual and flexible migration scenarios for today’s users of prime applications. Instead of having to replace the entire installation in one step, with the CTC platform, the smartcard IC can be switched over to advant and the readers of individual areas to 4000 or 6000 series step by step. Once the full migration to advant has been completed, if desired the LEGIC RF standard interface can be indefinitely disconnected.
Three RF standards
The multi-RF smartcard IC with 4k byte memory communicates via ISO 14443 A and the LEGIC RF standard. It enables a flexible migration to LEGIC advant.
The first smartcard IC on 13,56 MHz with three RF standards for all types of multi-application. The reading distance is up to 25 cm and up to 127 applications can be realised on one chip (4k byte memory).
