NXP supplies tech for Summer Universiade

18/08/17

NXP Semiconductors is the official supplier of the smart ticketing solution for the 29th Summer Universiade in Taipei, a major international sporting event, where university student athletes from around the world compete in 17 categories. NXP’s MIFARE Ultralight Nano, a contactless smart paper ticketing IC, is powering the technology used in the entrance passes for the 150,000 athletes, government officials, university leaders, VIP guests, delegates and other event participants. The technology is being delivered in the form of an ID badge that will provide authorised access to the sports venues, training centres, athlete residences, meal programmes and VIP events such as the opening and closing ceremonies.

NXP says it collaborated with the Taipei City Government and the Universiade Committee to develop the MIFARE Ultralight Nano smart ticketing solution to meet the security standards of the organisers.

The Chief of Taipei Summer Universiade Committee, Li-Chong Su says: “2017 Taipei Summer Universiade is the biggest international sports event hosted by Taiwan. In order to ensure the security of every participant, including athletes, judges and VIP guests, flow control is critical. It’s our pleasure to collaborate with NXP, to create a secure solution. With their advanced technology, the complex identity verification process turns out to be faster, more convenient and more secure for all participants. This means athletes can be focused on the competition itself by reducing the accreditation waiting time.”
