Cards and security devices for personal identification — Contactless proximity objects — Part 3: Initialization and anticollision (Adopted ISO/IEC 14443-3:2018, fourth edition, 2018-07)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC 14443-3 throughout.
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 14443-3:18 (adopted ISO/IEC 14443-3:2016). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 14443-3:2018 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document describes the following:
— polling for proximity cards or objects (PICCs) entering the field of a proximity coupling device (PCD);
— the byte format, the frames and timing used during the initial phase of communication between PCDs and PICCs;
— the initial Request and Answer to Request command content;
— methods to detect and communicate with one PICC among several PICCs (anticollision);
— other parameters required to initialize communications between a PICC and PCD;
— optional means to ease and speed up the selection of one PICC among several PICCs based on application criteria;
— optional capability to allow a device to alternate between the functions of a PICC and a PCD to communicate with a PCD or a PICC, respectively. A device which implements this capability is called a PXD.
Protocol and commands used by higher layers and by applications and which are used after the initial phase are described in ISO/IEC 14443-4.
This document is applicable to PICCs of Type A and of Type B (as described in ISO/IEC 14443-2), to PCDs (as described in ISO/IEC 14443-2) and to PXDs.
NOTE 1 Part of the timing of data communication is defined in ISO/IEC 14443-2.
NOTE 2 Test methods for this document are defined in ISO/IEC 10373-6.
