Notice of Discontinuance, PICO14443B mode on iClass and iClass SE credentials

June 30, 2017

HID Global is committed to providing the highest quality physical access control solutions to our
customers. As a solution provider, it is important to efficiently manage the lifecycle of our products
including working with those components we source from upstream vendors.

Due to a change in chip supply, the 13+ year integrated circuit used to manufacture iCLASS and iCLASS SE credentials will be
replaced with a new chip. Because of low demand, the new chip will not carry forward compatibility with the RF
PICO14443B mode.

TIMELINE FOR PRODUCT CHANGE

  • Start of Replacement Part Sales – Now

Part numbers for all programmed cards will not change. The EOL of the RF PICO14443B interface will not impact
compatibility with finished goods readers. HID and our embedded partners have been analyzing and testing
compatibilities with 3rd part products and do not expect any negative impact in partner applications.
