NFC RFID PC/SC Smart Card Reader Writer - DL533R


The DL533R reader device is based on NXP’s PR533 highly integrated NFC solution chip - transceiver module for contactless reader/writer communication at 13.56 MHz.

It has dedicated ROM firmware to handle different RF protocols by an integrated microcontroller, which has USB 2.0 full-speed host interface and CCID protocol support.

It is ideal for use as a part of PC integration & peripherals, Electronic identity (eID) applications, Online payment/Internet security, identity validations, vending machines, e-kiosk etc.


RF protocols


DL533R supports the following RF modes:

    • PCD mode for FeliCa (212 kbps and 424 kbps)
    • ISO/IEC14443 Type A and B (from 106 kbps to 848 kbps)
    • MIFARE® (106 kbps), ISO14443-B type cards (106 kbps)
    • picoPass tag (106 kbps)
    • Innovision Jewel cards (106 kbps)

The Initiator passive mode (from 106 kbps to 424 kbps) can be supported through the PC/SC transparent mode.

    • MIFARE Classic® family
    • MIFARE Ultralight® an Ultralight® C
    • NTAG family
    • MIFARE DESFire® cards
    • MIFARE Plus®
    • PicoPass
    • Jewel/Topaz
    • FeliCa
    • Other contactless cards which comply to ISO14443-4 standard

Standards compliance


According to the manufacturer’s specification, PR533 offers commands in order for applications to be compliant with “EMV Contactless Communication Protocol Specification V2.0.1”.

It also supports RF protocols ISO/IEC 14443A and B such as compliancy with Smart eID standards can be achieved at the application level.

Support of USB 2.0 full speed, interoperable with USB 3.0 hubs.

When used in PCD mode, it is compliant with EMV contactless specification V2.0.1.


Supported operating systems

    • Microsoft Windows 2000 or higher, including Windows 10, both 32 and 64-bit versions
