Ismaning, Germany, September 28, 2011 (euro adhoc) - SCM Microsystems, a leading
provider of solutions for secure access, secure identity and secure exchange and
a business unit of Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE, Frankfurt: INV), today
announced the launch of a new near field communication (NFC) Solutions
Development Kit (SDK) that enables application developers and system integrators
to accelerate time to market of NFC technology-based readers and terminals that
support Device-to-Tag and Peer-To-Peer applications such as event ticketing,
retail loyalty, physical and logical access as well as vending, public transport
and mobile payment.

"With major mobile phone manufacturers now introducing a variety of new
NFC-enabled smart phones and other devices, the mobile infrastructure for
NFC-based consumer and commercial applications is rapidly being put in place,"
said David Holmes, vice president Mobility & NFC Solutions for Identive. "NFC
technology is creating tremendous excitement as it promises to revolutionize the
way we live, work and play, spawning innovative applications for everything from
payment to healthcare to social networking." 

"Developers are racing to deliver new solutions that leverage the potential of
NFC," said Michael Ganzera, vice president Business Development and Marketing
for SCM Microsystems. "SCM´s new NFC SDK combines our broad expertise in
contactless technologies with detailed NFC know how, enabling developers to
easily upgrade existing solutions with NFC or to build entirely new applications
that combine traditional contactless solutions with new NFC capabilities."  

The SCM NFC Solutions Development Kit: 
SCM´s NFC Solutions Development Kit consists of two SCM3712 NFC reader modules
and one SCL3711 reader, as well as all necessary drivers, source code examples
for handling Device-to-Tag and Peer-to-Peer NFC applications, optimized software
development tools, and essential documentation covering NFC and PC interfaces.
SCM´s SDK also includes a complete set of NFC Forum-compliant tags in various
form factors, which model NFC application data such as Internet service
initiation using a URL, line of text, smart poster or business card. The
contactless reader modules used in the NFC SDK are compact in size, facilitating
the creation of small-footprint terminals that are optimized for end user
convenience in retail countertop environments. The SDK also works with SCM´s
widely installed contactless SCL reader/token family, including the SCL010 and
SCL011. Solutions developers and integrators can therefore use a variety of SCM
NFC modules and readers to create the necessary infrastructure and products for
an array of new commercial NFC solutions. For example, a direct and reliable
two-way communication between two devices can be established, allowing a mobile
phone to be used as a smart credential when presented to an NFC-equipped
terminal, enabling applications such as loyalty couponing or points redemption. 

The new NFC SDK will be available mid-October both through SCM´s traditional
sales channels and via the Company´s online NFC marketplace at
