Articles explaining Smart Cards Page 1

Smart Cards are pocket-sized cards including one or more integrated circuits (ICs). They can act as contact cards or contactless cards, depending on the communication technology included, such as SIM, magnetic strips, LF, HF, and UHF RFID, or NFC. Dual-mode or hybrid smart cards can include multiple technologies at once. Smart card surfaces can be printed and customised with information, logos, graphics and pictures. Typical use cases include banking, security, identification, access control, and toll systems in industrial and consumer settings. This blog contains expert articles and success stories, as well as news about smart card technology and applications.

Ensuring a Smooth “Tap & Go” Experience

In all areas where NFC is applied, especially in contactless payments, failure in communication can lead to bad user acceptance. Ralph Kamp, Product Manager for NFC test solutions at COMPRION explicates: “Probably all of us have experienced this before: You are lining up at the checkout of your favorite coffee shop, wanting to pay your morning coffee quickly with a contactless card or smartphone.

For whatever reason, tap & go doesn’t work. The line is getting longer and longer, the faces of the people behind you are getting grumpier, until finally, you must run to the next ATM to get some cash. This is bad for you, bad for the other customers, bad for the coffee shop – and for the payment provider – bad for everyone.”

While other cities are still working on theories, Santander is putting “Smart City” concepts into practice. Since 2009, the Spanish city is continuously implementing smart applications on all levels of the city – with no end in sight. Whether smart garbage containers, sensor-controlled traffic or digital citizen participation, in Santander the sky is the limit when it comes to innovation.

Smart cards with fingerprint sensors, Bluetooth cards for indoor RTLS

B-Id wants to step out of the “classic” smart card segment of the card market with innovative features

Until about a year ago the hardware development of smart card applications had stagnated, says Yiwen Jin, CEO of B-Id. “Display cards and fingerprint cards for ID, bank, and access applications and Bluetooth cards for indoor RTLS and secure temperature monitoring of transports regarding medical products are now pushing the card industry forward.” Whereas innovative applications have been covered almost solely via software in the past, projects in Asia and the US that focus on the technological refinement of the cards are currently underway. In an interview with “RFID im Blick Global”, Yiwen Jin talks about technological updates regarding display and fingerprint cards as well as newly developed Bluetooth cards. Millions of units of cards that are needed in different projects prove that real requirements are being implemented and not just technical “gimmicks”.

Visa and Mastercard granted approval to Smartrac’s wire booster antenna, valid in connection with Infineon’s SLJ 32 Payment EMV solution product and Infineon`s innovative “Coil on Module” chip packaging technology. Card manufacturers will benefit from a simplified approval process for their own products based on that combination.

Smartrac’s wire booster antenna has received Visa's Letter of Approval (LoA) and Mastercard’s Component Confirmatory Statement (CCS) in connection with Infineon SLJ 32 payment solution. It is based on Infineon's proven SLE 77 chip platform and incorporates a Java OS with Visa's latest 2.8.1.g and Mastercard M/Chip Advance v1.1 applet. As of now, card manufacturers can refer to these approvals in their own product approval process and thereby significantly reduce time to market and costs. Approved products can be used until the end of 2023 for Visa and until September 2019 for Mastercard.

RFID inlays are manufactured throughout the world for many purposes: for biometric passports, the contactless smart card market (e-ID, electronic healthcare cards, payment cards, public transportation) and for dual interface applications. At the same time, wire-embedded HF-RFID antennas are available and offer a number of advantages over printed, etched or galvanized variations. Among others, the ability to freely select shapes is enticing for card and passport manufacturers, since this can lead to competitive advantages. Further benefits such as environmental friendliness, durability and improved product quality should also be mentioned.
