World’s first NFC payment ring enabled by Infineon

Infineon drives innovation in smart wearable payment with security chips offering extraordinary contactless performance.

Unique payment experience – enabled by an Infineon security controller

The world’s first NFC payment ring promises a totally new payment experience with new-found levels of convenience. Just think about it – no need to take wallets or cards to the beach but you’re never short of “cash”. All you need to do is swipe or tap your ring if you fancy a cool drink or ice-cream. Your NFC ring is even water-proof!

Never before has an EMV-compliant scheme been delivered through such a small, smart wearable. Given the stakes, it’s hardly surprising that an Infineon contactless security controller offering extraordinary contactless performance was selected for this benchmark project. It places the NFC Ring® invented by McLear Ltd – with Infineon inside – at the forefront of wearable technology innovation.

The world's first EMVCo compliant payment ring has been introduced lately by NFC Ring® in partnership with Visa. It is based on a contactless security chip from Infineon Technologies. For the first time ever, contactless system developers have managed to build an EMVCo-compliant payment finger ring with a security chip and passive contactless antenna. Infineon drives innovation in smart wearable payment with security chips offering extraordinary contactless performance.
