|Boosted and passive NFC||Ultra-low power consumption||
Longest battery lifetime. High power efficiency since the boosted NFC front-end requires very little power from the smart device battery; the passive NFC antenna draws no power at all.
|Packaged system-on-chip solutions||Plug-and-play NFC solution||Faster time-to-market. No need for additional NFC modem chip since NFC front-end is already implemented.|
|Uniform Secure Element platform||Flexibility||One SE fits all. Customers can leverage the same Secure Element (SE) platform for both boosted and passive NFC architerctures to support different form factor requirements.|
|Ultra-small physical footprint||Increased design flexibility||Ideally suited to low-profile microcontrollers. PCB area of only 13.6 mm2, offering more space for other components.|
|Simple interface with APDU over ISO7816 or IPC||Speed||Rapid and easy host integration for fast time-to-market.|
|Pre-certified payment applications||Faster time-to-market at lower risk||Full system offering facilitates payment network approval process.|
|Remote SE management via Decentralized Secure Element Management (DSEM) and via Secure Element Issuer Trusted Service Management (SEI TSM)||Efficient SE management in the field||Both traditional and innovative remote SE management in the field for maximum deployment flexibility.|
|Support for CIPURSE™ open standard||Multi-application schemes||Support for latest issuer demands for multi-application cards build on open standards such as CIPURSE™, thus enabling sustainable business models while still ensuring backward compatibility with legacy infrastructure.|
|Ready for FIDO U2F, FIDO 2.0||New use cases||Abbility to differentiate offering by adding authentication and other innovative features to the connected device to target new use cases.|
|Best-in-class support and documentation combined with service enablement partner program||Seamless migration||Infineon's global support team with its in-depth expertise, complemented by global partnerships with relevant players, ensure a seamless migration path, ease-of-use, fastest time-to-market and resource efficiencies.|
