Contactless excellence for smart services
Convenience is king
In an increasingly converged world, users are looking for one thing above all – convenience. More and more services spanning payment, access, ticketing and identification are being delivered through mobile devices, wearables, token or smart cards, equipped with contactless technologies like NFC or BLE. Users expect these services to work quickly and securely. In other words, they want to just swipe and go!
Building on security and interoperability with Infineon
At Infineon, we can help our customers navigate rising demands for user convenience in the fast-evolving, contactless landscape. We know that the successful implementation of new smart services hinges not only on security but also the interoperability across both legacy and new contactless infrastructures. We are familiar with the need for compliance with a host of specifications and standards such as EMVCo, CIPURSE™ and ICAO governing everything from payment to identification. And we have the right answer for further growing data volumes.
Our unique combination of contactless performance and SOLID FLASH™ memory offers maximum convenience and fastest time-to-market. Highlights of our proven, future-ready portfolio include Coil on Module, very high bit rates and mega memory. In addition, we are actively driving industry and test standards to achieve maximum contactless performance and interoperability. What’s more, through our infrastructure partner program, we help all players throughout the contactless ecosystem to achieve their performance, interoperability and security goals.
Customers around the world trust in our contactless solutions and services. We have already delivered more than 4 billion contactless security microcontrollers for payment, identification and transport ticketing projects worldwide. Our long list of reference projects speaks for itself:
