27-10-2021 | Infineon | Semiconductors

Infineon Technologies AG complements its current payment offering based on the latest 40nm technology platform with a new portfolio of SECORA Pay payment solutions.

The plug-and-play solutions leverage the broad expertise in contactless payment technology and use its SOLID FLASH chip platform, which addresses new payment card and device solutions while satisfying the latest requirements. The offering comprises new applets and customised value-added products for standard payment cards (SECORA Pay S), as well as multi-application cards (SECORA Pay X) and components for off-the-shelf solutions that can turn any device into a payment device (SECORA Pay W). Also, the product portfolio offers applets of global (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) and domestic networks. It provides state-of-the-art contactless and personalisation performance, enabling MasterCard contactless transactions of 200ms.

The solutions offer backward compatibility to existing SECORA Pay product offerings in terms of card production regarding antenna designs, personalisation, and product certification. The family utilises a security controller, including certified software integrated into CoM chip modules and fine-tuned inlays for seamless card production. Since the company is employing inductive coupling technology together with wire embedded card antennas, the CoM system provides the highest flexibility in card designs. It is, therefore, an excellent fit to seamlessly address future market trends such as environmentally-friendly cards from recycled and ocean-bound plastic or wood, high-performance dual-interface metal or LED cards.

The pre-certified SECORA Pay W with SPA2.1, a very small antenna on 35mm film tape, meets the increasing demand for payment accessories and new payment form factors. The turnkey solution, together with payment and tokenisation services offered by partners, enables the simple integration of payment functionality into end-customer applications. It allows convenient contactless payment functionalities for wearables such as wristbands, key fobs or other form factors.
