Infineon secures contactless transactions with crypto controllers
As contactless payment, identity, ticketing and access operations gain traction, Infineon Technologies has developed the 40nm SLC36 / SLC37 security controller platforms. They are based on the high performance, energy efficient 32bit Arm SecurCore SC300 dual interface security chips and supplemented with a Solid Flash memory.
The 40nm technology enables internal clock frequencies of up to 100MHz, which is particularly crucial for short transaction times, says Infineon. The two security controller families have a range of dual interface and contactless modules, including traditional and inductive coupling technologies.
The 40nm technology platform complies with cryptological requirements for AES and ECC standards and is qualified for Secora solution, for payment, IoT and ID applications. Infineon adds that contactless transactions can be reliably secured and that transaction times can also be reduced. They also support the ISO14443 type A/B and ISO18092 (NFC) standards for contactless, and ISO7816, for contact-based interfaces
The crypto controllers support the implementation of sophisticated payment, ID, and multi-applications, including small form factor wearables, such as watches, rings, jewellery, and metal cards.
All products can be adapted to all regional requirements for regional market requirements.
Products of the 40nm SLC36 / SLC37 controller-based crypto platforms are available now. Certificates from EMVCo and BSI for CC are available.
