Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX/ OTCQX: IFNNY) presents the 40 nm SLC36/ SLC37 safety and security controller systems with high-performance and also energy-efficient 32-bit ARM ® SecurCore ® SC300 ™ dual-interface protection chips. The brand-new hardware system is supplemented with a SOLID Flash ™ memory and also is additionally readily available with or without the most recent application remedies. The product families come full with a complete variety of twin interface as well as contactless modules including traditional and inductive combining innovations.

The crypto controller system offers outstanding performance and adaptability for contactless payment, ID, ticketing, and also gain access to applications. With this, Infineon particularly sustains the enhancing pattern in the direction of digital as well as linked gadgets that meet the current cryptographic requirements for AES and also ECC. Contactless deals can be accurately secured as well as at the very same time deal times can be further reduced. This likewise certifies the 40 nm technology system as a basis for SECORA ™ options, particularly for repayment, IoT, as well as ID applications.

Because the outbreak of the corona pandemic (Covid-19), many individuals favor contactless as well as hygienic transactions as well as repayment approaches. In 2019, 25 percent of the residents in Germany used cashless settlement approaches, whereas by 2020, 50 percent were currently picking cards over cash money. Worldwide, contactless deals utilizing cards as well as wearable devices expanded by 40 percent; 80 percent of these for amounts much less than US$ 25– a location formerly dominated by money payments. The pattern in the direction of further contactless digitalization is likewise unstoppable in ID and also transportation applications.

“With the boosting demand for contactless ID, transit and settlement transactions, high-performance smart safety and security styles and also products are needed to stand up to the ever before more strict security requirements of post-quantum safety while preserving high contactless efficiency,” said Ioannis Kabitoglou, Senior Vice President & & General Manager Smart Card Solutions at Infineon. “We have actually leveraged our expertise and also cross-industry expertise in security as well as PQC design to establish, certify and also accredit the next generation of the leading dual-interface safety and security controller. With the 40 nm system, we have been able to minimize advancement efforts for our clients via sped up product as well as remedy layout as well as make it possible for quick time-to-market.”

Faster time-to-market with a high level of safety

Based on the ARM ® SecurCore ® SC300 style, the 40 nm household covers the complete variety of the marketplace, from the tiniest to the most effective chip, as well as in conformity with the most recent cryptological needs for ECC as well as AES. The household’s design supports various repayment as well as ID applications with differing option and memory requirements. Because of quick launch as well as brief lead times based on cutting-edge logistics concepts, the system has actually efficiently been presented to customers in an extremely brief time with raised flexibility and also lowered efforts at the same time. This accelerates time-to-market and also enables clients to optimize their study and advancement resources. The products’ exceptional efficiency capabilities and also complete conformity with all open standards additionally support the implementation of advanced settlement, ID, and multi-applications.

Particularly, wearables with small type variables, such as watches, rings, precious jewelry, and also metal cards profit from this. The supported criteria are ISO14443 type A/B, ISO18092 (NFC) for contactless and ISO7816 for contact-based interfaces. The platform offers the greatest performance for 40 nm items with body clock frequencies of as much as 100 MHz, which is particularly critical for brief transaction times. Products of the system can be adapted to all local needs, thus resolving worldwide markets and also supporting regional market requirements.
