Austriamicrosystems device enables secure NFC services to be introduced to consumers



Austriamicrosystems has introduced the first demonstration that enables NFC (near field communication) data transfer on removable secure elements using a micro-antenna design. 

Developed in co-operation with Infineon Technologies, the AS3922 is designed to speed up the deployment and the acceptance of standalone NFC systems based on ultra-small form factors such as microSD.

Combining an Infineon security contactless microcontroller with Austriamicrosystems’ AS3922 RFID front-end chip, this active NFC system focuses on enabling the introduction of secure NFC services to the consumer.

Infineon’s secure microcontrollers are certified according to the Common Criteria and EMVCo international standards and answers to the requirements of NFC Mobile Payment.
