Resulting from the combined efforts of STMicroelectronics and OTI, both companies have announced that their secure, contactless microcontroller has received full certification from MasterCard. The certification includes level 1, level 2, and Chip Assessment Security Testing certification for use as a dual application card, supporting both MasterCard PayPass and Visa PayWave applications. Reportedly, this makes the device the first fully certified solution to support both MasterCard and Visa contactless applications on a single chip. Users can create a single inventory to support both contactless programs, reducing time to market and improving cost structure. The device is based on the ST19WR02, which features an optimized analog RF interface and dedicated security features to deliver data rates up to 424 Kb/s.
