Infineon security chips enable world’s first NFC payment ring

Infineon security chips enable world’s first NFC payment ring
NFCRing has introduced the world's first EMVCo compliant payment ring based on a contactless security chip from Infineon Technologies. The tiny, water-proof smart wearable works like a contactless payment card. Users can pay by simply holding their finger with the ring closely to any EMVCo contactless-enabled payment terminal. The ring uses NFC technology to communicate data over short distances of a few centimetres.

Infineon launches "Internet of Sensors" pilot project

Infineon Technologies has launched what it claims to be one of the most important European pilot line projects for sensors and sensor systems at its Dresden site. The project name, IoSense, is derived from the “Internet of Sensors”. The IoT will require vast quantities of sensors in order to succeed. Cost-effective production of sensor systems is, therefore, a key prerequisite as they enable devices and systems to capture and process the properties of the physical world.
