RC-S108 Token

RC-S109 Token Module

  • Operates with AES
  • High-speed processing
  • Compact size

Employing AES, the new-generation standard coding system, these products are ideal for use in fields requiring high-level security, such as e-money payment or employee ID authentication.
By including them in products such as wristbands, key fobs, figurines, etc., they can be used for a wide variety of configurations other than cards.


Operates with AES

In code communications between this product and a reader terminal, in addition to the standard DES (Data Encryption Standard) coding system, the use of AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) realizes stronger security. What's more, the IC chip mounted in this product is the world's first contactless IC card chip to acquire the evaluation assurance level EAL6+ of the Common Criteria (ISO/IEC 15408, the international standard for evaluation criteria in IT security).

High-speed processing

This product performs such operations as card detection, mutual authentication and data reading/writing in just 0.1 seconds. In addition to operating with a communications speed of 212 kbps, it can handle double that speed, i.e., 424 kbps*. The IC token transmission speed is changed automatically according to the speed of transmission from the reader, thus realizing easier use of the high-speed communications function.

* When using 424 kbps for communications, the reader must be able to operate with 424 kbps communications.

Automatic error correction in NVM

This product has error-correction functionality. When writing user data to NVM, dedicated data ECC (Error Correcting Code) per 32-bit is written simultaneously. The ECC data is used to correct 1-bit data error when reading user data from NVM. This set of processes is performed automatically.

Compact size

While maintaining sufficient communication distance and promoting antenna downsizing, it has been possible to achieve a more compact form to broaden the scope of usage.

*1 Communication distance depends on the peripheral environment. Under ideal conditions and data transfer rate 212 kbps, this value is unaffected by electromagnetic waves or metallic substances.
*2 To utilize communication at 424 kbps, the reader must be able to communicate at 424 kbps.
