Contactless IC Chip
- AES supported
RC-SA01 contactless IC chip supports greatly-enhanced security with the adoption of Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
* FeliCa Standard SD1：The 1st generation of the IC chips and their products of FeliCa Standard products which support AES encryption.
Highest level of security for contactless smart-card chip
RC-SA01 IC chip has enhanced security provided by AES encryption.
The product is the contactless IC card chip with embedded software which has acquired EAL6+ certification in accordance with Common Criteria (ISO/IEC 15408), the international standard for evaluation criteria in IT security (Certificate issue date:2013/3/19, Certificate expiry date:2023/3/19).
Multi-application platform with higher performance and reliability
Higher transaction speed is achieved for every type of card application, such as transportation ticket and e-payment. In addition, the IC chip achieves lower power consumption than the current FeliCa IC chips.
The new Error Checking and Correcting (ECC) functionality improves the reliability of non-volatile memory data.
Able to communicate with NFC Forum-compatible readers
The chip complies with Type 3 Tag functionality defined by the NFC Forum. Therefore, the card with the chip can communicate with NFC-compatible smartphones and readers.
