Smartcards are becoming an increasingly large part of data, electronic funs transfer (EFT), and security type applications. Smartcard devices today typically include a central processing unit which is interfaced into a data system either by one way wireless or more typically physical contact of electrodes. As the needs for more portable data, automated physical access control, unversal record access and paperless transactions increases so does the need for functionality of the smart card levelAdvantages1. Increased functionality/use2. Higher level of integration compared to current artDisadvantages1. More manufacturing steps (in early stage designs)2. The invention has not been prototyped, however all of the modules and design can be constructed via the capability that will reside in the FDC and its partners.
