STMicroelectronics Releases NFC Controller With Built-in Secure Element

Nov 19, 2018

STMicroelectronics has released a new Near Field Communication (NFC)-enabled system-on-a-chip (SoC) product intended to make NFC transmissions faster and connectivity more secure. The SoC, known as the ST54J, comes with three products built into a single die: an NFC controller compliant with the ISO 14443 and ISO 15693 protocols, a secure element and an embedded subscriber identity module (eSIM) card for network connectivity. The resulting solution enables all three to be built into a device such as a smartphone, without requiring as much space as would be necessary for the three individual products, according to Christian Vignes, the director of STMicroelectronics’ Mobile Security Business Line.
