Some innovations that will be on show at Trustech:

EDGELINK®
As market demand for dual interface cards continues to grow, Linxens Edgelink® offers an additional technology for connecting the module to the antenna into a card, in a very easy and cost optimized way. It is also fully-aligned with the industry’s migration towards the secure EMV standards.
Edgelink® comprises a copper wire antenna, an embedded connecting pad and a module connector. Edgelink® is easily integrated into any contact smartcard embedding process: the inlays do not require any additional materials or specialized equipment to connect the chip module to the inlay antenna. Equally important for card integrators from the manufacturing perspective is that production yields for Edgelink® connections are of the highest level.

COLORED TAPES
A world first, Linxens is unveiling the first colored microconnector tapes for smartcard modules. The innovation gives a variety of organizations – including banks, transport operators and retailers – the chance to stand out from the crowd, to build brand recognition and to enhance customer loyalty. For eGovernment and Access Control market segments, they offer a distinctive alternative to traditional designs. The contact or dual interface modules are available in blue, red or orange with the option of even greater customization by adding a company logo in the center of the module. All plating grades of gold or palladium are available, in fully-etched or micro-etched versions. The Colored Tapes can be combined with Linxens’ colored Inlays, bringing truly personalized solutions.

BIOMETRIC CARDS
Verifying the identity of a cardholder is a major challenge for organizations, including retailers and government agencies, with PIN codes being the traditional method of
authentication. At the same time, contactless payments are booming, bringing more convenience for consumers and allowing much faster transactions for retailers.
Biometric cards are a new generation of cards, switching from a 4 PIN digit user authentication to a full personal digital identification.

The user’s fingerprint is instantly matched through contact or contactless technology, leading the way for Biometric cards to ensure seamless and secure transactions,
regardless of their amount.

Linxens’ unique inlay technology allows all the required components for this new generation of cards to be embedded and interconnected on all types of connecting
elements.

Additionally, Linxens provides the technology which makes the fingerprint sensor fully compatible with smartcard requirements. Along with the retail sector, the cards are also ideal for the Financial Services, eGovernment and Access Control markets. Linxens technology is paving the way for mass deployment of biometric cards.
