IoT adoption is propelling smart card technology to the forefront of business transactions. New applications, devices and adoption trends are driving a growing global market for smart-card technologies that is expected to reach $11 billion in 2022, up from nearly $7.3 billion in 2017, according to BCC Research’s Smart Card Technologies and Global Markets.
ST’s focus at the exhibition is on Smart & Secure Solutions for IoT. Demonstrations and displays from ST will showcase an array of technologies and solutions in payment technology and secure solutions dedicated to the banking and identification markets, secure transactions and wearable products for the Internet of Things, as well as for smarter homes and cities.
The ST demos will focus on four main sectors:
• Banking and ID solutions for smart-card businesses such as payment, people identification, and transport.
• Mobile security addressing SIM solutions for cellular connectivity in mobiles and wearables, as well as secure solutions for NFC.
• Authentication, covering brand protection, Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs), and strong authentication solutions for IoT security.
• NFC/RFID solutions for the IoT and Smart applications.
A highlight at the ST booth will be the mRobot Secure Platform, which is a complete system integration to manage platform integrity and to assure secure application update.
