STMicroelectronics and Gemalto announced a new partnership to develop a range of solutions to initiate and distribute digital security services for NFC (Near Field Communications) applications.

The partnership aims to deliver solutions that will meet the strong global demand for NFC-based services. The partners are addressing the industry’s need for a secure element, such as the widely adopted SIM-based NFC solution, for trusted NFC applications.

The firms plan to further develop a number of additional packaged offers that include the highly secure ST33 EAL5+ chipset from ST, specially designed for mobile applications, and Gemalto’s secure operating system, mobile handset software, Trusted Service Management and secure personalisation services. The combined turn-key solution will accelerate the adoption and implementation of NFC services, including consumer applications such as contactless payment, transportation ticketing, personal data protection and device integrity.

The development of a state-of-the-art embedded secure element incorporates the industry’s leading public key cryptography, matching the latest GP 2.2, JavaCard 3.0.1 specifications as well as Common Criteria EAL4+ and EMVCo certifications. Available both as a System-in-Package (SIP) version combined with ST’s ST21NFCA NFC controller, or as a stand-alone secure element in DFN or micro-SD packages, it will offer a full range of free memory sizes, up to 768 Kbytes, for applications that can be managed throughout the product lifecycle through innovative memory management.
