STMicro unveils contactless module for wearables

Friday 20 October 2017 | 07:36 CET | News
STMicroelectronics launched the ST53G System-in-Package product that combines its expertise in NFC and secure-transaction chips and enables contactless transactions on wristbands or fashionwear like watches or jewelry. ST said its new ST53G System-in-Package overcomes these barriers by combining a miniaturised and enhanced NFC radio with a secure banking chip in one compact 4mm x 4mm module. The company's proprietary boostedNFC technology allows wearables with small antennas to interact with card readers over typical contactless distances.
