Aiming to increase the reach of card and mobile payment, Europay, Mastercard and Visa (EMV) point of sale (POS) terminals are getting more lightweight, replacing hardware security with software and back-end security. Off-the-shelf mobile devices, like your smart phone, can become an acceptance point for payment cards, a so-called SoftPOS.
With the release of PN7220, POS manufacturers can expand their products to the new SoftPOS payment device category. With an EMV Level 1-compliant performance, PN7220 provides high performance to the user, while the NCI interface offers seamless integration into Android. With the additional NFC Forum-compliant polling loop, PN7220 is also supporting multi-application use cases in a fully integrated way, supporting both EMV payment cards and loyalty or transit cards.
