Hybrid cards – all in one
Migration and acquisition generate the necessity for several data media in one card. Multiple applications for time recording, drinks machines, the canteen or door locks also require different data media. Plasticard-ZFT accommodates up to 7 data media in one ID card. You can find an overview of the combination possibilities here.
The future of the combination card?
Modern security chips are designed as processor chips and have enough computing power and memory to emulate a number of conventional types of chip. Functions of MIFARE Classic and LEGIC advant® can currently be activated and used as card-in-card applets. A chip then serves IT-access, MIFARE® and/or LEGIC® readers equally.
Such cards can be delivered with pure RFID ordual-interface technology, in which case the stored information can be accessed through contact or through radio waves.
Plasticard-ZFT is a LEGIC partner and would be happy to advise you about the advantages and the limits of modern card-in-card applications or other multi-function chips, such as the cross-standard transponder LEGIC CTC4096.
