Hybrid Cards - All In One
Combi-cards contain at least to technologies of the same kind, typically multiple RFID-chips, with identical or differing resonance frequencies. Thus, an ID-card is made fit for multiple reading technologies and/or system providers. Hybrid cards , however, unite different data carrier technologies of the same medium. In principle, nearly all known technologies from magnet stripe, over infrared codes to contact and RFID-chips can be combined. The special characteristic of the hybrid card is that all technologies are operated separately on the card. Thus, countless applications and/or systems can be operated with only card.
Migration - Combi-cards Connect Generations and Sites
Many organisations have infrastructure for access and time recording which are based on different data carriers and have grown over a period of time. Technological advancement, increasing security demands but also company acquisitions make it necessary to unite different chips and other data carriers in a single card. This protects standing investments and infrastructure because standing systems and reader generations can be operated parallelly. In a migration to a more modern technology, the transition to the chosen future technology is made easier and economically sustainable by a combi-card.
LEGIC® and MIFARE® on one Chip?
Certain technologies like LEGIC advant® ISO14443 and MIFARE® can only be realised as a combination card with great difficulty. For those applications, Plasticard-ZFT offers the unity of both worlds with the LEGIC® card-in-card on a DESFire-platform. The new LEGIC® MP312 Chip (available soon) offers forward-looking approaches for the parallel use of MIFARE® and LEGIC® in one card.
Combination and Hybrid Cards Should be Tested in Advance!
All variations of this card type contain, within their core, several elements like chips or antennas. Therefore, interactions may occur that influence the performance when reading and writing. Plasticard-ZFT supports its customers with the appropriate know-how, and the development and manufacturing of necessary samples for field testing.
