EMVCo Level 1 contactless Terminal Type Approval compliance requires strong expertise and making the correct design decisions since the initial phases. Contactless performance is strongly affected by the size and environment conditions of the antenna. MobileKnowledge experience and expertise will have a strong positive impact on your product time to market and success.
More and more, ultra-small wearables are targeting EMVCo payment applications. The small antenna used in these cases is a challenge when trying to reach the required EMV RF performance. Moreover, the limited power available on these devices may also have an impact on the performance.
