About Contactless Smart Cards
Smart cards are pocket-sized cards that are generally made of plastic and embedded with integrated circuits. They are mainly used for identification, authentication, data storage, and application processing. Smart cards are mainly of two types: contact-based and contactless. Contactless cards generally use radio-frequency induction technology for data and information transfer. The rate of data transfer can vary between 106 kbits/s to 848 kbits/s. Communication is facilitated by an antenna. These cards use inductors to capture the incident RF interrogation signal, which is rectified and used to power the card's electronics. In other words, signals are sent to the card reader, which then transfers the data and information into the system. Contactless smart cards are more user-friendly than contact-based smart cards.
