Elva Inc. announced the new chip AT88SC 1608 designed by Elva for Atmel is being used in a revolutionary secure identity card application that merges secure smart card technology with fingerprint verification, card printing biometrics identification, and digital imaging. The encryption/decryption technology developed for Atmel by Elva combined with Polaroid’s’ PFS-100 fingerprint imaging developed by Atmel and Polaroid — compares the cardholders’ actual fingerprint against the fingerprint stored in the smart card or ID card verifying the holders’ identity.
Polaroid ID cards are actually integrated circuits called smart card ICs, acknowledged to be a large part of the most secure designs available in today’s market with the ability to guarantee that sensitive personal information will never leave the card undetected or without authorization. This is only one example of common success that binds Elva to the company’s partnership with Atmel, a worldwide advanced logic mixed signal, nonvolatile memory and RF Semiconductor company.
The new smart card IC provides 17,408 bits of serial EEPROM memory organized into nine zones, eight user zones, and one configuration zone. The device is optimized as a secure memory system for the smart card market. The designed chip includes 64-bit authentication, 8 sets of passwords and both authentication and password attempts counters.
Elva, Inc. creates secure transaction systems for the internet trade sector and exchange transactions between individuals and business structures. Smart card technology, telecommunications, security/cryptology and software engineering are Elva’s areas of expertise.
