Ams solutions gain EMV certification

EMV certified product

High performance analog ICs and sensors provider ams AG has announced that a new range of payment terminals from NBS Payment Solutions containing its AS3911 reader IC have gained EMV certification.

The 510 and 710 series of NOIRE terminals from NBSPS are now approved for the receipt of payments from contactless cards bearing the MasterCard PayPass or Visa payWave symbols.

The AS3911 RFID reader IC in the NBSPS terminals provides the RF and analog front end, reading any contactless payment card meeting EMV requirements. A reference design similar to a state-of-the-art contactless payment system, developed by ams, provides a ready-to-use blueprint for manufacturers wishing to produce a new EMV-certified terminal.

 “NBS Payment Solutions’ successful launch of the new NOIRE line of terminals provides proof that using the AS3911 reader IC offers a quick and reliable way to implement an EMV-compliant contactless payment interface”, said Mark Dickson, Senior Marketing Manager for RFID/NFC at ams.
