DIGISEQ, Contactless Payments, Wearable Payments, Payment Rings, Ring Inlay, MastercardDIGISEQ has received Mastercard certification for a pre-certified concentric ring inlay, opening the market for small independents and large brands to launch payment rings quickly and effectively.

The inclusion of the ring inlay with an integrated secured NFC chip can deliver multiple services, opening new use cases in addition to payments, such as loyalty, access, events, and hospitality for consumers’ everyday lives.

The ultra-slim concentric ring inlay is an addition to the full range of pre-certified chip inlays based on Infineo’s SECORA™ Connect S SLJ37 security solution. It provides support for diverse and innovative product creators with whichever form factor best suits their product. The inlays are designed to be quickly and simply embedded into a large range of ring designs and sizes, so that product creators can launch their unique products at speed with no in-house technical or RF engineering expertise.

This device, available in the ultra-compact USON8-7 surface mount package, measuring just 2×2 mm, makes it ideal for placement on small inlays for incorporation into consumer products without the need for any specialist production equipment or certifications. The pre-certified ring inlay is available from the manufacturing partner Universal Smart Cards.

“The SECORA Connect S solution is specially designed for field-powered wearable implementation and allows fast and seamless enablement of contactless payments with passive wearables,” said Tolgahan Yildiz, Vice President Trusted Mobile Connectivity & Transactions at Infineon. “Our security solution is the basis for this new pre-certified plug-and-play ring inlay from our Associated Security Network partner DIGISEQ which can be easily integrated into new sleek product designs. It is great to see that DIGISEQ has successfully expanded its product portfolio allowing NFC personalization and tokenization services based on the SECORA Connect product family.”

“It is very exciting to be part of the development of the concentric ring inlay that added a further form factor to our existing range of ‘SmarTap’ wearables inlays,” said Chris AllenDirector of Universal Smart Cards. “Our range of Mastercard-certified inlays enable brands and OEMs to add contactless payment, provenance, and NFC customer engagement into their product portfolios with ease and at low cost. The ring inlay pushes these boundaries further; it’s by far our thinnest inlay, and yet delivers optimum performance for what has become an extremely popular jewelry piece.”
