Introducing the MULTOS step/one SC4-P20 Series

The new MULTOS step/one P20 series is our latest platform release in the SC4 product family, designed to service the entry-level EMV, identity and general purpose smartcard markets.  The P20 range, supporting Real-Time Enablement and Seamless Transition, is the natural progression in our highly successful SC4 product family, designed for customers both new to MULTOS and those currently using our SC4-P12 range and planning for the next generation of EMV products.

In addition to the standard array of features available on MULTOS step/one products, the P20 series brings the following benefits:

  • Supports Real-Time Enablement (RTE).  Allows the perso bureau to integrate product key management functions right in the bureau during personalisation
  • Ultra-efficient optimised virtual machine.  MULTOS applications are already renowned as the most efficient, using significantly less memory to achieve like-for-like functionality compared to other platforms.  The new P20 product takes this a step further, improving on this industry-leading advantage, reducing the application code space by up to 25%.  This allows us to offer standard products that are packed with more applications in a single configuration.
  • Seamless Transition possible for some supported applications, to make the migration from SC4 P12 easy.  Some applications are even perso and data-preparation compatible between P12 to P20, meaning that it is possible to have a totally seamless transition between products. 
  • Fast perso, to ensure the bureau operations can run as efficiently as possible
  • Latest security counter measures and long product certification life  

The SC4-P20 series has been designed for the newest member of the Infineon SLE77 security controller chip range, and is available now for mass deployments.
