SPS new Dual 6 small-size dual interface micromodule for all payment schemes now supports Custom Module Image (CMI™)

Smart Packaging Solutions (SPS) introduces its new eBoost PAY® Dual 6 micromodule (6 pins size) dedicated to dual interface payment applications, which supports Custom Module Image (CMI™).

 ROUSSET, FRANCE, March 6, 2017 – Smart Packaging Solutions, a world leader in dual interface banking and eID documents, introduces the latest version of its eBoost PAY® Dual 6 micromodule for dual interface banking cards that brings additional features and increased compatibility to the world of banking cards.

 This latest version supports SPS exclusive Custom Module Image feature, which consists in engraving an image specific to the issuing financial institution on the module of the card. Now, with SPS new Dual 6 micromodule, all banks can make their brand image more prominent on the module on their dual interface cards.

 SPS eBoost PAY® Dual 6 micromodule is certified by EMVCo, MasterCard and Visa as well as by most national payment schemes, making it a universal solution for financial institutions wishing to issue dual interface cards. SPS Dual 6 micromodule is compliant with Mastercard CQM, ISO 10443 and 7816 standards.

 SPS Dual 6 micromodule is the same size as a regular 6-contact micromodule, such as the ones used for contact banking cards or SIM cards. For this reason, thanks to eBoost PAY® Dual 6, card manufacturers can easily switch from contact to dual interface cards, without any need for adapting the embedding machine on their manufacturing line.

 With Dual 6 micromodule and thanks to SPS inductive coupling technology, smart card manufacturers benefit from economies of scale as they can have a general-purpose smart card manufacturing line that will produce all kind of 6-contact smart cards, bringing them the best flexibility and production chain efficiency to answer card issuers’ demands.

 Stéphane Semori, Product Manager for Banking, at SPS, declares: “The new version of eBoost PAY® Dual 6 micromodule is even more universal as it allows financial institutions to boost their brand image with their logo on the module for all dual interface cards, regardless whether they belong to an international or a national scheme. Especially in US market, the new SPS eBoost PAY® Dual 6 micromodule participates actively to a frictionless migration from 6 pins contact to 6 pins dual interface cards.”

 The new  eBoost PAY® Dual 6 micromodule is already available in either gold or silver plating, and can be customized with any bank logo.

SPS will be exhibiting on booth 41, at Seamless South Africa, March 14-15, 2017 in Cape Town, South Africa.
