Samsung Electronics has announced its new system-in-package (SIP) near field communications (NFC) chip, the SENHRN1. The new Secu-NFC chip combines a NFC controller and a secure element storing personal information and security keys with advanced encryption technologies, a prerequisite for reliable and efficient mobile payment on NFC-enabled mobile devices.

The new solution is based on Samsung's proven in-house expertise and experience in smartcard ICs, which involves advanced RF sensitivity features and enhanced data encryption technologies, and its wealth of package technology, utilizing advanced SIP technology.

Samsung's Secu-NFC chip, packaged as a SIP, has identical form factor measurements (4.3x4.3x1.0mm) as a standalone NFC chip. This raises the area space efficiencies on mobile devices. The pin-to-pin compatibility also allows mobile device's designers to immediately adopt the new solution without additional cost, engineering and design efforts.

The embedded secure element has a 760KB high-density flash memory providing users with sufficient capacity to store one's choice of diverse mobile services such as credit card codes, e-money, transportation transaction/payment services and more.

Samsung's Secu-NFC chip, the SENHRN1 is currently sampling to customers.
