A full range of banking, ID & transport solutions

ST’s secure microcontrollers are designed for a wide range of applications including SDA & DDA banking, identification, transport and Pay TV solutions. From traditional smart cards to innovative wearable devices and biometric solutions, ST offers a complete portfolio of contact (ISO 7816), dual-interface and contactless (ISO/IEC 14443 Types A & B and ISO/IEC 18092) secure microcontrollers. With over 4 billion MCU-embedded banking smart cards sold, ST has become an experienced worlwide player in the banking industry. 

Specifically designed to support a large variety of applications, our ST31 secure microcontroller family, based on the ARM® SecurCore® SC000 processor, is tailored to reach best-in-class contactless performance for embedded security applications. Its advanced features allow ST31 secure MCUs to meet the highest security standards as defined by certifications such as Common Criteria, EMVCo and China Union Pay (CUP). This HW platform can also be provided with MIFARE® librairies. 

Find the best fit for your application among our banking, ID and transport product families which offer dedicated hardware and software solutions for each application:

  • Our STPay system-on-chip solution provides a comprehensive range of ready-to-use banking solutions, including Static Java and Dynamic Java OS-based solutions, and covering a wide range of international and domestic payment schemes such as Visa, Mastercard, CUP, Amex, Discover, JCB, CPA and many others. Specific versions of the STPay system-on-chip are compatible with the most common transportation applets based on Calypso or MIFARE®. This solution is also available in different form factors so it can be embedded in traditional cards and/or in any type of RF connected wearable device.
  • The ST31 ID secure solutions for large-scale governmental programs have been adopted by over 50 state institutions for more than 20 years, representing more than 600 million Government & ID secure ICs delivered to date. This secure microcontroller family integrates an enhanced crypto coprocessor which supports the BAC, EAC, SAC and AA security features required by ICAO standards, thus enabling very fast e-passport recognition, processing and validation. 
  • The CD21 is our transport-dedicated solution compliant with Calypso specifications and standards. The CD21 is available in dual-interface or contactless smart card ICs and can be delivered in many form factors.
