Despite the continuous growth of electronic payments, the share of transactions made with cash is still significant. Banking automation tools facilitate the management of this massive amount of cash, either in the form of coins or banknotes. Banking automation serves two main purposes:
- Verify authenticity: coin and bill validators are used either at the counter or in automated vending machines
- High-speed counting of cash at “cash logistics” centers for both coins and banknotes
The STM32 microcontroller performance series, complemented by wide range of analog interfaces, ensure a high-performance and efficient implementation of coin and bill validators.
