Why Imaging (RFID) Smart Credit Card?
  • The credit and identification card authentication relies on the static information stored in a magnetic stripe, embossed letter, signature, security code, holographic image, and photo of the card
    • Current authentication implementation relies on the identification card medium which is subject to loss and misuse.
  • The card cannot actively identify the card holder as the legitimate owner efficiently, since the card does not have any intelligence.
    • All the static information stored in the credit card (and other types of cards) is vulnerable to manipulation and duplication.
Why e4Tech Hub Credit Card Technology?
  • The credit card owner can be actively identified by adding biometric fingerprint information during the verification process. When a card is swiped by the user, the imaging sensor captures user fingerprints and transfers the corresponding image data to a verification system to match and track user fingerprint information. The fingerprint image is taken through the image sensor and integrated into the card’s customary user holding area.
  • The fingerprint image sensor comprises a flexible stripe sensor array for capturing analog fingerprint image, and the sensor array comprises a series of sensor elements arranged in a column-row format.
  • No card user behavior change or an additional action is needed for using this card. No physical changes to the card.
Competition: Dynamics
  • Products

a. Hidden: Part of card number is displayed when user puts PIN number

b. Multi-account: Choose which account number to use with magnetic manipulation

Why Our Technology is better over the Dynamics? (Main differences with our technology)
  • Battery
    • They must use battery for operation. Our technology relies on the external solar cell technology.
  • RFID, Backlight
    • Relying on battery for a credit card is not simple for many reasons.
  • Magnetic Stripe
    • Our technology does not rely on the actual magnetic tape. (We don’t need to swipe the card. We can make the reader to scan even when the card is held steady.) They program the magnetic tape first before use in short moment.
  • Display
    • Dynamic uses LED-like digit panel, which is not necessarily flexible to great extent, also uses active power. Our display is a passive device and requires not much power, and it is flexible.
  • Biometric Information
    • Activation when someone uses card, and we authenticate user by using biometrics.
      They don’t have this feature.
  • Data Loss
    • Protected from the financial data lost.
  • Future Technology
    • Our technology covers all mobile devices including the smart phone.
Status
  • Patents: 27 patents are issued
