Advanced Card Systems Ltd., a supplier of card and reader technologies, launched its new ACOS smart card – the ACOS3X eXpress Microprocessor Card (ACOS3X).
This new card is the fruit of ACS’s efforts in developing its Card Operating System technologies and was achieved by enhancing the security level and increasing the reading/writing speed of the cards.
The ACOS3X contains a microprocessor and is compatible with the other members of the ACOS3 product line. The ACOS3X card supports a range of applications such as loyalty program, parking registration, network access control and electronic purse.
Furthermore, ACOS3X is built with a hardware crypto-engine which shortens the processing time of crypto commands like Secure Messaging. The processing time of ACOS3X is less than a third of that of standard microprocessor cards, improving the security of various smart card applications. The card also features 256K EEPROM and the support of a maximum of 128 user files.
