Contact module

Contact modules are used to embed the integrated circuit into the smart card and to enable a physical connection between the card and the mobile phone or reader. Contact modules are typically used in Banking, Telecom and Government applications. They are, for instance, also used in other smart card applications like public transport and loyalty cards. Contact modules have to meet the highest requirements in terms of reliability, functionality and visual appearance.
