Inside Secure has introduced ComboPulse, an all-in-one solution for adding NFC card emulation and peer-to-peer functionality to a wide range of consumer electronics devices.

ComboPulse “is a drop-in, zero-tuning solution that makes it easy and inexpensive to add NFC functionality into a broad range of mainstream consumer electronic products, including tablets, entry-level mobile phones, personal media players and other smart mobile devices,” says Inside Secure.

“Combining an Inside PicoPulse NFC RF front end ‘booster’ chip, an Inside VaultSecure secure element with Java Card OS, an antenna and all passive components in a tiny DFN8 package, the ComboPulse SiP requires no additional hardware, no external antenna and no tuning to add best-in-class NFC card emulation and peer-to-peer functions to mobile products at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional NFC solutions.”

“This innovative NFC solution is the first on the market with such simple, fast integration and it offers the smallest NFC footprint in the industry,” says Loic Hamon, vice president of product management for Inside Secure’s NFC division. “The ComboPulse SiP makes it easy for OEMs to quickly and cost-effectively add this important NFC functionality into consumer electronics, entry-level phones and other devices. This will enable more people to engage in secure transactions including mobile payments, transport ticketing and access control.”

“The innovative ComboPulse design and small footprint of the ComboPulse SiP allows the choice of an optimized location in the handset (for instance at the top of the handset, close to the speaker) in order to achieve the best user experience when using it to pay or pair devices,” the company adds.
