Zwipe and Infineon Extend Their Partnership

July 2, 2019 Alix Paultre

Zwipe and Infineon Technologies have extended their partnership through a long-term agreement, which outlines both technical and commercial collaboration to co-define and develop advanced system-on-chip solutions and related card system designs. Intended to enable the mass deployment of biometric smart devices, including payment cards and wearables, the effort is concentrating on so called “Tap and go payments” with biometric cards. They can significantly improve the user experience without compromising on security while meeting the strong customer authentication (SCA) requirements demanded by the second Payment Service Directive (PSD2) in Europe.

Commenting on this partnership, André Løvestam, CEO of Zwipe, said, “We are proud to strengthen our long-standing partnership with a global technology leader such as Infineon. This collaboration further enhances our ability to commercialize our technology and IP through competitive solutions for mass-volume deployment.” Bjoern Scharfen, Head of Payment & Wearables at Infineon added, “Our collaboration and joint offering with Zwipe is a key accelerator of mass deployment in the biometric payment market.”
