INSIDE Contactless has released HandIT-2G, the new generation of a plug and play advanced compact Flash type I contactless module.The HandIT-2G has been designed to operate with any laptops and PDAs running with Microsoft Window 98/XP/Me/Pocket PC 2002/2003. The new module is compatible with CF card slot types I and II enabling communication with INSIDE?s contactless chips: PicoPass, PicoTag as well as other contactless chips. In addition to those features, the HandIT-2G is able to communicate with any INSIDEs couplers, as well as other RF readers. In a reader to reader mode, also known as the Near Field Communication (NFC) , the HandIT-2G acts as a transponder, enabling the transfer of stored data to any other PDA or laptop through an RF interface. There is no need to download additional drivers to operate a PDA as a secure contactless reader. The HandIT-2G is compliant with the ISO 14443A/B and 15963 standards and can therefore communicate with the appropriate chips in addition to FeliCas. The HandIT 2G provides a state of-the-art security, including secret key management and cryptographic calculations that enable secure authentication and communication with a contactless transponder. A slot for a SAM module (SIM format) is integrated in the coupler to support the external security management. The HandIT-2G has been designed to be used in a smart card and RFID environment such as Passport and visa verification, transport ticket verification, data collection, RFID tags reading/writing, counterfeiting protection and prepaid applications.
