Gemplus has been chosen by JCB to supply multi-application EMV microprocessors equipped with JCBs EMV application, J/Smart, to the major international credit card brand and largest card issuer in Japan. Japan currently issues more EMV cards than any other country worldwide except the UK. As part of its successful bid to supply smart cards for the next generation J/Smart, which is fully compliant with EMV 2000, Gemplus is to design a special microprocessor native DDA/CDA card. This solution is equipped with multiple applications developed by Gemplus which will enable JCB to offer EMV compliant applications with DDA/CDA functions and loyalty applications. Toppan Printing Co., a strategic alliance partner of Gemplus in Japan, will take the order from JCB and deliver the cards in accordance with the current business scheme. Gemplus will supply the microprocessor modules to Toppan Printing Co. Additionally, Toppan Printing Co. will provide the personalization services associated with the issuance of the card and, in doing this, may take advantage of Toppan Gemplus Services Ltd.s personalization bureau, which is jointly owned by Toppan and Gemplus, and is based in Tokyo.
