STMicroelectronics protects and powers Ellipse’s industry-leading battery-free dynamic card-verification micromodules for payment cards

STMicroelectronics, a semiconductor maker, is supplying energy-harvesting secure microcontrollers to Ellipse World Inc (Ellipse), the fintech company, to enhance security for card payments.

The first metal cards featuring EVC technology will be offered by CompoSecure. This innovative solution is designed to elevate both the payment experience and enhance user protection, facilitated by ST’s ST31N600 chip.

Ellipse chose the ST31N600 secure microcontroller as a key component in its battery-free EVC (Ellipse Verification Code) All-In-One dynamic CVV (Card Verification Value) micromodule. More
