The Open Standard for Public Transport (OSPT) Alliance announced that austriamicrosystems has joined as a full member.
Since joining the OSPT Alliance, austriamicrosystems will have access to the CIPURSE open standard specification, leveraging its experience into embedded systems for mobile fare collection applications. The open standard promotes vendor neutrality and cross-vendor system interoperability with reduced technology adoption risks, higher quality and improved market responsiveness.
CIPURSE also offers a global basis for migrating transit fare systems to NFC-enabled mobile phones and other devices, and the standard supports the adoption of NFC transit applications for a future-proof solution.
austriamicrosystems designs, develops, and manufactures integrated circuits for a wide range of applications for consumer, industrial, medical, and automotive markets worldwide. These products include sensors and sensor interfaces, power semiconductors, and radio-frequency ICs such as integrated RFID reader solutions and near-field communication devices.
