Intel Corp. has signed a deal with Inside Secure that will enable Intel’s Mobile Wireless Group to develop new NFC-enabled solutions based on Inside’s MicroRead, SecuRead and Open NFC products.
“We are very excited to have this opportunity to work alongside Intel in the development of scalable NFC solutions for the industry,” said Charles Walton, chief operating officer for INSIDE Secure. “Working with an industry leader like Intel will play a significant role in the mainstream rollout of NFC.”
The announcement follows Intel’s recent promotion to sponsor member of the NFC Forum, as well’s as an announcement last month that the company will work with MasterCard to put PayPass technology in PCs and laptops.
Now with Inside Secure, Intel will be able to leverage the company’s MicroRead NFC controller and the SecuRead NFC solution, which integrates the MicroRead controller with a secure element and a GlobalPlatform-Java Card operating system. Both products are integrated with INSIDE’s Open NFC protocol stack.
