Peter Bergstrom, the CEO and CTO of CIVINTEC Europe, will introduce CIVINTEC company technical service and CRYSTAL new smart card reader and terminals at TRUSTECH 2016 in Cannes. CIVINTEC company strategy CIVINTEC have over 10 years’ experience in the development and manufacturing of smart card-related products. CIVINTEC’s company strategy; to provide more than just standard, good-quality products with customising and modification; has been an ambition for a couple of years now. The result of this ambition is the technical service concept based on CIVINTEC’s unique technical platform which includes both hardware design and embedded software design. CIVINTEC technical service The technical service is a concept made to provide cost-effective market customisations. CIVINTEC’s ambition is to be able to provide different levels of customisation for clients. The technical service provided can include a brand logo on a CIVINTEC standard product, or even a unique client product design. The process takes the customer’s future product all the way from idea to a manufactured product. All software components are independent which make it easy to design products with different ranges of functions and features included The technical platform is very carefully made to provide the highest level of product performance and quality and includes electronic hardware design, embedded firmware software and SDK command library. All software components are independent which make it easy to design products with different ranges of functions and features included. The technical platform supports almost all standardised chip technologies and communication interfaces. Together with additional technologies like NFC, BLE and biometrics, CIVINTEC have created a platform that covers the majority of customers’ requirements. CIVINTEC Crystal reader and uTouch terminal CIVINTECE has designed a concept reader called Crystal, which is based on the technical platform. The aim for the Crystal reader is to provide something new; for example, CIVINTEC designed a version of the reader with a touch screen display that replaced the mechanical keypad and the traditional LEDs. The Crystal reader supports a combination of different technologies such as RF 13,56MHz, 125kHz, NFC and BLE in the same design. The Crystal reader range will be available as a standard product, but will also be available for customisation. The popular smart terminal uTouch is also an outcome of the CIVINTEC technical platform. The uTouch terminal combines RF, NFC, BLE and traditional interfaces alongside wi-fi and 3G. Biometric is also available as an additional choice.
CIVINTEC’s strategy has always been to provide quality products and technical services to the security industry, based on the highest level of knowledge.
