Sony Global - Technology - FeliCa

Sony Global - Technology - FeliCa | Mobile Loyalty | Scoop.it

The name "FeliCa" is used generically to refer to the contactless IC card technology developed by Sony. Each credit card-sized card contains an IC chip and antenna, which allow authorization and data reading and writing whenever the card is within range of a reader/writer. These devices offer excellent security and high-speed processing and have been used for applications ranging from Japan's Suica and PASMO public transportation payment systems, to the Edy e-money system, as well as credit cards, reward point cards and ID cards. Uses for this technology continue to expand. For example, FeliCa IC chips are now even used in mobile phone "wallets."
