Infineon Technologies is Samsung's supplier of embedded Secure Element (eSE) chip for its latest line of premium smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
Infineon's SLE 97 is a SOLID FLASH-based eSE chip that can safeguard not only the functionalities of the mobile device, but also transactions where the user's sensitive data, such as payment credentials, are concerned.
"Our embedded Secure Element chips can protect the device as well as user data and are therefore essential for a seamless and secure customer experience in an increasingly connected world," said Stefan Hofschen, president of the chip card and security segment of Infineon Technologies.
