Matsushita Electric Ind. Co. Ltd has announced the development of a SoC for embedded use on non-contact smartcards based on the Java Card platform developed by Sun Microsystems.

Designed using a 0.25?m CMOS four-metal process, the MN103S41H has a 32-bit RISC microcontroller and integrates a non-contact analog communications circuit with an ISO/IEC14443 B radio interface, an RSA and elliptic curve encryption coprocessor, and 32KB of non-volatile EEPROM.

The chip is capable of transferring data at up to 212Kbps and operates from a 2.5V source while consuming 10mW. It complies with the e-government Basic Resident Register card standard established by the Japanese government.
