STMicroelectronics and Aspects Software Ltd have signed a license agreement to provide a system solution for a Java Card technology based GSM SIM that is expected to decrease development time and speed time-to-market for card manufacturers and network operators.

The terms of the agreement will enable the combination of the ST19WG34 secure microcontroller in ST's 0.185m EEPROM technology, with Aspects OS755 GlobalPlatform compliant Java Card OS with integrated GSM Phase 2+ Release 1999 SIM applet. The solution will also provide a migration path to 3G Universal SIM technology.

The solution also allows the development of SIM toolkit applets with Aspects tools, while maintaining the freedom of integrating third-party application developments.

"By coupling Aspects' technology with the ST19WG34, we will provide a ready-to-use JavaCard solution for GSM Phase 2+ SIMs that will serve the growing customer base that want to add an advanced SIM product to their portfolio in a time and cost effective manner," said Alain Jarre, director of the mobile business unit within ST's Smartcard division.
