The progressiveness of contactless smart cards when compared with standard samples of the contact is not in doubt.
But it is not always possible technical trade organizations, companies and banking institutions allow you to completely switch to contactless plastic cards service.
So widespread were combined cards, which have successfully combined embedded chip and magnetic stripe.
This card allows its holder to work successfully with several types of readers.
Calculation of the combined credit card can be conducted in the usual ATM or through a special reader. The peculiarity of the calculation of an ATM is that the magnetic strip has a low level of protection against forgery, and this card is not immune to counterfeiting or illegal copying set by the reader. But in this case, the tool performs security microchip. Cash machine automatically detects the card and requires a combined insert the card into the slot for the chip, copy or counterfeit chip is virtually impossible.
The cost of banking cards and a combined standard has virtually no differences, and a list of its features are much broader. If desired, the manufacturer also equip a combined map with additional elements of personalization.
