About Smart Card A smart card is a pocket-sized plastic card embedded with ICs, which are also called microchips. These are used for security purposes for authentication, identification, data storage, and application processing. Smart cards are used in some of the major sectors such as the BFSI, Government, Transportation, Healthcare, and Defense. They are classified into two types: contact-based and contactless. Contact-based smart cards have a contact area of about 1 sq. cm and are inserted into a smart card reader for usage. On the other hand, contactless smart cards employ an RF between the card and the reader and need no physical insertion, thus being more user-friendly than contact-based smart cards.
