In line with the new agreement, HID intends to develop smart card reader products and component level solutions based on INSIDEâ€™s PicoRead technology platform, as well as provide the PicoRead module to original equipment manufacturers, systems integrators and application providers as part of their iClass development partner program. This long-term, exclusive agreement provides HID with world class core contactless chip and reader technology, while providing INSIDE with the advantages of HIDâ€™s market position and distribution channels in the access control market.
HID and INSIDE Expand Partnership
INSIDE Contactless, France, has selected HID Corp., Irvine, Calif., as the companyâ€™s exclusive partner in the access control market. The development builds on a successful four-year history of the two companies working together, during which INSIDE has delivered nearly 10 million chips based on its PicoPass contactless chip technology for use within HIDâ€™s iClass 13.56 MHz contactless smart cards.
