High-Performance active Smart-Card with inductive charging

Objective

A rechargeable high performance smart-card battery has to be developed.
The smart-card battery can be recharged inductively.
Both, battery and Smart-Card will be one unit during the production process.
The smart-card battery is integral part of the electrical circuit within the electronics of the card.
Test of a fully integrated smart-card battery.

Work description:
A compound material for smart cards with battery has to be developed by coupling techniques such as milling, gluing, drilling and coating. This will form a prefabricated part, which combines the battery casing and the electric circuit in a single part.
Furthermore, a rechargeable battery system has to be adopted to the demands of the smart card including that all specifications as well as the security aspects of the card with respect to the intended operation will be considered.
A special combining process such as the riveting-technology has to be modified in order to ensure the sealing of the smart card with smart card battery and electronics.
The rechargeable smart card has to be tested inductively.
The feasibility of the project will be demonstrated with simplified test samples.

Milestones:
Commitment of measures concerning the geometry of the card, materials selection and combination, test of several techniques to combine, development of partial process steps, specification of machinery, test of partial process steps, test of developed compound material parts as battery casing, text of inductive recharge ability.
