eSIM chip provides flexibility for mobile consumer designs
Infineon Technologies’ latest embedded SIM (eSIM) solution has been designed specifically for mobile consumer devices.

Embedded SIMs are on the rise as they provide better design options for device manufacturers  and meet increasing consumer demand for more flexibility. They allow, for instance, users to switch mobile network providers on the go and to access a multitude of customer-centric services from different carriers. Furthermore, looking at the security performance, SIM-based cellular connectivity is generally more resistant against security breaches than typical wireless network connections as it provides end-to-end encryption and secured key exchange. The new chip has a footprint of just 7.4mm² and eliminates the need for a separate SIM slot. It enables OEMs simplified logistics and global distribution thanks to a single stock keeping unit. The eSIM will be available in sample quantities from mid-2019 onwards.
