  • What Is The Difference Between A Smart Card And A Magnetic Stripe Card?

Magnetic stripe cards can store information through changes in the magnetic field of the magnetic stripe on the card, while Smart IC cards can store data and information through an electrically erasable programmable read-only memory integrated circuit chip (EEPROM) embedded in the card.
  • Therefore, compared with magnetic cards, IC cards have the following advantages:

1.Large storage capacity.

The storage capacity of a magnetic stripe card is about 200 numeric characters;

The storage capacity of an IC card varies depending on the model, from a few hundred characters to a large one million characters.

2. Good security and confidentiality.

The information on the IC card can be read, modified, and erased at will, but all require a password.

3.The CPU card has data processing capability.

When exchanging data with the card reader, the data can be encrypted and decrypted to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the exchanged data;

The magnetic stripe card does not have this function.

4.Long service life. Relatively safe.

The price is higher than the magnetic stripe card.
