As time-to-market is crucial to the success in today’s highly competitive market place, this chip is ideal for the SIM segment. OTP, One-Time-Program, used as ROM to store OS, is a highly secured way and alternative means to expensive ROM.
OS developers can now load COS during the last minute. Dead inventory of chip cards with outdated and mistakably Mask ROM can now avoided. The concern of OS codes being tampered or misused during transit for ROM masking can be addressed as the OS developers can download the OS to the OTP-ROM in-house at their convenience.
