Contactless smart cards differ from contact, because the chip is not visible on the card. Instead the chip and chip’s antenna are embedded within the card body. The smart card is waved over an NFC/RFID reader instead of inserted like a contact card. When the contactless smart card passes through the specifically tuned RFID field, the antenna powers up the chip and relays the chips information to the application. Contactless cards can be secure memory (CryptoMemory, MIFARE, ect), Proximity (Prox) or microprocessor smart cards such as a Java Card.
