Multi-application smart cards have yet to realise their enormous potential, partly because few people understand the technology, market, and behavioural issues involved. Here, Mike Hendry sets out to fill this knowledge gap with a comprehensive and accessible guide. Following a review of the state-of-the-art in smart card technology, the book describes the business requirements of each smart-card-using sector, and the systems required to support multiple applications. Implementation aspects, including security, are treated in detail and numerous international case studies cover identity, telecoms, banking and transportation applications. Lessons are drawn from these studies to help deliver more successful projects in the future. Invaluable for users and integrators specifying, evaluating and integrating multi-application systems, the book will also be useful to terminal, card and system designers; network, IT and security managers; and software specialists.
This is an overview of recording principles, materials aspects, and applications of rewritable optical storage. Elements of data recording, including mark formation, eraseability, direct overwrite strategies, data quality and data stability are explained and extensively discussed. Throughout the book, a mark formation model is described and used to back-up measurement results and support the discussed applications. High-speed and dual-layer recording are analyzed in depth, with proposals to achieve higher performance.

This book takes the reader through the actual manufacturing process of making a typical chip, from start to finish, including a detailed discussion of each step, in plain language. The evolution of today's technology is added to the story, as seen through the eyes of the engineers who solved some of the problems. The authors are well suited to that discussion since they are three of those same engineers. They have a broad exposure to the industry and its technology that extends all the way back to Shockley Laboratories, the first semiconductor manufacturer in Silicon Valley. The CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) process flow is the focus of the discussion and is covered in ten chapters. The vast majority of chips made today are fabricated using this general method. In order to ensure that all readers are comfortable with the vocabulary, the first chapter carefully and clearly introduces the science concepts found in later chapters. A chapter is devoted to pointing out the differences in other manufacturing methods, such as the gallium arsenide technology that produces chips for cell phones. In addition, a chapter describing the nature of the semiconductor industry from a business perspective is included. The entire process of making a chip is surprisingly easy to understand. The part of the story that defies belief is the tiny dimensions: the conducting wires and other structures on a chip are more than a hundred times thinner than a hair - and getting thinner with every new chip design.
