Trüb unveils thinnest ever datapage for passports

Trub datapage imageSwitzerland's Trüb group has launched a new e-datapage for use in passports and other identity documents that it says is the thinnest in the word at just 600 micrometres.

The polycarbonate datapage has an integrated chip module - with the contactless chip module and copper wire antenna integrated into the card body - and is significantly thinner than the 900 micrometre specifications laid out by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

The chip stores the personal data, a facial image and two fingerprints of the document holder.

"Passport booklets with the novel datapage 600e feature improved performance regarding handling and material flexibility," said Trüb in a statement, adding that it also provides better mechanical protection of the electronic components.

The new datapage will be presented at the forthcoming Cartes & Identification exhibition in Paris from 6 to 8 November.

- Meanwhile, Trüb has extended its contract to supply e-datapages to the Republic of Lithuania, which started in 2008 with the aim of improving the reliability of document holder identification and fighting counterfeiting. The Swiss company supplies security document technologies to more than 30 countries around the world.
