Abstract

· Disclosed is a method for the card reader to communicate with the IC card with low power and to shorten its processing time. Parts around the card reader are composed of the insulating material to transmit an electromagnetic wave to the IC card efficiently. The antenna of the card reader is arranged over and under the card to transmit an electromagnetic wave to the IC card efficiently. At this time, alternating magnetic fierds of these antennas are generated in same phase. (Fig.1) IC card can be communicated with card reader during feed by the shape of antenna to fit the shape of feed path because of the communication distance to be expanded. (Fig.2) Independent read process of magnetic stripe data, emboss data, IC data are to shorten total processing time. This method provides concurrentry processing of different data types in one back-and-forth card feed motion. (Fig.3) 1 2
