The CY8CMBR2016 matrix keypad solution provides the Ezetap MPOS device with a durable user interface, helping it to pass all of the stringent EMVCo and Payment Card Industry (PCI) global certifications required for PIN entry devices. Ezetap Chairman
Consumer electronics and home appliances have rapidly been transitioning from mechanical buttons to capacitive touch controls. However, the payments industry has been slow to move from traditional, expensive mechanical keypads-which are made secure through additional physical and logical barriers around the keypad-given the tight security required when customers enter their debit or credit card PIN. The EMV and PCI certifications are extremely strict due to the need to protect customer PINs against a broad range of attacks, while ensuring compatibility across a range of payment cards.

With the reliable, easy-to-use CapSense Express Mechanical Button Replacement (MBR) solution, Ezetap was able to go from concept, to certification, to manufacturing in less than a year.
