ASK CPL108 Helps Portugal "Clean Mobility" with Electric Cars

ASK contactless coupler in 1500 mobi.e EV charging points

Sophia-Antipolis: ASK, a leading manufacturer of contactless products, has been selected to supply CPL108 contactless couplers, to be integrated into all recharging points of the MOBI.E Portuguese initiative.

At the end of December 2010, the government of Portugal has signed an agreement for the implementation of the MOBI.E, a nationwide Electrical Vehicle charging network. Portugal is the first country in the world to implement such a network. Available throughout the country, accessible to all users and compatible with all manufacturers of electric vehicles, the MOBI.E network is the first step for these vehicles to be widely adopted in Portugal.

The systems architecture and development of the integrated high-level management platform was implemented by Novabase, the leading Portuguese company in IT business solutions and ASK's long term customer.

Manuel Relvas, Executive Director at Novabase, says "I'm really proud to be part of the technology providers of the MOBI.E project. Portugal has always been one of the main drivers of contactless technology in Europe and so has ASK. We have worked with ASK for over 10 years now with their full range of standard or customized products and this partnership helped us and the country to enter the era of contactless."

CPL108 is a small size multipurpose contactless coupler based on ASK contactless module UCM108. It complies with the latest standards including ISO14443 A/B/B', Felica®, ISO18092 (NFC), Mifare(TM) and Mifare Plus(TM).
