Linxens' History

A legacy of expansion through Innovation

Inception and Innovation:

Linxens' remarkable journey began in the 1980s, born from the ingenuity of three visionary engineers. Inspired by cinema projection technology, they invented the flexible etched circuit for the first commercial smartcard, a breakthrough innovation that catalyzed Linxens' emergence as a leader in the smart card connector industry. This marked the beginning of a journey filled with technological, industrial, and human milestones that have profoundly impacted our daily lives.

Throughout the years, Linxens has been at the forefront of technological advancements, shaping the way we pay, communicate, identify, and access. Our innovations have set global standards and have led the change in the smartcard industry with pioneering developments: We created the world's first phonecard in 1983, and later introduced the market-leading dual-interface card. Our contributions include the GSM card, NFC, EVC Prelam, and the biometric card, each a testament to our commitment to innovation and excellence.
