KONA I, a provider of smart cards and payment solutions, and Linxens, a designer and manufacturer of microconnectors for smart cards and RFID antennas and inlays, have signed a strategic cooperation agreement. Through the agreement, the two companies hope to respond to the growing smart-card and secure-identity markets.
