This is the only Philips card with CP8 design. The aluminium round module is the similar size to the FIRST Philips module based on CP8 Technology. Around this time, the French Ministry have directed a collaboration of technology between Philips, and Honeywell Bull to use the BULL CP8 configuration for the proposed National Bank Smartcard scheme.
From 1985-1986, Philips began using various contact designs, mostly circular, and using the single microprocessor. Both Philips and Bull were the dominant producers of Bank cards after National rollout in 1987 onwards.
