Founded in 1993, Castles Technology is a Taiwan-based technology provider of contact and contactless payment solutions. It has expanded rapidly in recent years, establishing offices in Italy, Japan, Singapore and Spain, and opening U.S. headquarters in Atlanta in 2015. In addition to its POS terminals, the company manufactures a range of payment devices, including contactless readers, smart card readers, PIN pads, mobile POS devices, and kiosks and modules for the self-attended POS market.

Castle Technology Co. Ltd

The company recently introduced the MP200, the latest addition to its product family. Designed to meet growing demand for flexible mobile devices that function both as peripherals and standalone payment devices, the MP200 supports Android, iOS and Windows operating systems and an array of payment schemes, communications protocols and connectivity options, the company stated.

"The Castles Technology MP200 is a perfect device at a perfect time, when a lot of developers need to have an EMV solution to integrate into their payment systems," said Dave Cunningham, Senior Vice President Sales, U.S. West for Castles.

The portable, handheld device can process mag stripe, contact and contactless payment card transactions and is equipped with multiple communications options, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, micro-USB and GPRS 3G. Its ergonomic design, with backlit keypad and small footprint, makes the unit broadly adaptable within fixed and mobile POS environments as well as small, midsize and enterprise-scale merchant settings, according to company representatives.

Castles noted that the MP200 includes the following additional features and benefits:

Castles emphasized that its MP200 is a multifunctional, universally compatible, handheld device that lends itself to an expanding array of PC-based, mobile, Windows, Android and iOS business environments and applications. The product has a direct-to-host connection with First Data Corp. and can work with any gateway. Castles' help centers provide continuous online and call center support.
