Smartcard Interfaces

ST offers complete analog interfaces for asynchronous 1.8 V, 3 V and 5 V smartcards. They can be placed between the card and the microcontroller with only a few external components to perform all supply protection and control functions. Main targeted applications are smartcard readers for set-top boxes, IC card readers for banking, identification and pay TV.

They comply with several standards including ISO 7816, EMV and GSM, and are also certified by NDS for STBs.
