STMicroelectronics Smart Card Interface Evaluation Boards are based on the ST8034AT or ST8034PI Smart Card Interfaces. Each evaluation board is designed both for standalone operation or to be controlled by the microcontroller. The boards are fully configurable, provide access to all signals including supply voltage through labeled test points, and uses a standard connector for simple communication interfacing with the microcontroller block. The labeled test points on the board are in the same order as the signals in the flat interface cable. Each evaluation board addresses market segments including: POS, set-top boxes, pay TV, identification, banking and tachographs.
