General Specifications
   Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Contact       An independent card reader must read the chip. This is supported by ISO 7816 contact. 
   Contactless       The chip does not require a card reader to operate, but rather uses radio frequency signals. This is supported by ISO 14443A Contactless. 
   Combi Chip       Combi cards are plastic cards with a central processing unit (CPU), chip operating system (COS), security module and memory embedded in the surface as an IC chip. They incorporate both contact and contactless functions. A single card can serve as an ID, be used in place of cash, and pay for public transportation among many other applications. In short, users only have to carry one card. Since these contactless cards do not require a reader, they are composed of a serial interface for the computer and an antenna to connect to the card. Readers for contactless smart cards may or may not have a slot, as some smart cards can be read when within 1.5 meters of the reader, while others need to be positioned a few millimeters from the reader to be read accurately.

   Interface       
   Your choices are...         
   USB       Universal serial bus (USB) is an external bus standard that supports data transfer rates of 12 Mbps. A single USB port can be used to connect up to 127 peripheral devices, such as mice, modems, and keyboards. USB also supports Plug-and-Play installation and hot plugging
   PCMCIA       Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA) is an organization consisting of some 500 companies that has developed the standards for small, credit card-sized devices called PC cards. Originally designed for adding memory to portable computers, PCMCIA standards have been expanded several times and are now suitable for many types of devices. There are in fact three types of PCMCIA cards. All three have the same rectangular size (85.6 by 54 millimeters), but different widths: Type I cards can be up to 3.3 mm thick, and are used primarily for adding additional ROM or RAM to a computer; Type II cards can be up to 5.5 mm thick. These cards are often used for modem and fax modem cards. Type III cards can be up to 10.5 mm. 
   Serial       General serial interface (UART, and other). 
   I2C       Inter-IC (I2C) is a bus designed by Philips Semiconductors in the early 1980s, which is used to connect integrated circuits (ICs). I2C is a multi-master bus, which means that multiple chips can be connected to the same bus and each one can act as a master by initiating a data transfer.

   Microprocessor Architecture      Microprocessor units (MPU) execute programmed instructions. Typically, older version smart cards are based on relatively slow, 8-bit embedded microcontrollers.  The trend since the 1990s has been toward using customized controllers with a 32-bit reduced instruction set computing (RISC) processor running at 25 to 32 MHz.

   Application Memory (Flash / EEPROM)       Electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) and Flash are generally referred to as application memory. EEPROM can be erased electronically and rewritten.  By international standards, this memory should retain data for up to 10 years without electrical power and should support at least 10,000 read-write actions during the life of the card.  Application memory is used by an executing application to store information on the card.

   Internal ROM (Mask)       Read only memory (ROM) or program memory are instructions permanently burned into memory by the chip manufacturer.  These instructions (such as when the power supply is activated and the program that manages the password) are the fundamentals of the chip operating system (COS), or as often called, the “Mask.”

Package Characteristics
   IC Package Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Bare Die       The device is sold in semiconductor die form. It does not have a case or packaging. 
   PBGA       Plastic ball-grid array (PBGA) is the general terminology for the BGA package adopting plastic (epoxy molding compound) as the encapsulation. According to JEDEC standard, PBGA refers to an overall thickness of over 1.7mm. 
   TBGA       Tape ball-grid array (TBGA) uses a fine, polyimide substrate and provides good thermal performance with high pin counts. 
   SBGA       Super ball-grid array (SBGA) provides a high-power BGA package with a very low profile. With SBGA, the IC is directly attached to an integrated copper heatsink. Since the IC and I/O are on the same side, signal vias are eliminated, providing a significant improvement in electrical performance (inductance). 
   FLGA       Fine-pitch land-grid array (FLGA) is extremely compact and lightweight, making it suitable for miniature disc drives and digital cameras. 
   QFP       Quad flat packages (QFP) contain a large number of fine, flexible, gull wing shaped leads. Lead width can be as small as 0.16 mm. Lead pitch is 0.4 mm. QFPs provide good second-level reliability and are used in processors, controllers, ASICs, DSPs, gate arrays, logic, memory ICs, PC chipsets, and other applications.

Features
   DES Key Encryption       Data Encryption Standard (DES) is a popular symmetric-key encryption method developed in 1975 and standardized by ANSI in 1981 as ANSI X.3.92.  DES uses a 56-bit key and uses the block cipher method, which breaks text into 64-bit blocks and then encrypts them. A type of encryption where the same key is used to encrypt and decrypt the message. This differs from asymmetric (or public-key) encryption, which uses one key to encrypt a message and another to decrypt the message. Symmetric-key encryption is an encryption system in which the sender and receiver of a message share a single, common key that is used to encrypt and decrypt the message. Contrast this with public-key cryptology, which utilizes two keys - a public key to encrypt messages and a private key to decrypt them. Symmetric-key systems are simpler and faster, but their main drawback is that the two parties must somehow exchange the key in a secure way. Public-key encryption avoids this problem because the public key can be distributed in a non-secure way, and the private key is never transmitted.
