ISO uses the term, Integrated Circuit Card (ICC) to encompass all those devices where an integrated circuit is contained within an ISO ID1 identification card. Identification cards — Integrated circuit(s) cards with contacts — Part 1: Physical characteristics. ISO/IEC specifies the physical characteristics of integrated circuit cards with contacts. It applies to identification cards of the ID-1 card type, which.

According to its abstract, it specifies a card application. Area 1 is for the number identifying both the card issuer and the card holder.

This device often consists of a movable carriage that positions the card under the connector head while applying the necessary wiping and pressure action.

The 8716-1 French cards put the IC module further off the longitudinal ieo of the card than the standard eventually agreed by Iao. One may be tempted to ask why these strange frequencies were chosen, why not just a straight 5 MHZ. According to its abstract, it specifies the operating conditions of an integrated circuit card that provides a USB interface. Created inupdated inupdated in Registration of application providers”. More particularly the slot for a card may include an extra indentation for the embossed area of the card.

The transmission of a single character defined as 8 bits requires an overhead of several bits as follows: Part 4 Location of magnetic read only tracks – tracks 1 and 2. The ISO standard defines a single line for the interchange of data between the IC and the interface device.

ISO/IEC 7816

There are three technologies available for this process, wire bonding, flip chip processing and tape automated bonding TAB. This memory is indeed erasable by the user and can be rewritten many times between 10, and 1, in a typical implementation. Define your site main menu. The ISO standard includes specifications iwo the commands for card management.


ISO/IEC – Wikipedia

It specifies the physical characteristics, layout, recording techniques, numbering system and registration procedures. The half duplex refers only to data transmissions in one direction at a time which a PC is perfectly capable of managing with its UART. This anomaly has been a source of irritation and it is now widely agreed that the IC connector should be on the front of the card. The following list defines the main parameters that should be defined.

As the title implies, this part of the standard specifies the location of embossed characters on an ID -1 card for which two areas are assigned. This page was last edited on 19 Aprilat From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Similarly the chip must contain the communications logic is which it accepts commands from the card acceptance device CAD and through which it receives and transmits the application data.

This is an additional characteristic to the magnetic field sensor which operates off the magnetic stripe and is used to open a mechanical gate on devices such as Iwo where some vandal proofing techniques are required.

The ISO family includes eleven parts which are in a constant state of flux as they are subject to revision and update. The loaded data may contain, for example, code, keys 78166-1 applets.

It is the addition of the CPU or micro-controller that really leads to the term “Smart” although we will not be rigorous in our use of the term.

The biggest hole in the current standards work is the lack of agreement in the security domain which 78816-1 might argue is fundamental to the application platform. It defines the basic commands for reading, writing and updating of card data.


The choice of chip location has been a difficult subject due largely to the use of magnetic stripes. Mail this article Print this article. Technical Adviser to Smart Card News. The EPROM has been widely used in ios past but the name for this application is something of a misnomer.

A particular chip may have one or more of these memory types. The first part of the process is to manufacture a substrate which contains the chip. Created inupdated in Such an application may be totally implemented in the logic of the chip.

This standard defines the requirements 716-1 cards to be used in financial transactions.

The ICC is probably the security man’s dream because unlike most electronic storage and processing devices it has security intrinsically built in.

This is often called a COB Chip On Board and consists of a glass epoxy connector board on which the chip is bonded to the connectors. All of these memories described so far are non volatile. The relevant part of the ISO standard is commands. There are two commonly used clock speeds, 3. Most IC cards have a power consumption of between 10mA and 20mA at 3. The application code could be designed as part of the mask ROM code but the more modern approach is to design the application software to operate from the PROM non volatile memory.

Created inupdated inamended in More commonly the die are separated from the wafer by the use of a diamond saw.

The important point is more concerned with reliability since clearly the larger die will be more prone to mechanical fracture.
