Product Details

The Teridian Semiconductor Corporation (TSC) 73S1210F Multi-SAM Evaluation Board Lite is a platform that demonstrates the capabilities of the 73S1210F Smart Card Controller device. It has been designed to operate either as a standalone or as a development platform.

The Multi-SAM (MS) board is a special configuration that uses a single 8010C interface device to support up to five smart cards; one full size (credit card) and up to four SIM/SAM cards This multi-SIM/SAM configuration imposes usage limitations which are described in Section 4.6 of the full data sheet.

The 73S1210F Multi-SAM Evaluation Board Lite can be programmed to run any of the Teridian turnkey applications or a user-developed custom application. Teridian provides its Pseudo-CCID application preloaded on the board and an EVM testing application on the CD.

Applications can be downloaded through the In-Circuit Emulator (ICE) or through the TSC Flash Programmer Model TFP2. As a development tool, the evaluation board has been designed to operate in conjunction with an ICE to develop and debug 73S1210F based embedded applications.
