Product Details

The Teridian Semiconductor Corporation (TSC) 73S1215F Evaluation Board is used to demonstrate the capabilities of the 73S1215F Smart Card Controller device. It has been designed to operate either as a standalone or a development platform.

The 73S1215F Evaluation Board can be programmed to run any of the Teridian turnkey applications or a user-developed custom application. Teridian provides its USB CCID application preloaded on the board and an EMV 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 73S1215F based embedded applications.
