Title
(EN) IMPROVEMENTS IN OR RELATING TO SMART CARDS
(FR) AMELIORATIONS APPORTEES A DES CARTES A MICROPROCESSEUR OU EN RELATION AVEC CELLES-CI
Abstract
(EN)
A pouch system for smart cards, wherein said pouch system is provided with electrical contacts for connection with electrical contacts of an inserted smart card, thereby changing in use the capacity of the inserted card to receive and/or transmit external signals. A smart card comprising semi-conductor circuitry including a memory section is also disclosed. The semi-conductor circuitry is connected to contact pads formed on the surface of the card.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un système de pochette pour cartes à microprocesseur, ce système étant pourvu de contacts électriques destinés à se connecter aux contacts électriques d'une carte à microprocesseur insérée dans la pochette, grâce à quoi, en cours d'utilisation, l'aptitude de la carte insérée à recevoir et/ou à envoyer des signaux extérieurs est modifiée. Cette invention concerne également une carte à microprocesseur comportant des circuits à semi-conducteurs incluant une zone mémoire. Les circuits à semi-conducteurs sont connectés à des plages de contact constituées à la surface de la carte.
