Title
(EN) SMART CARD AND READER/WRITER
(FR) CARTE A PUCE ET UN DISPOSITIF DE LECTURE/ECRITURE
Abstract
(EN)
A smart card (101) comprising: a sheet of supporting material (102); and electrical contact means (103) provided on said sheet of supporting material and adapted to provide an electrical contact with a smart card reader in use; one or more integrated circuits supported by said sheet; and interface means comprising a first serial data interface (104) and at least one second data interface (105) which may be serial or parallel arranged such that in use, data stored in said integrated circuits may be accessed via said parallel data interface. Relatively large amounts of data are stored on an improved smart card and by using two data interfaces data is communicated to and from the improved smart card quickly. A reader/writer for use with the improved smart card is described. An adaptor card may be inserted into the reader/writer to enable a host device in which the reader/writer is incorporated to be connected to other devices.

L'invention concerne une carte (101) à puce comprenant : une feuille d'un matériau (102) de support ; un élément (103) de contact électrique, disposé sur ladite feuille de matériau de support, conçu pour permettre le contact électrique avec un lecteur de carte à puce lors de l'utilisation ; un ou plusieurs circuits intégrés reposant sur la feuille ; et des organes d'interface comprenant une première interface (104) de données série et au moins une seconde interface (105) de données, série ou parallèle, disposés de sorte que, lors de l'utilisation, les données mémorisées dans les circuits intégrés soient accessibles via l'interface de données parallèle. Cette carte à puce améliorée permet de mémoriser des quantités relativement grandes de données, et d'échanger rapidement ces données grâce aux deux interfaces de données. L'invention concerne également un dispositif de lecture/écriture destiné à être utilisé avec la carte à puce améliorée. Une carte adaptateur peut être insérée dans le dispositif de lecture/écriture de manière à permettre à la connexion d'un dispositif hôte intégré dans le dispositif de lecture/écriture avec d'autres dispositifs.
