About the IS24C16A Smart Card

Smart cards are used in a variety of applications ranging from telecommunications to personal finance. The IS24C02A smart card is 256 bytes of EEPROM memory. The pins of the IS24C16A are accessible through the gold plated contact pads embedded in the card, and when paired with the ST-00019 Smart Card Reader can be connected to the IO pins of a microcontroller.

Connection Diagram

In order to interface with the smart card, a smart card reader must be used. The diagram below demonstrates how to connect the Smart Card Reader (#32320) from Parallax to your microcontroller for use with the example programs included on the IS24C02A product page. When inserting the smart card into the reader, be sure the gold contact pads are facing down.
