Embedded industry-leading ARM Cortex™-M3 processor
The full featured processor delivers exceptional system response to smartcard events and enables no compromise for applications requiring low power and excellent computational performance. The processor provides a rich connectivity, is highly configurable and delivers richer features.
This state of the art reader provides you almost unlimited possibilities. The pure USB reader enables full RS232 communication over USB. It is not only ISO7816 compatible but IS 100% ISO7816. The integrated USB to Serial converter enables the SmartReader Plus to work with all standard Phoenix compatible Linux and Windows applications.
Existing 3rd party software can be used through the Com Port, although connected through USB. Currently 3rd party software requires a Phoenix/Smartmouse compatible reader through a Serial/COMport.
The fullspeed USB 2.0 (USB 1.1 compliant) interface and powerfull CPU ensures the fastest communication possible. The high-end design of the reader is very firm and of high quality.
The firmware is flashable and upgradable. Future smartcards and features can be added without the need for new hardware.
The desktop software will be updated frequently. When needed a firmware upgrade will be available for free.
A built in frequency generator makes it possible to generate all regularly used smartcard frequencies automatically.
For eg: Octagon SF-1018 HD PVR Linux Twin, Dreambox, Reelbox, Triple Dragon, Linux PC or Windows PC
The Smargo® SmartReader Plus can not only be used in Linux or Windows computers but also in satellite receivers, routers, USB hubs or other embedded systems, as long as an USB connection is available and open source software is supported. Extra cables or power supply are not needed.
The SmartReader Plus is compatible with most common smartcards and the frequency is adjustable.
The integrated USB to Serial converter enables the SmartReader Plus to work with all standard Phoenix compatible Linux and Windows applications.
