GPRS Portable Smart Card Terminal Software Development

The latest addition to the PIN-pad reader product line, ACR880 is a secure and portable smart card terminal that secures and streamlines various transactions using smart card technology. This innovative device is capable of facilitating secure mutual authentication between a card and a reader, detailed multi-layered information from the cards based on embedded access rights, and transactions through both private and public network infrastructures. It can offer solutions to different applications including e-healthcare, e-government and e-administration.

ACR880 may function with or without its cradle, thus giving users the option to use it either as a powerful desktop device with other peripherals like magnetic stripe readers and thermal printers, or as a standalone and handheld reader that may be used in field works. It has Secure PIN Entry (SPE) to protect every PIN code entered into the device from security attacks while it is on desktop mode. It also has GPRS connectivity to allow data transmission even with the reader on standalone mode.
