Atmel introduces a cost-optimized smart card reader IC

Atmel® Corporation announced the release of the AT83C22OK106, a smart card reader product targeting USB smart card keyboard. The AT83C22OK106 was developed in partnership with OMNIKEY®, a major smart card reader manufacturer. The new AT83C22OK106 is an updated and optimized version of the previous AT83C22OK. It includes 8051 core, USB interface, and ISO7816 UART smart card interface, as well as a high- efficiency DC/DC converter. Therefore, it is compliant with the major smart card standards such as EMV & PC/SC. It supports 5 V, 3 V and 1.8 V cards regardless of the input voltage. The AT83C22OK106 is designed to provide a solution for a reader system with only a few additional external components mounted on a single sided PCB. Arnaud Ruchon, Product Marketing Manager for Smart Card Reader ICs at Atmel stated, “The AT83C22OK106, combined with the state-of-the-art firmware developed by OMNIKEY, is a unique solution for keyboard manufacturers. It allows them to implement a keyboard with smart card functionality in less than two weeks.” He added, “Thanks to its optimized size, the AT83C22OK106 allows us to be even more price competitive.”
