For those wanting to explore smart card development we would recommend purchasing an evaluation kit which typically consists of hardware, tools, utilities, demos, and sample code to facilitate the development of applications.
Many kits also include application tools & code samples for building a companion software piece for PCs or terminals. These are ideal for a proof-or concept, feasibility study, smart card pilot or turn-key solution.
USC have a stock of cards for quick configuration for larger proof-of-concept deployments and pilots. These kits cover a wide spectrum of smart card technology including Java Card, Multos, IOT, Smart Card Readers and popular ISO14443 contactless cards like Mifare and NTAG.
