73S1217F Evaluation Board Lite


The Teridian Semiconductor Corporation (TSC) 73S1217F Evaluation Board Lite is used as a platform to demonstrate the capabilities of the 73S1217F Smart Card Controller devices. It has been designed to operate either as a standalone or a development platform.

The 73S1217F Evaluation Board Lite can be programmed to run any of the Teridian turnkey applications or a user-developed custom application. Teridian provides its USB CCID application preloaded on the board and an EMV testing application on the CD.

Applications can be downloaded through the In-Circuit-Emulator (ICE) or through the TSC Flash Programmer Model TFP2. As a development tool, the Evaluation Board Lite has been designed to operate in conjunction with an ICE to develop and debug 73S1217F based embedded applications.
