Low-Cost Smart Card Interface

The 73S80xx Family of Smart Card Interface ICs Offers Best-in-Class Performance with Flexible Package and Supply Options

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The 73S8010R is a single smart card interface IC, compliant to the electrical requirements of ISO 7816-3 and EMV 4.0 electrical specifications. It implements an I²C bus control, making it particulary suitable for applications that require several card interfaces. This is applicable to multiple SIM/SAM (secure access module) configurations in POS and payment terminals. The I²C host interface requires fewer controller interface signals, in comparison to applications that traditionally use TDA8004/TDA8002 type devices. The 73S8010R can be used in conjunction with Teridian’s 73S12xx host microcontroller family or any other host microcontroller that can support the smart card protocol.
