ACR100 SIMFlash (HID)

The ACR100 SIMFlash (HID) is a SIM card reader and a memory storage combined into one.  Designed both to access SIM cards and to store data or application, it is ideal for GSM solutions such as GSM management software and VoIP applications, electronic payment systems, e-commerce, home banking, transportation, and computer/network access.

i) Serves as a Plug-In (SIM-Sized) Smart Card Reader:
The ACR100 SIMFlash (HID) Smart Card Reader is a reliable and cost-effective smart card reader for security-related applications. It is a high-speed plug-in USB card reader which, paired with mass storage, enables one to do more than simply backing up and managing SIM card information through the PC.  It supports most memory and MCU cards conforming to the T=0 and T=1 protocols, and GSM cards conforming to the GSM 11.11 specification.

ii) Serves as a Mass Storage Device:
Furthermore, the ACR100 SIMFlash (HID) is a mass storage device. Being highly portable – with a dimension of 77 mm x 23 mm x 10 mm – makes it a perfect companion for users on the go. There is no need for additional cable and power supply, since the device is bus-powered. Various options for partitioning the flash drive are also available; CD-ROM, boot disk and public, and locked and hidden areas can all be accessed within the same device.

iii) Plug and Play Feature
Aside from its capabilities for mass storage, the ACR100 SIMFlash (HID) also has a plug-and-play feature made possible by its being compliant with USB HID (Human Interface Device). This eliminates the need for driver installation, allowing for the device’s easy integration into the PC environment.
