Maxim IC release new smart card interface , DS8313 which is a low-cost, analog front-end for a smart card reader designed for smart card applications that do not require the use of the auxiliary card I/O contacts C4 and C8 (AUX1 and AUX2). The DS8313 supports 5V, 3V, and 1.8V smart cards. The absence of a charge pump reduces active power consumption, and the DS8313 also supports an ultra-low-power 10nA stop mode.
The DS8313 is designed to interface between a system microcontroller and the smart card interface, providing all power supply, protection, and level shifting required for IC card applications.
The DS8314 is similar to the DS8313, but only uses one analog (smart card) power supply. Therefore, the device has reduced ability to provide power to smart cards, but it is still sufficient for many applications, allowing the DS8314 to drop into many TDA8024 sockets without hardware changes.
The DS8313L and DS8314L use a negative polarity-presence detect instead of the default positive-polarity detect. Both devices are available in 28-pin SO and TSSOP packages.
Main features of these smart card interface are : analog Interface and Level Shifting for IC Card
