Combining a smart card reader and a Micro-SD card slot in a compact USB token, the ACR101I SIMicro (CCID) provides you with complete support for highly secure mobile applications.

The ACR101I SIMicro (CCID) has reliable support for ISO 7816 Smart Cards. With security as its top priority, the device gives you the option to integrate Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology into your mobile applications for maximized protection of sensitive data. The ACR101I SIMicro (CCID) is also available in HID bringing you the same plug and play convenience which does not require any special driver installation.

Further, two additional features make the ACR101I SIMicro (CCID) more than just your ordinary smart card reader. It has an embedded Mifare chip that transforms it into a contactless token to be used for various contactless applications, such as logical and physical access. Likewise, it has a Micro-SD card reader that enables you to store sensitive data in a Micro-SD card without compromising security. This is made possible with the use of encryption that protects data saved into the Micro-SD card. With all these features and more, the ACR101I SIMicro (CCID) is the perfect tool for smart card applications requiring high security and flexibility.
