          What are Smart Cards?
              Smart cards, also referred to as IC cards by ISO, are credit card size cards embedded with IC chips. These IC Chips help store information such as personal data and monetary values, with other capacities available to be added for high-end operations. Compared to magnet-strip cards, smart cards can store hundreds and thousands of times the information, and their reliability and security are advanced by the use of encryption and biometrics. The three most common card types found nowadays are the contact type, contact-less type and hybrid type. Different types are used depending on the industry. The popularity of smart cards are quickly spreading across the globe, paving ways toward new and better future for the financial, telecommunications, and various other industries.
              Over the years, AUK has become an expert in the designing and manufacturing of smart and SIM card connectors. We have developed a wide spectrum of smart card connector series and place great emphasis on delivering quality and value to all our customers.

          What are SIM Cards?
              SIM is short for Security Identification Module. SIM cards the size of small stamps with an embedded IC chip. They are most commonly found in mobile phones, and today, they are used in over 70% of the mobile phone market. SIM cards contain codes which help encrypt/decrypt phone signals. They store 16~64kb of memory, which translates to hundreds of phone numbers, addresses, and text messages.
              AUK provides a number of SIM card connectors, many of which are used by leading handheld manufacturers. Please take a look at our SCU, SCT, and SCV series.

          What are Friction / Landing Contacts?
              When smart cards are inserted into a friction type connector, the surfaces of the cards are dragged along the friction contacts (Hence causing friction and the name). The advantage of friction contacts is its lower cost, but the disadvantage is that dragging results in easier scratching of the IC chips on the smart cards. The minimum insertion/extraction cycles for AUK friction types is 100,000 (series SCF, SCG).
              When a smart card is inserted into a landing type connector, the landing contacts are raised until the card is fully inserted, then lands on the IC module. This prevents scratching the chip. The minimum insertion/extraction cycles for AUK's landing type is 200,000 (series SCL, SCM).
              Selecting the right type of connector depends on your intended use. If your reader is being used often, then a landing contact mechanism is better because of its greater life span. As well, the landing mechanism greatly reduces any damage of the smart card IC chips resulting from friction.

          What is EMV?
              EMVco is formed by three leading credit card companies: Europay International, Mastercard, and VISA. The purpose of this organization is to manage and enhance the design of pay systems to insure their compatibility with the every increasing use of IC chip cards. Connectors have EMV Approval "provides an increased level of confidence that interoperability and consistent logical behavior between compliant applications have been achieved." For more information regarding EMV, please visit

          What is ISO 7816?
              The ISO 7816 is a standard set by the International Organization for Standardization. It defines the physical characteristics of the IC chip, the dimensions and location of the contacts, and the electronic signals and transmission protocols. Connectors which comply with ISO 7816 means it can be used to connect the ISO specified IC chips. For more information regarding ISO, please visit
