Request yours today!

The SpringCard CSB-HSP is a multi-interfaces reader/writer in a simple and discreete case. Like the other SpringCard USB coupling devices, the CSB-HSP is compliant with the PC/SC standard. And the speed of the USB interface associated with the high rate of the ISO 14443 standard enables the CSB-HSP to reach the best transaction speed.

Based on the H663 module, it includes:

  • An antenna to communicate with smart cards,
  • 1 slot for contact cards (ID-1 / 1FF size),
  • 3 slots for SAM mini-SIM sized cards (ID-000 / 2FF size).

Firmware Upgrade is available here.
