    First Impression

The UC27A is a highly integrated single chip USB Smart Card reader controller.
Highly integration enables the lowest BOM cost of smart card reader.
The UC27A supports multiple international standards including ISO7816 for IC card standard, PC/SC 2.0 for windows smart card standard,
Microsoft WHQL, EMV for Europay MasterCard Visa standard and USB IF CCID standard. The application of AK9563 can be generally applied to Smart Card read/write terminal devices, such as ATM, POS terminal, Public telephone, E Commerce, personal consumption on Internet, personal certification, prepay system, loyalty system…etc.

      Application Block Diagram

The US27A is used as USB Smart Card reader. Following is the application diagram of a typical card reader product with AK9563 by connecting the card reader to an ATM or E-Commerce. AK9563 can also be used in STB, embedded system, POS…etc.

USB Selective Suspend Feature
The driver determines whether it should enter selective suspend state by the following requirements.
The card is in power off state or there is no card in the reader.
The reader is idle at least for a given time (30 seconds by default). It means during the period there is no command issuing to reader and there is no card inserting/removing event occurs.
When the driver detects both the two requirements above are met, it starts processing the following tasks; Send standard USB command to the reader to enable remote wake function.
Start selective suspend procedure to ask the system to suspend the reader.
After entering the selective suspend state, the driver determines whether it should exit selective suspend state when one of the following conditions occurs;
There is any command which intend to communicate with the reader.
When card inserting/removing event occurs, the reader issues resume signal to the host. Then the system will inform the driver to exit selective suspend state.
