MicroPython and Smart Card

Post by balobinp » Sat Jan 25, 2020 6:23 am

Dear All,

Java Smart Cards is a big and continuously grooving market in our days.
But there are very few specialists in Java Smart Cards on the market.
And there is a lack of information on the internet about this topic.

I personally, mostly use Python in everyday work.
It would be great to have Python on Smart Cards.

Did someone ever consider the possibility to move MicroPython to SmartCard?

Best Regards,
Pavel Balobin

The STM32 include the ISO7816 interface on the UART. There is an application note for make a reader smartcard.

the same with SAM microcontroller

I thinks can we send a APDU command for simulated a smarcard ? And I wonder if micropython could exploit :
of example of STM32cube ?

have a good day
