ACS introduces a software development kit (SDK) for the ACOS7 and ACOS10 Combi cards. The SDK’s technical documents, demo application, and smart card and reader tool offer Chinese language support, in addition to English.
“More and more countries are embracing smart card technology,” says Gilbert Leung, vice president for sales and marketing of ACS. “China, specifically, released a remarkable number of smart cards for use in banking, transport, and other areas. In connection to this, and to the increasing prevalence of the Chinese language globally, we have decided to incorporate Chinese language support for this SDK.”
The 2011–2015 plan of China’s Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security (MOHRSS) states that China’s government has issued around 450 million integrated circuit (IC) cards and is expected to issue around eight million more by 2015, just for banking.
The ACOS7 dual-interface smart card is an all-in-one card that has been certified by the Ministry of Construction (MoC) standard in China. It addresses the requirements of AFC (Automated Fare Collection) applications and infrastructure projects worldwide, and can also be applied to facilitate secure and cashless payment in multi-application systems.
Compliant with ISO 7816, ISO 14443, and supportive of e-Deposit and e-Purse transactions, ACOS7 is an ideal choice for the world transportation market.
