Complies with all major standards and certifications

ASEDrive readers comply with all major international and industry standards such as ISO7816, Microsoft PC/SC, EMV, JIS X6303/6304, FIPS201 and is suitable for any smart card application without exception. ASEDrive IIIe is certified as Designed for XP, Working with Vista logo and “Compatible with Windows 7” by Microsoft. Certified by USB Implementers Forum as a USB Full 2.0 Speed device. ASEDrive appears on the FIPS021 APL.

The highest level of performance

ASEDrive contact is designed for computationally intensive security applications, such as Digital Signature and PKI. ASEDrive IIIe can communicate with the smart card at up to 500Kbps and with personal computers at up to 12Mbps (USB 2.0 Full Speed). It also achieves higher performance by driving the smart card chip at up to four times the default frequency (when supported by the card). This feature is a significant performance advantage for intensive applications such as Digital Signature.

The ASEDrive design is based on Athena’s extensive experience in the manufacture of smart card readers and cards. Its fine-tuned firmware and driver software ensures that it will provide the highest level of performance possible.
