The ACR100 Smart Card Reader is designed as a combination device that is plugged into the Universal Serial Bus communication port of the host computer system. This hardware component is capable of functioning both as a smart card reader and a mass storage device. It is automatically detected by the operating system once plugged into the machine. This is primarily because it is supported by the Plug and Play functionality of newer operating system environments. The manufacturer supplied device driver is required to allow the device to activate its full feature sets and allow it to perform both its intended functions without any problems. The device driver also allows the hardware component to be correctly detected by running software applications allowing the computer user to store documents and other file types for better flexibility and mobility because of its relatively handy size.
