This piece of hardware component belongs to the category of compact smart card readers that can be deployed in practically every type of modern computing environment. The CardMan 4000 is designed with a Personal Computer Card architecture which allows it to be hosted on a vacant PCMCIA slot on the host computer system. The device driver of this specific hardware component supports the Type II PC Card format that is commonly associated with portable or mobile computer systems. The smart card is inserted into the provided slot on the CardMan 4000 thereby removing the need for additional external card holders or messy cabling among others. In order to protect the smart card from damage it goes completely into the card reader slot on the supported hardware component. The device driver for this particular hardware component is responsible for establishing the communication link between the card reader, the smart card, and the host computer system.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
In order to successfully implement data exchange and verification procedures the device driver of the CardMan 4000 supports various smart card protocols like the I2C, SLE 4443, SLE 4428, SLE 4432, SLE, 4418, T=1, and T=0 among others. The support for other protocols may be requested by the computer user from the manufacturer if necessary. By installing the appropriate device driver for this particular hardware component the computer user gains access to the CT-API and PC/SC software interfaces. These types of interfaces is what makes it possible for the CardMan 4000 and its corresponding device driver to implement its security mechanisms for the supported computing environment. The device driver may also be used by third party developers to support other types of operating system environments or to create customized software applications. This type of hardware component is not supported by any generic device driver primarily due to the proprietary nature of its implemented technology. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CardMan 4000 errors before installing any driver updates.
