This specific hardware component and its associated device driver works in conjunction with the CT-API software interface. This particular software interface is primarily responsible for simplifying the communication process of the host device with the smart card itself. The device driver of the CardMan 6020 supports the various functions of this software interface so that the smart card can deliver both synchronous and asynchronous data transmissions to the host computer system. The device driver also supports all the important commands that can be issued in order to control the behavior of the card terminal. This commands are normally directed towards the card reader hardware component and is executed on the smart card. By using the correct device driver the host operating system platform can allow the computer user to specifically address independent ports associated with the smart card and its associated reader.
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
The execution of a program application request that is intended to control the behavior of the REQUEST ICC function is normally handled using the Port 512. The device driver of the CardMan 6020 upon receiving the request will initially check on its power status. If the supported hardware component is already powered on it will not be restarted by the request and a 6201 code will be returned to the calling program. In terms of card terminal assignments, the device driver can essentially support any value from 1 to 65535. Anything below or above these values will return an ERR_INVALID response to the CT_init command request. The deployment of this particular hardware component conforms with the 1.0 specification of the MKT which is based on the PC/SC. What this means is that the corresponding device driver for the PS/SC must also be present in the host computer system before this device can be activated. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CardMan 6020 errors before installing any driver updates.
