Interfacing MCU with a magnetic stripe card reader

Posted: 30 Jan 2009     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:magnetic stripe card reading  DS5250  microcontroller 

This application note explains how magnetic stripe card reading and decoding can easily be implemented on the DS5250 secure microcontroller. The article also demonstrates how applications can be developed that combine magnetic stripe card reading functions with the higher level security and cryptographic functions of a secure microcontroller. This example uses the DS5250 evaluation kit to interface to a magnetic stripe card reader. Source code is provided, and can easily be ported to any of Maxim's other 8051-based microcontrollers.
