IRVINE, CA, September 13, 2010 — CardLogix, a leading manufacturer of smart cards and software, announced today a major upgrade of its Smart Toolz® Smart Card Development Kit. Smart Toolz enables the development of a smart card system for a wide variety of applications, including Identity, Healthcare, Stored Value, and Loyalty.

 Smart Toolz Features:

  • A completely new Card Configuration Utility (CCU) – a feature-rich tool that simplifies and speeds up card development and testing
  • Contactless smart card support with software, cards, and a dual mode reader
  • Enhanced Winplex® middleware with .NET support

The Smart Toolz Card Configuration Utility is the newest tool for configuring and testing a card structure, efficiently focusing development on the exact card features that are desired. This reduces time-intensive research and
documenting, and streamlines card design.

CCU Features

  • An on-card data and security modeler to configure all security functions and to set up files
  • An on-card data editor for loading, editing card data, and enabling better visibility into its use with a secondary application. The editor also sets up on-card data security, such as encryption and permissions, for each
    configuration and sector.
  • A key vault for managing all of the keys used for a particular security profile

Smart Toolz Features

  • The CardAppz® Demonstration Tool for ‘test driving’ a card application. CardAppz helps non-programmers to fully demonstrate card capabilities within a completely configurable card database and system in order
    to illustrate a customer design concept. CardAppz is also powerful enough to demonstrate programmer-configurable options, such as user interface and security, in their custom applications
  • Five different contact memory smart cards, and five different contactless cards, including MIFARE™ types
  • A model SD1010 dual mode contactless card reader from SCM Microsystems, Inc.
  • Winplex® middleware for loading card data, with programming examples for C++, .NET, and Visual Basic
