Description:

New module based smartcard reader
The Infinity USB Smart is a new module based smartcard reader, with a new approach for ensuring a very high level of compatibility and functionality.

The core functionality is a phoenix/smartmouse interface, compatible with any Windows, Linux-based system or embedded Linux-based systems like DreamBox, Set-top boxes (STB) or other industrial controller.

This is just one of the features of the Infinity USB Smart. The module-based approach makes it possible to install new modules any other smartcard related functionality or standalone operation!

The innovative dome-shaped design with upright card insertion, makes one-hand operation possible while keeping a small footprint on the desk.


Driverless USB
Infinity USB Smart is connected to a PC using a single USB 2.0 connection (backwards compatible with USB 1.1). Since Infinity USB Smart is based on the HID standard, no custom drivers are needed, and installation is as easy as inserting the USB connector.

Up to 127 units can be installed on one single host (a PC or embedded system), and if needed a USB hub can be used to extend the number of USB connections on the host.


Phoenix/Smartmouse (VCP)
The core functionality of Infinity USB Smart is to provide Phoenix/Smartmouse compatibility through a virtual COMport (VCP). The VCP has been very thoroughly tested with most popular applications and cards. Setting up the VCP is done through the accompanying software, and all popular frequencies (3.58, 3.68 and 6.00MHz) and a boost mode can be selected.

Linux support
VCP modules are available and ready for the Linux operating system, making it possible to use the Infinity USB Smart on both Linux-based PCs, or with embedded systems. Industrial controllers, Set-top Boxes (STB) like DreamBox or any other Linux embedded system with USB host controller can be used.

Infinity USB Smart (Smart VCP module) guide for Linux

It is possible to use the Infinity USB Smart (Smart VCP module) directly on Linux, a DreamBox or other Linux based embedded systems. A serial port ('/dev/ttyusb0' or '/dev/usb/tts/0') will be created as soon as the Infinity USB Smart is connected to the USB port on the Linux based system.

This guide explains how to install the Smart VCP module and connect the Infinity USB Smart on a Linux based PC, a DreamBox or any other Linux based embedded system, for instance a set-top box (STB).

  1. Set the switch on the bottom of the device to the "NORMAL" position.
  2. Connect the Infinity USB Smart to a Windows PC.
  3. Default drivers for Infinity USB Smart will install automatically if needed.
  4. Install the Infinity USB Smart software, and run the software when done.
  5. From the menu select "Tools->Install module".
  6. Select the "Smart VCP 3.58MHz Smartmouse" module.
  7. Press "Update".
  8. A few seconds later the module will be installed.
  9. Close the software and disconnect the Infinity USB Smart from the PC.
  10. Set the switch on the bottom of the device to "MODULE".

Most Linux distributions and DreamBox images have USB serial drivers included. Simply connect the USB cable to the STB or PC and a serial port will be available as either '/dev/usb/tts/0' or '/dev/ttyusb0'.


Module based
Infinity USB Smart is module based, with separate firmware based modules. This means that the new firmware modules can be installed and downloaded to the hardware when new functionality is needed.
Currently modules for use with Linux embedded systems are ready for download, and more will be available later, and on user demand.
Installing a module is easy with the Infinity USB Smart software, simply choose a module and press a single button. The modules are complete selfcontained "building blocks", working completely independent from the main-module (VCP).
Choosing between the main-module and user installed modules are done with a small switch on the bottom of the Infinity USB Smart hardware.


Innovative design
The dome shaped design, with an injection-moulded casing in matte white ABS, will look good on any desk. The smartcard is inserted from the top, making one-hand operation easy, and leaving just a small footprint on the desk.
A dual-colour red/green LED indicates the different states of the programmer.
