SmartCards

Sun Aug 23, 2015 2:56 pm

Hi
I am trying to run smartcard reader on Raspberry Pi 2 with Windows 10 IoT. But when I plug this reader by USB port windows IoT doesnt see it. I was trying to install some kind of drivers by inf file but still nothing.
So my question is, IS IT POSSIBLE to run smartcard reader on windows 10 IoT Core?

If your smartcard reader has WinRT / Windows Universal drives it should be possible to communicate with it, otherwise you'll have to wait until Microsoft add support for it natively unfortunately.

stupid question...
is a smart card/sim card not compatible to i²c?
(before i had a RPi, i used a smart/sim-card reader/writer to program a i²c EEPROM-chip (24C16)...
so maybe it is the same in the opposite way - if a smard card reader/writer is compatible to i²c, then maybe a/your smart card is compatible to i²c too)

win 10 iot has i²c library in the Windows 10 IoT for RPi2.

I have found this:
What do you think about this solution?

No, that solution would probably not work for your issue.

The WinRT app communicates with a WCF service running on a real pc which is connected to the smart reader...

It looks like that beta-tester's route mentioned above might be the route to go to for now.

I'm using a pcProx RFID card reader with an application on the Pi.

The application doesn't really interact with the reader though, the reader just dumps what it scans as keyboard input with a carriage return at the end. So it just goes to whatever has the focus. Works fine.

You can't use the drivers provided for other versions of Windows because technically you'll need something compiled for ARM.
It's either you hope (and wait) that the IoT team provides built-in support for your reader, or the reader manufacturer releases a Win IoT driver.

If you could use USB redirection you might be able to get fancy and get around this.

I kind of doubt that's even supported in core though.

I use an NXP PN531 NFC reader using WinUSB

http://sourceforge.net/p/myfeeder/wiki/win10iot/

http://sourceforge.net/p/myfeeder/wiki/win8usb/

http://sourceforge.net/p/myfeeder/code/ ... /win10iot/

http://sourceforge.net/p/myfeeder/code/ ... sb/driver/

This uses an INF file that maps the USB device to WinUSB, then the Universal app talks directly to the USB device so has to know how to talk USB TAMA language.
