1  Using Arduino / Storage / Re: Inerfacing with smart card on: March 01, 2011, 06:42:25 am
I have made no progress...
Since you have called Wire.begin() you can't modify analog pin #4 and #5 unless with Wire lib functions...
Doing something like "digitalWrite(A5, HIGH); ... ; digitalWrite(A5, LOW)" doesn't work...
I can't understand how the Wire lib (or in general how the I2C protocol) threat the clock process: there is an explicited called clock() function or internally there is something like an oscillator that works continuously?
Any help?

Thanks for the answers.

Since you have connected the clock pin (#3 on the card), to an analog pin, which is, by definition, input only, how did you "send one clock"?
That's my problem. Since I want to use the Wire lib to read the data (it makes things a lot easier), i had to plug the CLK line and the data line to analog pin #5 and #4. So I have no idea how to send one clock, i tried to do it in my code (see clock() function) but it doesn't work.
The problem with the Wire library is that it doesn't provide any support for a third line (the reset one trough which i need to send the ATR command) so i need to manually do the clock-thing...

Thanks for the infos!

Hi all,
I want to read the data of a smart card with arduino but it isn't as simple as i thought.
I have a smart card that I don't know of which type it is, so I discover that by sending a "answer to reset" command to the card I should get a 4 byte string that identify the card type. My problem now is how to get this code.

I've  plugged the card to arduino by following this image:

1. VCC (alimentation)
2. RST (remise à zéro)
3. CLK (horloge)
4. D+ (USB Inter-chip)
5. GND (masse)
6. SWP
7. I/O (entrée/sortie)
8. D- (USB Inter-chip)

I've plugged 1 with the 5v pin
2 with the 3 analog pin
3 with the 5 analog pin
5 with the GND pin
7 with the 4 analog pin

To send an ATR command you have to held the reset pin high, send one clock, relase the reset pin and then you can read the 4 byte data.
Here is shown well:

I've wrote this code:
#include <Wire.h>

int resetPin=3;
int clockPin=4;
int dataPint=5;

void clock(){
  analogWrite(clockPin, 1023);
  analogWrite(clockPin, 0);

void setup(){

  analogWrite(resetPin, 1023);

void loop(){}

Obviously it doesn't work... Any idea about how to do this operation? I can't find any reference on the internet...
