T2M Automotive IEC7816 Slave IP

IEC7816 Slave IP

Description and Features

The IEC7816 Slave Controller IP Core is full-featured, easy-to-use, synthesizable designs that are easily integrated into any SoC or FPGA development. The IEC7816 Slave controller IP can be implemented in any technology. The Slave controller IP core supports the ISO/IEC 7816-3 standard. It can also support a variety of host bus interfaces for easy adoption into any design architecture - AHB, AHB Lite, APB, AXI, AXI-Lite, Tilelink, OCP, VCI, Avalon, PLB, Wishbone or custom buses. The Slave IP is delivered in Verilog RTL that can be implemented in an ASIC or FPGA. The Slave IP is validated in using FPGA. The core includes RTL code, test scripts and a test environment for complete simulation.
