C&K Components enhanced its CCM01 and CCM02 smart card connectors with increased protection against PIN number theft. While fully complying with VISA PCI PED requirements, the additional protection eliminates the capability for a hacker to insert a bug on the connector and extract the PIN details. Used in point-of-sale (PoS or transaction) applications, these connectors are housed in compact, space-saving packages. Each model offers a different level of protection relative to the specific terminal architecture. These surface mount RoHS-compliant products feature 100,000 and 500,000 card insertion cycles, respectively, dust protected card detection switches and EMV compliance. There is sufficient room underneath the connector to place space-sensitive SMT components.
