Delta ASIC

Magnetic Stripe Data Retrieval

3 Track ASIC - High Noise Immunity - Data buffer with Shift-Out

The Delta ASIC is a high performance, low cost fully integrated magnetic stripe decoder chip. The ASIC offers many advantages over the conventional less integrated reading solutions.

The triple track Delta ASIC provides a "Shift-Out" protocol for extracting data that significantly simplifies the card-reader to micro-controller interface.

  • Low Power
  • 3 tracks
  • On board memory (shift-out interface)
  • AGC (Automatic Gain Control) - reads cards from 30% - 200% of ISO standards
  • Compact design - 4 mm x 5mm
  • 14 pin MLF™ surface mount package
  • Minimal external components - only a decoupling capacitor is required.
  • Only 2 signals, DATA and STROBE to connect to your micro-controller
  • Data buffer with Shift-Out - allows full card data to be locally stored on ASIC.
  • High noise immunity
  • High performance decoding - reads badly damaged cards
