Hi all,
can anybody point be to the SIM card driver sources ?

I looked at src/target/firmware/calypso but did not find it...

Is there some other sources that you know for SCI (Smart Card
Interface) that I can look at ?

Best regards,

SIMs, like any other SmartCard communicate over an interface very
similar to I2C, with the notable difference, that the terminal always
is the "bus" master.

Building your very own SmartCard terminal is very easy. Or you just use
one of the ready to use ones (from Towitoko, Reiner SCT, etc.).

Also have a look in the Open Baseband project
Which b nature also must deal with SIM cards.
