Though it is recommended to use the newer v.2.0 Test Suite, the PC/SC Workgroup still makes available the “PC/SC test card set for the Windows Logo Program” for two week loan periods. This Loaner Set can be used to perform tests using the old test suite, Since there is only one Loaner Set, it is critical that all manufacturers adhere to the two week loan period.
The Loaner Set includes 5 cards: Bull, G&D, IBM, Infineon/Siemens, Schlumberger. If you have these cards already, you can perform tests with what you have and you do not need to order the Loaner Set.
The PC/SC Workgroup will manage the distribution of the Loaner Set. We will send the Loaner Set out on a first-come, first-served basis. A $125 shipping/handling fee will be charged when the Loaner Set is shipped. A delinquency fee of $1,000 will be charged for each week or portion of a week that the cards are not returned (any delinquency fee proceeds will be used for the furtherance of the PC/SC standard). Also, we will report any delinquency to the Microsoft WHQL program for their attention.
