ACR30 API
version 2.5 November 2005
1. Introduction
This manual describes the use of ACR30 interface software to program the ACR30 smart card readers. It is
a set of library functions implemented for the application programmers to operate the ACR30 smart card
readers and the inserted smart cards. Currently, it is supplied in the form of 32-bit DLL (for Windows
95/98/NT). It can be programmed using the popular development tools like Visual C/C++, Borland C/C++,
Visual Basic, Delphi, FoxPro, etc.
Depending on the reader model, ACR30 series of smart card readers can be connected to the PC via the
RS/232 interface or USB interface. The connecting interfaces of different model of readers are summarized
as follows:
Model Numbers
Connecting interface
ACR30S, ACR30S-S
Serial RS/232
ACR30U
USB interface
Even though the hardware communication interface can be different, application programs can still use the
same API (Application Programming Interface) for operating the smart card readers. Actually, the purpose of
using the ACR30 library is to provide the programmer with a simple and consistent interface over all possible
hardware. It is the responsibility of the ACR30 library to handle the communication details, parameter
conversions and error handling. The architecture of the ACR30 library can be visualized as the following

2. ACR30
2.1 Overview
ACR30 is a set of high-level functions provided for the application software to use. It provides a consistent
application programming interface (ACR30 API) for the application to operate on the card reader and the
corresponding inserted card. ACR30 communicates with the ACR30 reader via the communication port
facilities provided by the operating system. ACR30 is supposed to be platform independent provided that
there is a minor modification on the communication module of the ACR30 to adapt to different operating
environments.
2.2 Communication Speed
The ACR30 library controls the communication speed between the reader and the PC. For those readers
using the serial RS232 connection, the default communication baud rate (factory setting) is 9600bps, no
parity, eight bits and one-stop bits. A higher speed of 115200bps can be achieved by using software
command issuing from the host. Please notice that the above communication speed setting applies only on
those readers using the RS232 connection. For the USB type of connection, the speed is fixed at 9600bps
and 1.5Mbps respectively.

3. ACR30 API
The ACR30 Application Programming Interface (API) defines a common way of accessing the ACR30
reader. Application programs invoke ACR30 through the interface functions and perform operations on the
inserted card through the use of ACI commands. The header file ACR30.H, which contains all the function
prototypes and macros described below, is available for the program developer.
3.1 Interface Data Structure
The ACR30 API makes use of several data structures to pass parameters between application programs
and the library driver. These data structures are defined in the header file ACR30.H and they are discussed
below:
3.1.1 AC_APDU
typedef
struct {

P2;
INT16
Lc;
INT16
Le;
BYTE
DataIn[256];
BYTE
DataOut[256];
WORD16
Status;
} AC_APDU;
The AC_APDU data structure is used in the AC_ExchangeAPDU function for the passing of commands and
data information into the smart card. For memory card operation, please refer to section 3.3 for the definition
of fields’ value. For MCU card (T=0,T=1) operation, these values are specific to the smart card operating
system. You must have the card reference manual before you can perform any valid operations on the card.
Please notice that Lc represents the data length going into the card and Le represents the data length
expecting from the card.

3.1.2 AC_SESSION

struct {
BYTE CardType;
BYTE SCModule;
// Card type selected

// ATR string
BYTE HistLen;
// Length of the Historical data
BYTE HistOffset; // Offset of the Historical data
// from the beginning of ATR
INT16 APDULenMax; // Max. APDU supported
} AC_SESSION;
The AC_SESSION data structure is used in the AC_StartSession function call for the retrieval of ATR
information from the smart card. Before calling AC_StartSession, the program needs to specify the value of
CardType. After calling the function, the ATR string can be found in ATR field and the length is stored in
ATRLen.

3.2 Interface Function Prototypes
Generally, a program is required to call AC_Open first to obtain a handle. The handle is required for
subsequent calls to AC_StartSession, AC_ExchangeAPDU, AC_EndSession and AC_Close. The inserted
card can be powered up by using the AC_StartSession function and card commands can be exchanged with
the inserted card using the AC_ExchangeAPDU function. Moreover, AC_SetOptions and AC_GetInfo are
two commands that can be used to set and read the various information of the reader.
3.2.1 AC_RescanBus
This function asks the system to rescan all the readers connected. Before calling it, all allocated handles
(returned by AC_Open) should be released. It should be called for the system to detect and be able to
connect to the new reader(s) connected by user.
Format:
INT16 AC_DECL AC_RescanBus();
Returns:
The return value is negative and contains the error code when the function encounters an error
during operation. Otherwise, it returns 0.
3.2.2 AC_Open
This function opens a port and returns a valid reader handle for the application program.
Format:
INT16 AC_DECL AC_Open (INT16 ReaderType, INT16 ReaderPort);

3.2.4 AC_StartSession
This function starts a session with a selected card type and updates the session structure with the values
returned by the card Answer-To-Reset (ATR). A session is started by a card reset and it is ended by either
another card reset, a power down of the card or the removal of a card from the reader. Note that this
function will power up the card and perform a card reset.

Returns:
The return value is zero if the function is successful. Otherwise, it returns a negative value containing the
error code. For the detailed meaning of the error code, please refer to appendix A.
Examples:
// Prepare Session structure for SLE 4442 memory card
INT16
RtnCode,i;
AC_SESSION Session;
Session.CardType = AC_SLE4442;
// Card type = SLE4442
//Start a session on previously opened port
RtnCode = AC_StartSession(hReader, &Session);
// Print the card ATR
printf("Card Answer to Reset : ");
for (i = 0; i < (INT16) Session.ATRLen; i++)
printf(" %02X",Session.ATR[i]);
Remarks:
1) When AC_AUTO is selected, the reader will try to detect the inserted card type automatically (in main slot).
However, while the reader can distinguish the T=0 and T=1 card, it cannot distinguish different types of memory card.
2) For accessing the MCU card in SAM slot, besides opening a port, you may need to select the AC_SAM_T0 (for T=0
card) and AC_SAM_T1 (for T=1 card) in calling AC_StartSession.
3.2.5 AC_EndSession
This function ends a previously started session and powers off the card.
Format:
INT16 AC_DECL AC_EndSession (INT16 hReader);
Input Parameters:
The table below lists the parameters for this function
Parameters
hReader
Definition / Values
A valid reader handle returned by AC_Open()
Returns:
The return value is zero if the function is successful. Otherwise, it returns a negative value containing the
error code. For the detailed meaning of the error code, please refer to appendix A.
Examples:
//End session on a previously started session
RtnCode = AC_EndSession(hReader);
