Be Smart with U3

Putting Assemblies in Place

The classes of the Smartcard Subsembly Framework are grouped into five distinct namespaces. The classes of each namespace are bundled in a separate .NET assembly DLL. Let’s have a look on each of these:
Subsembly.SmartCard (Subsembly.SmartCard.dll)
This is responsible for the high level access to smart card readers and smart cards, completely independent of actual smart card reader API or driver technology.
Subsembly.SmartCard.PcSc (Subsembly.SmartCard.PcSc.dll)
This assembly provides low level PC/SC Workgroup API compliant smart card reader access and full PC/SC Workgroup API functionality. This entire namespace actually represents the product SmartCard Subsembly (PC/SC Edition), which is a subset of the Smartcard Subsembly (Professional) distribution.
Subsembly.SmartCard.CtApi (Subsembly.SmartCard.CtApi.dll)
This assembly provides low level CT-API based smart card reader access and full CT-API and CT-BCS functionality. This namespace actually represents the product Smartcard Subsembly (CT-API Edition), which is also a subset of the Smartcard Subsembly (Professional) distribution.
Subsembly.SmartCard.MCard (Subsembly.SmartCard.MCard.dll)
This assembly provides low level MCARD API based memory card access and Smartcard Subsembly Framework extension. It depends on the Subsembly.SmartCard.PcSc and Subsembly.SmartCard. This extension is included in the Smartcard Subsembly (Professional) distribution.
Subsembly.SmartCard.Acr80 (Subsembly.SmartCard.Acr80.dll)
This assembly provides low level ACR80 API based smart card reader access and Smartcard Subsembly Framework extension. This module depends on Subsembly.SmartCard. This extension is included in the Smartcard Subsembly (Professional) distribution.
The following figure shows the Smartcard Subsembly assemblies and their dependencies.

So, i hope it gets more interesting to develop Smart Card Client applications in .NET now!!!
