Does anybody know where I can get the OS for these cards? i.e. 1.06 or 1.03.

I don't know what you mean by an "OS for these cards". Maybe they don't have an OS; my AVR apps have none.

I Google'd for "titanium smart card", since I had no idea what they looked like when they were at home. The first line of one of the Web descriptions tells quite a bit of the story:

Quote:
- High-performance, Low-Power Secure AVR RISC Archtiecture

AFAIK, >>anything<< about the Secure AVR product line will require you to contact Atmel directly and at the least sign non-disclosure agreements even to get the datasheet.

For a hobby project, you probably will not get very far. For a production project, you probably know all that.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

That's the point, they do have an OS on them- 1.03 or 1.06..... I wanted to make one, but is useless without the OS..... then you load your application....

Hi,

Perhaps you are looking for some thrid-party OS? Any idea on the name or type? Just "OS" is a bit of a stretch, for example I think http://www.basiccard.com/ will run on some of the secure AVRs.

Regards,

The OS wouldn't come from Atmel, it would come from the card vendor, and is usually specific to the application the card is intended to be implemented in, though there are some general purpose Card operating systems out there. You will need to contact the card/OS vendor to get information on the OS. Also note that the OS, if written for the secure AVR processor, likely will not run on an off-the-shelf AVR, so building your own is likely not an option (the SecureAVR's contain additional peripherals that the standard AVR's do not, like an ISO7816 interface, and possibly a cryptographic co-processor). The card vendor is also not likely going to provide you with binaries or source to the OS so that you can make your own cards (without some significant financial compensation). Your best bet is to find as much documentation on the OS as you can, and write your own compatible OS (this will also help with the hardware problem mentioned above). Having said that, I will not comment any further, for fear that your applicaiton is for satellite television hacking (an activity which I do not support).

Writing code is like having sex.... make one little mistake, and you're supporting it for life.

These AVR Titanium cards with Titanium OS are used for digital satellite hacking, so try to go to one of these forums instead.
Usually these cards are sold with the OS pre-programmed.

I'm hoping to use the 90sc3232c.... not a standard avr. Whether they are available to Joe Public may be another matter.
Thx for the info so far...

I don't think you will find the OS anywhere, usually it's sold pre-programmed like here for example with Titanium OS 1.06:

I think the OS is intellectual property.

Be very careful if trading with Parabolic...... I've read several stories about them regarding C/card fraud...
