In general, a smart card is an integrated circuit card with memory capable of making decisions. A smart card, chip card or integrated circuit card (ICC), is defined as any pocket-sized card with embedded integrated circuits which can process information. In this project, we are using a contact smart card where the information inside the card is communicated with the card reader by inserting card into the card reader. The card reader in this project used is an SR-90 SDK of 1KB memory size. The main functionality of this project is to access details of a passport holder through Smart card technology. For this purpose, the authorized person is provided with a Smart card. This card contains an integrated circuit that is used for storing, processing information through modulating and demodulating of the radio frequency signal that is being transmitted by the reader. Thus, the data stored in this card is referred to as passport details of the person. Passport verification and checking is a very time consuming process. This proposed system simplifies the process by giving the authorized person a smart card containing all the passport details like name, passport number and nationality, etc. Once, the person places the card into the card reader, it reads the data and verifies it with the data present in the system and, if it matches, then it displays the details of the passport holder. This project utilizes a microcontroller from the 8051 family. For display, a 16X2 LCD is used. The status also can be retrieved from this system by pressing the status button interfaced to a microcontroller. This project uses regulated 5v, 500mA power supply. 7805 and 7812 three terminal voltage regulators are used for voltage regulation. Bridge type full wave rectifier is used to rectify the ac output of secondary of 230/12v step down transformer.
