CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 11693-06 (R2011)
Identification Cards - Optical Memory Cards - General Characteristics (Adopted ISO/IEC 11693:2005, third edition, 2005-11-15)
This International Standard provides information necessary to store data on cards, to read data from cards, and for the physical, optical, and data interchangeability of optical memory cards in information processing systems.
It defines the general characteristics of optical memory cards including card materials, construction, characteristics, dimensions, and test environments which have been determined to be common to all types of optical memory cards regardless of recording method employed.
The intent of this International Standard is to provide necessary information for card manufacturers, card issuers and card users interested in interchanging digital information encoded on optical memory cards.
This International Standard can serve as a guide to companies who plan to develop equipment and systems using optical memory cards. The data content and use of the cards depend upon the applications developed by each industry group.
