SmarTEC, part of TEC Solutions, Inc. of San Francisco CA. developed a compact, highly secure operating system for microprocessors.

We've proven the security and capabilities of the operating system by developing many smart card applications used in the industry. The requirement for a "thin" operating system, transportable across any microprocessor and capable of providing the highest level of security for identification, authentication, and payment transactions has become universal.

We are now bringing this OS, the SmarTEC OS, to the market in the form of licensable OS platform and a freely available SDK (software development kit). This move, allows any developer to enter or further their position in the smart card market.

We encourage all developers to see how they can enter the smart card market and further the innovation of this giant market. Download the SDK and get started right away.
