The SmarCAM-3.5 is an electronic card following the PC Card standard and fully compliant with the DVB CI and CI Plus specification. This module combined with an ISO 7816 Smart Card provided by a CA Vendor is able to descramble the Transport Stream, without any support of the Set Top Box/IDTV demux. The complete Transport Stream and miscellaneous Data flow between Set Top Box/IDTV and the CA module are exchanged through the Common Interface.
