Cheapest JCOP JavaCard vendor that does not require buying their SDK?

0

We want to try several experiments with JCOP JavaCard programming. What is the cheapest JavaCard / Development Kit option? I do not mind paying for the card reader and cards. What I try to avoid is paying for the (potentially expensive) vendor SDK for that card. So we need some JCOP card that could be used with free SDK from Oracle / GlobalPlatform. Please advice!

Assuming that you need contactless NFC card to communicate with smartphone over NFC, it appears that this card is one of the cheapest options available that fits your requirements:

NXP J3A040 CL

It costs about $6.50 per unit, runs reasonably recent version of JavaCard and GlobalPlatform. Need to get more info about the following:

  • what kind of crypto algorithms are supported
  • how good is their random number generator
  • what levels it has been certified for (Common Criteria, EMV, etc)

From the page 10 of this document from NXP website we have the following specs for J3A040 CL card:
