Abstract

See full text

An integrated circuit for a smart card in accordance with an exemplary embodiment includes a transceiver and a processor for communicating with a host device via the transceiver. More particularly, the processor provides at least one default descriptor to the host device, and cooperates with the host device to perform an enumeration based upon the at least one default descriptor. Moreover, the processor also detects a system event and, responsive to the system event, provides at least one alternate descriptor to the host device and cooperates with the host device to perform a new enumeration based thereon.
