A smart card is a card that is embedded with either  8 bit microprocessor with a memory chip or programmed logic memory chip. The microprocessor allows data to be added, deleted or manipulated onto the card (e.g, ID cards allow employee detail to be re-altered if needed to) whilst the memory chip allows only pre-defined programmed operations to occur (e.g, disposable phone cards only store credit time whilst it is dependent on its card reader to subtract the credit time.
