Memory cards are the simples type of smartcard. Memory
cards only have some amount of memory inside the card and this memory can be
normally read and written. There is normally nothing relly intelligne inside
those cards. Typically the memory inside this kind of cards is EPROM, EEPROM
or FLASH memory. This card type is very widely used as telehone cards (telecards).
Many countries use a telecard system which is very close to the first
smartcard telephone system in use in France.
