 for ''smart card''
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  smart card
  
     Any plastic card (like a credit card) with an embedded
     integrated circuit for storing information.
  
     Smart cards are being incorporated into soldier's dog-tags and
     used to store hospital patients' medical records.  This way
     they are always instantly accessible.
  
     Other uses are as a form of token in banking systems.  You
     could store electronic money on the card or less valuable
     tokens such as those given away by petrol companies which you
     collect to exchange for free gifts at a later date.  The idea
     being that one smart card is easier to carry around than a
     multitude of paper tokens.
