teardown: Verifone vx570 card terminal

The following is a disassembly of a working Verifone Vx570 I scored off ebay for $20. The switch that sits behind the spring-loaded LCD display had already been tripped before I received it, meaning that it had switched into recovery mode.

The device has a large number of components, with roughly 28 IC’s and a number of physical ports as well:

  • USB
  • RS232
  • Ethernet
  • Modem
  • Pin Pad

The following IC’s can easily be identified:
