Yes, see, for instance HID at Wikipedia[^].

CPallini Do you have any idea, why reading the card using the hid doesn't work for me. My device gets detected but I cannot read it, Filestream.BeginRead() doesn't get any data so it never returns ant the callback doesn't get hit.

I did the reading with raw input and it works fine.

Nope, I suppose you should contact the device manufacturer.
