12.1 SIM hardware requirements
The SIM API requires a smart card device that is capable of implementing a virtual machine and the SIM API framework. It is seen as necessary that there is sufficient EEPROM to contain SIM Applets (either SIM toolkit applications or other SIM applications) along side the mandatory GSM files and potentially many (if not all) of the optional GSM files. The hardware requirements are likely to be:
ROM: minimum 24K Bytes
RAM: minimum 1K Byte
EEPROM: minimum 16K Bytes
12.2 Technology limitations
12.2.1 Memory Recovery
Although there is a requirement for SIM API compliant devices to allow reconfiguration, termination and removal of Applets, it is recognised that SIM API devices may not be fully capable of reclaiming the memory freed up.
12.3.1 Remote Procedure Call
Some current technologies that meet the needs of the SIM API are not designed to allow RPC. Future alternative technologies may be able to support this. It is seen as a future requirement of SIM API when interacting with mobile equipment technologies such as MExE and WAP that RPC is supported.

Technology neutrality and implementation independence of specification
Release 99 version was created automatically after TSG-T #12 to ensure a complete set of specifications for Release 99. There are no technical changes compared to version 7.1.0
