A conditional access module (CAM) is an electronic device, usually incorporating a slot for a smart card, which equips an Integrated Digital Television or set-top box with the appropriate hardware facility to view conditional access content that has been encrypted using a conditional access system.

Definition by wikipedia

The primary purpose of the CAM is to derive control words, which are short-term decryption keys for decrypting the encrypted content

Here is a few pics of an old cam which worked in early 90s

This goes inside the Common Interface slot on your stb

probablly YES , but you need correct recent sun irdeto2 version cam moudles placed in the reciver , not every cam card communicate in between the descrembler and the cam , each and every encryption have thair own decryption , and communication algorithm

dont know the price, This came with a Eurostar EB-9900 STB which one of my cousins brought from UAE long back, I think it is still working , Because if I inserted it in the stb it shows "initailizing cam now" , message
