I don't know ISO-7816. If it has no strict timing requirements, MPSSE or
even bit-bang mode may be able to handle.

When choosing parts , consider 2232C vs 2232H. ISO-7816. As a true
High-Speed device, the 2232H has faster turn around times (125 us vs 1 ms
for the 2232D plugged directly in the PC) and proce difference is small.
