Rousset, FranceAtmel Corp. is sampling the AT91SC192192CT-USB, a flash-based, ARM SC100 powered, secure microcontroller.
The AT91SC series is a family of low power, high-performance 32-bit RISC secure MCU with ROM or flash program memory, advanced EEPROM data memory and powerful cryptographic accelerators. The products target applications that require high computing power, high-speed communication interfaces and seamless connection to very large memories.
Based on the ARM SC100 CPU, the AT91SC192192CT-USB features 192 Kbytes of flash program memory, 192 Kbytes of high-performance EEPROM (fast erase/write time, high endurance) and 24 Kbytes of RAM. Also included are a Full Speed USB 2.0 interface with 5 Endpoints, an SPI interface to communicate in an embedded system environment or to connect to a NOR flash and dedicated hardware to connect to a NAND flash.
The device is particularly well suited to build high-end secure e-Tokens and to be used in embedded systems where it can serve as a security module to prevent hardware counterfeiting, store secure data, provide authentication services, process digital rights management etc.
Fully compatible with the ROM-based AT91SC512384RCT, the AT91SC192192CT-USB also incorporates the standard ISO 7816 Smart Card and the emerging Single Wire Protocol (SWP) interfaces. This makes the AT91SC192192CT-USB a flexible flash alternative to its ROM sibling for smart card applications such as next-generation (U)SIM cards.
Pricing: Starts at US $8.84 for 10k units.
