Rousset, FranceAtmel Corp. has replaced its AT90SC6404RT chip with the AT90SC9604RU secure microcontroller that it designed with additional ROM memory to allow its customers to implement sophisticated applications such as CPA (Common Platform Application) for the EMV banking, SDA (Static Data Authentication) market. The AT90SC9604RU secure MCU is also well-suited for cost sensitive applications such as low end contact bank cards.
Based on Atmel's optimized 8-/16-bit RISC SecureAVR(R) CPU architecture, the AT90SC9604RU features on-chip high density, compact memories: 4 Kbytes EEPROM, 96 Kbytes of user-ROM, and 2 Kbytes of RAM. This product has been designed to meet the security standards of Common Criteria EAL4+ and EMVCo. It shares the same common features with Atmel's secureAVR family, including strong security mechanisms, a DES/TDES processor, a true random number generator, DFA/DPA/SPA resistant, firewalls and environmental protections to name just a few.
Pricing: Starts at $0.67 for 10,000-unit quantities.
Availability: Samples are available now; production will start in the second quarter of 2007.
