StarChip's new SCM family of secure SIM controllers for M2M markets is based on the Cortus APS3s 32-bit core, enabling 20Mips@20MHz across an extended range of temperatures (-40°C to +105°C). The new controllers are designed to provide a combination of flexibility and extended performance with large data retention (>25years) and best-in-class endurance (up to 2 billion cycles) to deliver a robust design suitable for harsh environments.
SCM models SCM320G and SCM288G are fully flash-based, code and data with SST SuperFlash enhanced by E3 (ECUBE) proprietary mechanisms. Both devices are available in VQFN8 package compliant to ETSI TS 102 671 or can be delivered in tested sawn dice on frame.
The SCM320G is sampling now and will be delivered in mass production in October 2011 in VQN8 package, wafer form, or sawn dice on frame. For more information, contact StarChip Sales at email@example.com or visit www.starchip-ic.com.
