Atmel Debuts secureAVR RISC Microcontroller with 32Mega-bit Flash

4/2/2003 - Atmel® Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) announced that it is sampling a secureAVRTM RISC Microcontroller with 32Mega-bit Flash. This product is based on the AT90SC3232CS (secureAVR processor, 32Kbytes Flash, 32Kbytes EEPROM) with in addition 32Mega-bit of Flash for very efficient and secure data storage. The AT90SC3232CS-F32M is a unique and innovative solution that combines programmability and processing power with a very large Flash memory. With the AT90SS3232CS-F32M, mobile communication operators have access to a powerful product for emerging applications with an important secure memory in a SIM card. For other applications, wherever any system requires a large amount of data to be protected, the AT90SC3232CS-F32M provides a highly secure, high memory capacity solution.

The AT90SC3232CS-F32M offers all of the AT90SC3232CS features, a flexible secure microcontroller using Flash program memory to satisfy a user's code modification requirements. For example, its state-of-the-art security features that make it resistant against the most aggressive hardware or software attacks and its powerful cryptography capabilities (Elliptic Curves hardware support, fast DES/TDES and fast RSA processor). It is designed to meet Common Criteria EAL4+ security certification. The AT90SC3232CS-F32M is available in a 3V version, as well as 5V, and can be delivered in module form or in package form.

Herve Roche, Smart Card IC Marketing Manager stated, " The content protection barrier is being surpassed. The AT90SC3232CS-F32M is the industry's first high-end secure microcontroller with this type of large Flash memory capacity. The other great performance is the availability of this outstanding product for the smart card market with deliveries in module form. For example the ITSO's (Interoperable Transport Smartcard Organization) secure access module has been developed with the AT903232CS-F32M in a standard SIM format".

Since March 2003, the AT90SC3232CS-F32M is available in engineering samples. The price for 1000 units is $20.
