Atmel launched the VaultIC family of security modules for applications including femtocells, smart meters, telehealth, USB token, and gaming platforms. The VaultIC460 security module provides a secure microcontroller with multiple interfaces and bundled firmware. The Atmel VaultIC family offers developers a banking-type security solution by embedding firmware, hardware, and complex cryptography into a module. VaultIC460 samples are available now in SOIC8 and QFN44 packages.
The new VaultIC family is based Atmel’s AT90SO secureAVR microcontrollers. They enable higher levels of security and provides a secure turnkey solution for system designers. The VaultIC460 features 128KB of fully configurable EEPROM memory to store user data and match any security architecture.
The VaultIC family offers designers enhanced functionality, a new interface with rapid computation of all standard cryptography algorithms, and higher security to protect both the keys and data. These products are designed to meet Common Criteria EAL4+ and FIPS 140-2 level 3 certifications to provide high security, performance and lower power consumption.
