Maxim introduced a new microcontroller MAX32558 to Deliver Advanced Cryptography, Secure Key Storage and Tamper Detection in a 50% Smaller Package. The microcontroller IC, newest member of the Maxim’s DeepCover family of secure microcontrollers, intended to be used in sensitive industrial, consumer, computing and internet of things (IoT) devices; provide a fast and efficient way to build in secure cryptographic operations, integrate key storage and enable active tamper detection.
With electronic products becoming smaller and interconnected, there is a growing threat to sensitive information and privacy, requiring manufacturers to keep security top priority while designing their products. These challenges are addressed by MAX32558 DeepCover Arm® Cortex®-M3 flash-based secure microcontroller by delivering strong security in a small footprint while simplifying design integration and speeding time to market. It integrates several security features into a small package, including secure key storage, a secure bootloader, active tamper detection and secure cryptographic engines. Moreover, it also supports multiple communications channels such as USB, serial peripheral interface (SPI), universal asynchronous receiver-transmitter (UART) andI2C, making it ideal for a wide range of applications.
The MAX32558 microcontroller chip as well as evaluation kit is available at Maxim’s website.
