A wide variety of security devices from Maxim Integrated for medical disposables is available from Mouser. Including DeepCover secure authenticators and 1-Wire memory devices, the company's portfolio of security devices provides a layer of protection for medical devices incorporating single-use products, medication cartridges, surgical tools, and pulse-oximetry probes. The devices are also ideal for IoT node authentication and secure management of limited-use consumables.

The company's security devices for medical disposables protect medical devices against security breaches, counterfeiting, and unauthorised overuse. Providing both contact and contactless authentication solutions, the company’s security devices rely on challenge-response protocols to verify the identity of a device. The secure authenticators allow easy integration into embedded designs, helping to satisfy the demands for UDI as established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The company’s DS28C36 and DS28E36 DeepCover secure authenticators feature cryptographic tools derived from integrated symmetric and asymmetric security functions. The DS28E38 DeepCover secure authenticator is an ECDSA public key-based device and possesses their ChipDNA physically unclonable function technology to stop invasive physical attacks. The DS28E83 DeepCover 1-Wire authenticator provides high radiation resistance, allowing user programmable manufacturing or calibration data before medical sterilisation.
