Infineon Technologies has released the 40nm SLC36/SLC37 security controller platforms with high-performance and energy-efficient 32-bit ARM SecurCore SC300 dual-interface security chips. The new hardware platform is enhanced with a SOLID Flash memory and is available optionally with or without the latest application solutions. The product families are supplied complete with a full array of dual interface and contactless modules, including traditional and inductive coupling technologies.
The crypto controller platform provides excellent performance and versatility for contactless payment, ID, ticketing, and access applications. The company especially supports the growing trend towards digital and connected devices that satisfy the latest cryptographic demands for AES and ECC. Contactless transactions can be assuredly secured, and at the same time, transaction times can be reduced further. This also qualifies the 40nm technology platform as a basis for SECORA solutions, particularly for payment, IoT, and ID applications.
“With the increasing demand for contactless ID, transit and payment transactions, high-performance smart security architectures and products are required to withstand the ever more stringent security requirements of post-quantum security while maintaining high contactless performance,” said Ioannis Kabitoglou, senior vice president and general manager Smart Card Solutions at Infineon. “We have leveraged our know-how and cross-industry expertise in security and PQC design to develop, qualify and certify the next generation of the leading dual-interface security controller. With the 40 nm platform, we have been able to reduce development efforts for our customers through accelerated product and solution design and enable rapid time-to-market.”
