Future Electronics Targets Embedded Systems Security with GoodLock Development Board

For Immediate Release:

Summary:

Future Electronics is targeting the increased demands for embedded system security through the GoodLock Development Board.

Press Release:

Montreal, Canada – June 3, 2020 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is addressing possible embedded security vulnerabilities with their GoodLock development board, based on Microchip security features.

The Future Electronics GoodLock development board leverages Microchip features for the onboarding of secure elements in embedded system security designs.

The GoodLock board is based on Microchip’s SAM11 ARM Cortex-M23 low power 32-bit microcontroller and integrates Microchip’s flexible Trust Shield Platform for the onboarding of secure elements in embedded system designs. It can also enable discovery of different technologies related to hardware security.

The Microchip Trust Shield Platform consists of their SAM D21 microcontroller configured as the main MCU and comes pre-programmed with their Secure Products Group (SPG) kit protocol. This protocol facilitates the communication between the CryptoAuthentication devices ATECC608A-TFLXTLS (TrustFLEX) and the host MCU over the USB HID interface, adding multiple embedded systems security layers to prevent possible Cyber Security threats.

In the last decade, various components have shifted to become smaller, faster and more powerful. As a result, Cyber Attacks have become more frequent and the need for advanced security features has increased, which requires Cyber Security support, design expertise and component selection all offered by Future Electronics.

Microchip M2S Hello FPGA Kit Featured in The Edge by Future Electronics

For Immediate Release:

Summary:

Future Electronics is featuring the Microchip M2S Hello FPGA developer kit in the latest edition of The Edge.

Press Release:

Montreal, Canada – April 21, 2020 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is featuring the Microchip M2S Hello FPGA developer kit in this month’s edition of The Edge.

This low cost, compact sized field-programmable gate array (FPGA) knowledge kit is backed by Microchip’s SmartFusion®2 FPGA with its leading embedded Flash-based Arm® Cortex®-M3 processor. It is an entry-level platform for anyone with low to medium FPGA knowledge. The platform is used in communications, industrial, defense and aviation markets.

The Hello FPGA kit allows the development of many applications – simple or complex – ranging from data ac­quisition and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to image and signal processing. The kit allows users to freeze the design while maintaining the I/O state for low-power applications, using Flash Freeze mode. The Hello FPGA board also includes a Microchip PIC32 MCU that is used to monitor power, program the SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA, and perform general housekeeping functions.

It also comes with Arduino and mikroBUS™ connectors to support additional expansion boards for even more prototyping capabilities. This makes the platform serviceable as a standalone unit or as an extension to existing Microchip kits over the PICkit™ Header.
