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.

CIPOS Mini IPMs and OPTIGA Trust M Security from Infineon Featured in FTM by Future Electronics

Summary: Future Electronics is featuring Infineon’s CIPOS Mini Intelligent Power Modules and the OPTIGA Trust M security solution in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine.

Montreal, Canada – January 02, 2020 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is featuring intelligent power modules and IoT security solutions from Infineon in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine (FTM).

Infineon’s energy-efficient CIPOS Mini Intelligent Power Modules (IPMs) integrate the power and control components of an inverter, motor or Power Factor Correction (PFC) power stage in a single package, enabling designers to achieve higher reliability and to optimize PCB size and system cost.

The high level of integration in a CIPOS Mini IPM simplifies the design of power systems and markedly shortens time to market. These IPMs may be used to control AC motors in variable-speed drives consuming up to 3kW.

Infineon’s new OPTIGA Trust M solution helps manufacturers of IoT devices connected to cloud-computing services to enhance the security of their products while also improving system performance.

The OPTIGA Trust M SLS32AIA series, a single-chip security controller solution, stores unique device credentials, and enables devices to connect to the cloud up to ten times faster than software-only alternatives.

When embedded in an IoT end-point device, an SLS32AIA chip can enable security functions including mutual authentication, secure communication, data store protection, lifecycle management, power management, secure updates and platform integrity protection.

Infineon’s Shield2Go board for the OPTIGA Trust M security chip supports fast evaluation and development of IoT end-point devices which require secure cloud connections. It features one OPTIGA Trust M security chip on an easy-to-handle PCB.

Design engineers can build systems by combining multiple Shield2Go boards with the Infineon My IoT adapter board. The adapter board is compatible with the Arduino form factor, and enables fast development in a familiar project environment.

Future Technology Magazine is the flagship publication of Future Electronics, and is geared toward engineers and buyers looking to keep up with the latest developments in the industry. FTM comes out eight times per year, and each issue is packed with new product information, application notes, and detailed technical views from Future’s Advanced Engineers and other industry experts.
