Atmel Corp. unveiled a new member of its AT90SC family of secure microcontrollers (MCUs) featuring 288KB EEPROM, 320KB of user-ROM and 8KB of RAM.

Combining advanced technologies and an optimized architecture, the AT90SC320288RCT can run at high speed and be compliant with the most stringent industry standards such as mobile phone specifications, the company said.

Benoit Makowka, Atmel's marketing manager for smart card wireless applications said, "The concept of this product family is to allow developers to re-use existing OS/application software and get immediate access to a product featuring 288KB of EEPROM memory with minimum effort."

Targeting high security markets, the AT90SC32088RCT is designed to meet Common Criteria EAL5+ and Visa Level3 requirements. Like most of the AT90SC SecureAVR products, this device features true random number generator, a unique chip ID, memories encryption, Memory Protection Unit, active shield protection, countermeasures against SPA, DPA, glitches and side channel attacks, as well as voltage, frequency, temperature and light protections.

And in addition to the high speed high security DES/3DES engine, the AdvX high performance cryptographic accelerator and it's embedded firmware (located in an additional 32KB dedicated-ROM) supports standard finite fields arithmetic functions, including RSA, DSA, DH, ECC and AES.

"We believe that this introduction will create unique opportunities, for mobile network operators, to extend an existing product portfolio and bring new products with value-added services, quickly into the market," Makowka added.
