Keywords:CryptoMemory dev kit? cryptographic memory? cryptographic algorithms?

Atmel Corp. released the AT88SC-DK1 development kit for their CryptoMemory, an advanced cryptographic family of memory products. Current CryptoMemory development requires developers to understand details of the cryptography and associated cryptographic algorithms of the CryptoMemory device to perform mutual authentication, data encryption and generation of encrypted Message Authentication Codes (MAC) for secure communication with the device. AT88SC-DK1 simplifies the application development process by providing a library which implements host cryptographic operations required for secure communication with CryptoMemory devices.

AT88SC-DK1 provides evaluation and demonstration capabilities when used in conjunction with Atmel's STK500, an AVR processor embedded development environment. This development kit serves Atmel's AT88SCxxxxC family of cryptographic memories, covering EEPROM densities from 1Kbit to256Kbits/s.

The kit includes a daughter board to adapt CryptoMemory to any existing embedded development environment with a two-wire interface and a development library containing a low-function-count API. The development library is delivered as a highly-decoupled binary-cryptographic core and a source-code interface for easy integration.

The solution is available now, with prices starting from $49 each.
