Maxim Integrated Products introduces the MAXQ1103, a high-performance 32bit RISC MCU for the financial terminal market. The MAXQ1103 integrates security supervisory features, advanced encryption acceleration, and 1Kbyte internal non-volatile memory (NVSRAM) around a 32bit MAXQ MCU core. With this high integration, the MAXQ1103 simplifies and protects designs that require a high level of physical and logical security, such as financial terminals, government security applications, and digital rights management.

A secure application's primary function is to protect secrets, and the MAXQ1103 does this better than any device available on the market. The MAXQ1103 is resistant to side-channel attacks and physical attacks, and provides many options for application-specific tamper detection.

The MAXQ1103's combination of NVSRAM for secret storage, tamper-detection technology, and hardware encryption accelerators makes it the best choice for applications requiring PCI, FIPS 140-2, Common Criteria, or other security certifications, claims Maxim.

The MAXQ1103 is available in 144-pin TQFP and 144-pin CSBGA packages. It operates over the -40C to +70C commercial temperature range. A version that operates over the industrial (-40C to +85C) temperature range will follow in a few months. Evaluation kits and software libraries are available to help move quickly from concept to prototype to finished product. Prices start at $12.00 (1,000-up, FOB USA).
