Atmel Corp. has announced that the AT91S0100 and its derivatives have been granted Common Criteria certification EAL4+. This vulnerability assessment corresponds to the highest proven resistance against any security attack (AVA_VLA4). The AT91SO family is compliant with EMV and PCI PED standards.

The AT91SO100 is the first secure microcontroller platform for electronic transaction terminals that has been awarded a Common Criteria EAL4+ certification, says Atmel. Devices with this certification are ideal for applications such as e-payment, e-government, identity and IP protection.

Based on the ARM SecurCore SC100 CPU, the AT91SO100 features 256Kbytes of EEPROM program and data memory and 100Kbytess of RAM. It offers a set of cryptographic features, the AdvX crypto accelerator, strong security mechanisms, firewalls, environmental protections (mesh, switches, secure packages) and backup area (RTC, master keys).

"Being awarded the Common Criteria EAL4+ Certification enhances our leadership in the secure MCU market," commented David Richetto, Atmel's marketing manager for embedded security.
