FIME has certified the Atmel Corp.'s AT90SC28880RCFV secure microcontroller to be compliant with ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) RF specifications and ISO 14443 RF.

The secure MCU successfully passed FIME's demanding test plan for ISO 14443 conformity, which not only covers 10373-6 test plan for PICCs but goes beyond that scope to better ensure conformity to the 14443 specifications. In addition, an extended test session at FIME laboratory shows up to 100 percent interoperability with a list of 32 readers during banking evaluation.

"The FIME reports further illustrate that Atmel satisfies all technical requirements for e-Passport and ID applications. The Atmel AT90SC28880RCFV chip provides extended RF capabilities, excellent computational performance and low-power consumption to allow up to 30 MIPS and 1024 RSA computations in 80ms at 1.5A/m," said Jean-Pierre Enguent, application manager for contactless products, Atmel. "The product targets applications including Extended Access Control within e-Passport programs and governmental ID cards. In addition, the Atmel secureAVR-based microcontroller is designed to be Common Criteria EAL5+ certified."

Atmel's AT90SC28880RCFV samples are available in DIL packages and dual-interface micromodules.
