Cypress Processing Solution with Built-in System Layer Security Fortifies IoT Application Design
This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190226005439/en/
PSoC 64 Secure MCUs are one of the first Arm® Cortex®-M
processors to be certified as Level 1 compliant within the Arm Platform
Security Architecture (
“User privacy and data protection are becoming ever more critical for
IoT devices, especially with governments around the world passing new
legislation to protect the public,” said
“In a world of a trillion connected devices, trust is essential, and
it’s our industry’s responsibility to enable this trust,” said
The line of PSoC 64 Secure MCUs is supported in Cypress’ ModusToolbox™ suite, which will allow designers to select the system firmware of secure IoT platforms—such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Arm Pelion™ and Alibaba—to develop their application, and then configure and verify their secure boot images. The MCUs include a hardware-based root-of-trust consisting of secured storage and firmware, establishing a command-based set of trusted services. The root-of-trust includes hardware accelerated cryptography, as well as true random number generation (TRNG). The ModusToolbox suite brings best-in-class connectivity, processing, sensing, and security together in a unified environment, providing open access to third-party solutions, freeing engineers to focus on delivering high-value, differentiated products.
Cypress’ IoT Portfolio at Embedded World
Cypress is demonstrating its PSoC 64 Secure line of MCUs, along with its
complete embedded systems solution portfolio, here at the Embedded World
2019 trade show in hall 4A, stand 148 of the Nuremberg Exhibition Center
About PSoC 6 MCUs
The PSoC 6 architecture is built on an ultra-low-power 40-nm process technology, and the MCUs feature low-power design techniques to extend battery life up to a full week for wearables. The dual-core Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Cortex®-M0+ architecture lets designers optimize for power and performance simultaneously. Designers can use the MCU’s software-defined peripherals to create custom analog front-ends (AFEs) or digital interfaces for innovative system components such as electronic-ink displays. The PSoC 6 MCU features the latest generation of Cypress’ industry-leading CapSense® capacitive-sensing technology, enabling modern touch and gesture-based interfaces that are robust and reliable.
Cypress’ PSoC 64 Secure MCUs with SecureBoot will be sampling the first quarter of 2019, and additional variations are planned for the second quarter of 2019.
