Mouser supplies NXP’s security for IoT edge nodes
Distributor Mouser Electronics now stocks the A71CH secure element from NXP Semiconductors. A ready-to-use security solution for next-generation Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the A71CH provides a root of trust at the IC level to deliver chip-to-cloud security out of the box. Designers can connect to IoT clouds and services without writing security code of exposing keys with the A71CH. Target applications include connected industrial devices, sensor networks, IP cameras, smart home devices, home gateways, and smart cities.
The NXP A71CH IC provides secure, zero-touch connectivity for IoT devices. This encrypted and authenticated interface-to-host processor can be securely provisioned with the required credentials for autonomous cloud on-boarding and peer-to-peer authentication. Featuring security functionalities such as encrypted key storage, ECC key generation and signature verification, and an encrypted vault for product master secrets, the chip is designed to help protect private information and credentials for mutual authentication.
The A71CH is designed for easy integration of security and cloud on-boarding through host libraries, example codes and various application notes, as well as the A71CH Arduino compatible development kit. The kit includes an A71CH Mini PCB board and Arduino-compatible interface board that seamlessly connects to many NXP LPC, Kinetis, and i.MX boards to support microcontroller and microprocessor development.
