Low Power Microcontroller With Increased IoT Security
This year at the Sensors Expo in Rosemont, IL, editor-in-chief, David Mantey sat down with Microchip's Alexis Alcott to discuss the expansion of their eXtreme Low Power PIC microcontrollers with the PIC24F "GB2" family.
This new family features an integrated hardware crypto engine, a Random Number Generator and One-Time-Programmable key storage, and with several integrated security features, the new family is designed to protect data in portable embedded applications.
With the rapid adoption of the Internet of Things, this device offers up to 128 KB Flash and 8 KB RAM in small 28- or 44-pin packages, for battery-operated or portable applications, such as IoT sensor nodes, access control systems, and door locks.
