Infineon PSOC™ Edge E8x microcontrollers are the first devices designed to meet the new PSA Level 4 certification requirements

Munich, Germany– 10 April 2024 – With embedded security considered to be a vital aspect in deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) applications, Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) today announced that its new PSOC™ Edge E8x MCU product family has been designed to meet the highest certification level provided by the Platform Security Architecture (PSA) Certified program, a framework for embedded security. The PSA Certified Level 4 device certification is targeted by implementing an on-chip, hardware-isolated enclave that provides secured boot, key storage and crypto operations in all PSOC Edge E8x devices.

“By aspiring to achieve this robust embedded security certification, IoT designers for edge applications such as wearables and smart home applications can be confident their products can achieve highest levels of security,” said Erik Wood, Senior Director Product Security for IoT, Computer and Wireless business, Infineon Technologies. “Integrating hardware security on the MCU also unlocks new edge computing markets such as printers and payment terminals that previously required discrete security chips. As a security leader, we are committed to enabling designers to reach the highest level of security for all applications.”

PSA Certified is a security framework established by Arm and industry partners in 2019. It provides both design guidelines and independent security evaluations through third-party labs intended to assure that all connected devices are built upon a Root of Trust. PSA Certified certifications achieved by an MCU extend through the value chain, allowing device builders and application providers to reuse that certification as they deploy products in the field.

“Connected device security is critical to scaling IoT deployments, and something that Arm and its ecosystem is committed to continuing to drive through initiatives like PSA Certified,” said David Maidment, Senior Director, Secure Devices Ecosystem at Arm. “We applaud Infineon’s ongoing commitment to robust device security by striving to achieve PSA Certified Level 4 iSE/SE for its new family of MCUs.”

About the PSoC Edge Family

Infineon’s new PSOC Edge E81, E83 and E84 microcontrollers are based on the high-performance Arm Cortex®-M55, including Helium™ DSP support paired with Arm Ethos™-U55, and Cortex-M33 paired with Infineon’s ultra-low power NNLite — a proprietary hardware accelerator intended to accelerate neural networks. Optimized for machine-learning applications running on connected systems at the Internet edge, the fully-integrated system-on-chip devices allow designers to bring advanced artificial intelligence functionality to IoT and consumer applications.

As with all Infineon MCUs, the series is supported by Infineon’s ModusToolbox™ software platform, which provides a collection of development tools, libraries, and embedded runtime assets for a flexible and comprehensive development experience. ModusToolbox supports a wide range of use cases including consumer IoT, industrial, smart home, wearables, and many other applications.

USB Power Delivery: Power for Portable (and Other) Products
Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Bel
USB Type C power delivery was created to standardize medium and higher levels of power delivery but it also can support negotiations for multiple output voltage levels and is backward compatible with previous versions of USB. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Bruce Rose from Bel/CUI Inc. explore the benefits of USB Type C power delivery, the specific communications protocol of USB Type C power delivery, and examine why USB Type C power supplies and connectors are the way of the future for consumer electronics.
