Low-power device provides secure authentication

The A1006 Secure Authenticator IC from NXP Semiconductors is in stock at Mouser Electronics. This embedded security solution offers tamper-resistant authentication through an asymmetric public/private authentication protocol to help manufacturers prove the authenticity of genuine products and prevent damage from counterfeits.

The A1006 device is the industry’s smallest, lowest-power secure authenticator, with an active power consumption of just 500 μA in packages as small as 1mm × 1mm.

The NXP A1006 Secure Authenticator provides an outstanding level of security, while overcoming the challenges of performance, power consumption and solution footprint.

The device’s digitally signed certificates employ 224-bit ECDSA and SHA-224 digest hash, and authentication is performed in under 50 milliseconds. The A1006 authenticator provides a strong and effective option for device manufacturers, offering simple system integration and a flexible architecture communication, with the choice of single-wire or I2C interface.

Built in NXP’s secure manufacturing facilities, this IC delivers protection against a wide range of invasive and non-invasive attacks; the device’s industry-leading security features include TRNG, security sensors, and active shielding.

It offers a security platform ideal for a broad range of hardware and software, including smartphones, chargers, printer cartridges, medical devices, electric vehicle chargers, and embedded systems that require a strong security infrastructure.
