The PSoC™ 64 line incorporates all of the key features of PSoC™ 6 with preconfigured security and connectivity software to support secure onboarding, secure boot, secure firmware updates and secure runtime services based on Trusted Firmware-M (TF-M)
With a growing number of devices connecting to the internet, security must be established between hardware, cloud applications and servers, and finally users and services. PSoC™ 64 Secure MCUs integrate the award-winning, ultra-low power PSoC™ 6 architecture with well-structured open-source IoT platform software to deliver a secure solution that works.
The dual-core architecture of PSoC™ 6 is ideal for establishing isolated processing environments. The Cortex-M4 processor is used to establish a Non-Secure Processing Environment (NSPE) and the Cortex-M0+ is used to establish a Secure Processing Environment (SPE) through the use of protection units built into PSoC™ 6. Trusted Firmware-M running in the SPE communicates to the NSPE through a hardware-based Inter-Processor Interface (IPC). The root-of trust is isolated form the SPE and provides an immutable identity for the device and enables secure key storage. Security services include secure boot, provisioning, and attestation.
Infineon has partnered with secure programming hardware and secure service providers to deliver secure programming and provisioning services for PSoC™ 64 Secure MCUs. The Data I/O SentriX secure provisioning delivers secure IoT field provisioning for PSoC™ 64 SECURE MCUs to maintain supply-chain security. Arrow offers programming and provisioning services utilizing this platform.
