MAX32550 integrates all essential functions for secure mobile payment and pin pads

 The newest security key pad and smart card readers—E200NP and E200CP—from XACAutomation Corporation(Taiwan OTC: 5490),which incorporate the MAX32550 DeepCover®secure microcontrollerfrom Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM),have successfully passed the stringent PCI-PTS 4.1 certification requirements.

For PCI-PTS 4.1 certification, products must pass increased levels of differential power analysis and simple power analysis (DPA/SPA) attack testing. Maxim is the only supplier that provides a cryptographic library with sophisticated algorithm protection means, which allowed XAC’s productsto pass these extremely challengingDPA/SPA certification tests. Maxim also provides its customers with a security evaluation report from an independent laboratory that significantly helps reduce PCI-PTS certification time and costs.

The MAX32550 DeepCoversecure ARM® Cortex®-M3microcontroller integrates all the essential functions for secure mobile payment and pin pads, including cryptographic engine, true random number generator, battery-backed RTC, environmental and tamper detection circuitry, magnetic stripe reader, smart card controller with embedded transceiver to directly support 1.8V, 3.3V, and 5V cards, and integrated secure keypad controller.
