The Level 2 certification for the Infineon PSoC64 microcontrollers  includes a laboratory evaluation of the PSA Root of Trust (PSA-RoT) to provide evidence that devices can protect against scalable software attacks. The evaluation labs use vulnerability analysis and penetration testing of the PSA-RoT to establish if the nine security requirements of the PSA-RoT Protection Profile have been met.

Infineon’s PSoC64 secured MCUs were one of the first ARM Cortex-M processors to be certified as PSA Level 1-compliant. The certification allows developers of IoT systems to use threat models, security analyses, hardware and firmware architecture specifications. The PSoC 64 MCUs are suited to cloud-connected applications that require protection of user data and trustworthy firmware updates, including personal healthcare devices and home security systems.

“As a leader in IoT and security solutions, we are excited to pass the rigorous lab testing for the PSA Level 2 certification,” said Erik Wood, Director of IoT Secure MCU Products, Infineon Technologies. “This next-level of certification further assures our IoT solution developers that their smart, connected devices are built on a secured foundation, in line with PSA. Additionally, this certification builds on our secured platform, making customers’ lives simpler, and more secured.”

The PSoC 6 architecture is built on 40nm process technology with low-power design techniques to extend battery life up to a full week for secured wearables. A choice of dual-core ARM Cortex-M4 or Cortex-M0+ architecture lets designers optimize for power and performance simultaneously.

Designers can use the software-defined peripherals to create custom analog front-ends (AFEs) or digital interfaces for innovative system components such as electronic-ink displays. The PSoC 6 MCU also features the latest generation of Infineon’s industry-leading CapSense capacitive-sensing technology, enabling modern touch and gesture-based interfaces that are robust and reliable.

The Infineon PSoC 64 devices are available now.
