Swissbit to highlight security-enabled memory at embedded world

New Products |
By Christoph Hammerschmidt

Such storage devices offer the possibility of providing legally secure and retrofittable protection for data and communication with little effort. The latest products from the Swissbit security product family are the PS-46 as pSLC SD Memory Card and a USB memory module with the option for a protected ROM memory function.


Just in time for the embedded world, Swissbit’s SD and microSD card series with security functions – PS-45u and PS-450u – are being expanded: With the PS-46, a further SD Memory Card complements the program. The new card offers an interesting compromise between cost and lifetime, because as a pseudo-SLC it uses inexpensive MLC-NAND chips and achieves a 6.7-fold lifetime with half the memory size. Swissbit’s security products are used in tap-proof telephones, police body cams, industrial/PLCs and most recently also in cash registers – at the embedded world stand, Swissbit will be presenting examples of these and other applications.

In this way, a GoPro video camera from the consumer area can be transformed into a copy-protected video documentation tool without having to change the camera using a password-protected SD card from Swissbit. Dashcams, body cameras, SLR or surveillance cameras are turned into secure devices. Data of any kind automatically becomes forgery-proof documentation with the help of secure WORM SD cards or USB sticks. In addition to protection against overwriting, WORM memories also offer device-internal hash concatenation with the option for data signature. Swissbit demonstrates how boot processes and user data can be protected by hardware on various single-board computers such as Arduino, ESP32, Wandboard and RaspBerry Pi. This is particularly interesting in view of the fact that from mid-2018, the requirements of the DSGVO and EU GDPR will apply to system providers. Swissbit storage solutions with Secure Element address other important and forward-looking applications and provide embedded systems with a unique ID.

Visitors of embedded world will find Swissbit in Hall 1, Stand 1-534.
