Atmel Corp. has designed the AT90SC9604RU secure MCU with additional ROM capacity to allow its customers to implement sophisticated applications such as common platform application for the EMV banking, static data authentication market. The AT90SC9604RU secure MCU that replaced AT90SC6404RT chip is well-suited for cost sensitive applications such as low end contact bank cards.

Based on Atmel's optimised 8-/16bit RISC SecureAVR CPU architecture, AT90SC9604RU features on-chip high density, compact memories: 4KB EEPROM, 96KB of user-ROM, and 2KB of RAM. This product has been designed to meet the security standards of Common Criteria EAL4+ and EMVCo. It shares the same common features with Atmel's secureAVR family, including strong security mechanisms, a DES/TDES processor, a true random number generator, DFA/DPA/SPA resistant, firewalls and environmental protections to name just a few.

Samples are available now with volume production to start in Q2 '07. Pricing starts at Rs.27.38 (67 cents) for 10,000-unit quantities.
