STMicroelectronics (ST) has rolled out the first member of the third generation of its ST33 series of secure MCUs based on the 32bit ARM SecurCore SC300 processor. The ST33J2M0 claims to deliver the industry's largest (2MB) Flash programme memory, nearly doubling the memory available in a secure MCU.

Fully manufactured in ST's 40nm process technology for cost efficiency, the secure MCU includes the highest performance and integrated crypto-accelerators that together with the industry's fastest clock speed in a secure MCU, enabling the highest performance for fast application execution, boasted the company. It also features a hardware architecture with strong and multiple fault-protection mechanisms covering the CPU, memories and buses to facilitate the development of highly secure software.

The latest ST33 family addresses the growing need for secure applications including embedded Secure Element (eSE), Single Wire Protocol (SWP) SIMs for NFC applications, and embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card (UICC). These features are critical to protect transactions in areas as diverse as payment applications, the Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable consumer devices, to M2M communications in "Industry 4.0" factory automation as well as V2X and in-car communication applications.

The ST33J2M0 features multiple hardware accelerators for advanced cryptographic functions. The EDES peripheral provides a secure Data Encryption Standard (DES) algorithm implementation, while the NESCRYPT crypto-processor efficiently supports the public key algorithm. The AES peripheral ensures secure and fast AES algorithm implementation.

Samples of the ST33J2M0 are available as wafers or housed in VQFN and WLCSP packages.
