New Product Introduction

Trust Platform for the CryptoAuthentication™ Family

Microchip simplifies hardware-based IoT security with the industry’s first pre-provisioned solutions for deployments of any size.

Microchip MC1479 Trust Platform chip - front and back side

For deployments of as few as ten units to up to many thousands of devices, Microchip's Trust Platform is a cost-effective and flexible solution for onboarding secure elements in your design and accelerating your product’s time to market. The Trust Platform is composed of a family of pre-provisioned, pre-configured or fully customizable secure elements. Credentials are generated inside each secure element’s boundary by leveraging the Hardware Secure Modules (HSMs) that are installed in our factories.

The devices also come with hardware and software development tools to make prototyping easy and to fast track your development. The Trust Platform offers three tiers of secure elements - Trust&GO, TrustFLEX and TrustCUSTOM - to provide you with the options and flexibility to meet the requirements of your company’s security model.

When you use Microchip's Trust Platform, you will optimize your overall provisioning logistic costs by benefitting from an existing and amortized HSM infrastructure integrated into our factories. Generally, it is financially and technically challenging for third-party contractors that offer provisioning services to provide an efficient and cost-effective model, especially for smaller orders. When you leverage the provisioning service along with the Trust&GO, TrustFLEX or TrustCUSTOM secure elements, you can select the option that best meets your current needs, and then scale as your business or market share spreads across the globe. Trust&GO has a minimum orderable quantity of just ten units, making it easy for you to get started on a small scale.
