Is seems hardly a day passes without “secure” data being hacked. Whether personal photos, enterprise data or factory floor controls, data security has become a higher focus for many. Avnet’s new Trusted Platform Module (TPM) Security Peripheral Module for Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs enables a root of trust for platform integrity, remote attestation, and cryptographic services required for IIoT applications. This new solution supports additional use cases such as Device Identity, Secure Storage, Secure Communications, and Secure Firmware Upgrade.

The TPM Pmod adds security options to the Avnet Industrial IIoT Starter Kit. Avnet’s TPM Pmod and the IIoT Starter Kit include a variety of interconnect solution from Samtec including TSW series, SSW series, SSQ series and others.

Engineers are thinking about how to apply IoT connectivity to applications they work in for their industrial customers. “Wouldn’t it be great to have instant access to that sensor on the far side of the factory?” This is driving the Industrial IoT (IIoT) today.

Industrial wireless connectivity has traditionally been based on short-range wireless protocols for point-to-point applications. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth have become more popular in recent years. As the large mobile providers grow their 4G LTE networks, finding more customers becomes paramount. Industrial wireless connectivity via 4G LTE provides a new customer pool to wade into.

Avnet’s AT&T Cellular IoT Starter Kit includes various interconnect solution from Samtec such as SMA series, SSQ series and SSW series. Samtec’s broad portfolio of interconnect solutions are ideally suited for linking multiple PCB boards and RF signals commonplace in IIoT hardware.
