The K8x MCU family offers the security, scalability, and flexibility to address the challenges of creating smart devices for the Internet of Tomorrow.

The high-performance Kinetis K8x ARM® Cortex®-M4 MCU family builds upon the Kinetis microcontroller portfolio with advanced security capabilities including boot ROM to support encrypted firmware updates, automatic decryption from external serial NOR flash memory, hardware AES acceleration built with side band attack protection, and hardware support for public key cryptography. The Kinetis K8x MCU family also integrates 8 KB code and 8 KB system cache, 256 KB of embedded SRAM and flash, USB full-speed, low-power peripherals and a quad SPI serial flash interface.

The Kinetis K81 MCU extends the Kinetis MCU portfolio with advanced security capabilities including anti-tamper peripheral, boot ROM to support encrypted firmware updates, automatic decryption from external serial flash memory, AES acceleration with side band attack protection, and hardware support for public key cryptography. The K81 MCU can be used to meet the security standards for point-of-sale (PoS) applications.
