Sensors - The Lifeblood of the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interconnected computing devices, digital and mechanical components or even people provide with a unique identifier that has the ability to transfer data over a network that allows human to computer interactions. With the advent of IPv6, an IP addressing standard that can allow 340 trillion trillion trillion addresses, it has made possible for any device to connected to the Internet of Things ecosystem. Research firm IDC predicts it will become a $1.5 trillion international market by 2020, up from $700 billion in the year 2014. With that huge uptake in IoT, a robust system will only be possible if the devices used to transmit data provide utmost accuracy.

Merits of Hardware Cryptography over Software Cryptography stars

Cryptography is a method of storing and transmitting data in a particular form so that only those for whom it is intended can read and process it.  Cryptography uses ciphers to encrypt the information and later decrypt the same information to the intended receiver only.  Modern cryptography is heavily based on complex mathematical analysis and computer science.  The algorithm is designed to ensure computational hardness assumptions making it almost impossible for the unintended recipient to break it.

STMicroelectronics Simplifies Design-In of State-of-the-Art Security for the IoT

STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, has announced a strong yet easy-to-use secure element to protect connected devices in the consumer and industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and to prevent cloning or copying of genuine products by ensuring authenticity.Certified to the highest security industry standards, the new STSAFE-A100 can be designed-in by developers without specialist security expertise thanks to comprehensive support ecosystem.

Consumer devices, home appliances, industrial assets, and infrastructure controllers are already connected to the internet or will be soon. Many of them are designed to be autonomous and unattended. They now need state-of-the-art electronic security to prevent hackers from counterfeiting, cloning, stealing information, or misusing the equipment. ST’s new STSAFE-A100 is a secure turnkey solution that brings the Company’s proven expertise in electronic securityfor applications such as banking, e-commerce, and identity protection to the IoT. As a secure element that provides authentication services and can be used in conjunction with an ordinary microcontroller, it features an embedded secure operating system and is certified to Common Criteria EAL5+[1], banking-level security-industry standards.

IoT Developers Kit Based on NXP® i.MX 7D MPU and ROHM's BD71815GW PMIC

ROHM and eInfochips collaborate and demonstrate a small, energy-efficient real-time audio/video Smart camera application using the new iMX7D-based developers kit

Santa Clara, Calif., and Sunnyvale, Calif., – May 19, 2016 – ROHM and eInfochips today unveiled a live-streaming demo of a smart IoT camera reference design at the 2016 NXP FTF Technology Forum. 

The reference design combines a state-of-the-art System On Module (SOM) incorporating the NXP i.MX7 Dual applications processor and ROHM's BD71815GW Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC) with a baseboard that provides access to various sensors and peripherals via eInfochips' Software Development Kit (SDK), including MicroSD and USB slots that enable developers to store data and interface with external devices such as a WiFi module for streaming audio and video to a smartphone. The built-in battery allows the device work in any location without wiring for power, and an LCD interface is included for enabling two-way video that may be required for certain applications.

Microchip Introduces Hardware Cryptography-Enabled 32-bit Microcontroller for Internet of Things Applications

Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced a new hardware crypto-enabled 32-bit microcontroller. The CEC1302’s hardware-based cryptography suite offers significant performance improvements over firmware-based solutions. The CEC1302 makes it easy to add security to Internet of Things (IoT) devices, offering easy-to-use encryption and authentication for programming flexibility and increased levels of security. 

Security threats are increasing exponentially in terms of frequency, targeted devices, malignancy and costs of attacks. The CEC1302 allows for pre-boot authentication of the system firmware in order to ensure that the firmware is untouched and uncorrupted, thereby preventing security attacks such as man-in-the-middle, denial-of-service and backdoor vulnerabilities. It can also be used to authenticate any firmware updates, protecting the system from malware or memory corruption.

Cypress to Acquire Broadcom’s Wireless Internet of Things Business

$550 Million Acquisition to Reinforce Cypress’s Leadership in Embedded Systems Solutions and Broaden Its Footprint in the Fast-Growing IoT Market
