The CryptoAuth Trust Platform is a compact hardware evaluation kit that can be used with the Trust Platform Development Suite (TPDS) and other software tools.
This kit is used for exploring and implementing solutions for the IoT space with a pre-provisioned ATECC608B Trust&GO, pre-configured ATECC608B TrustFLEX and fully customizable ATECC608B TrustCUSTOM products. The Trust&GO and TrustFLEX products have been developed to allow for an easy way to add hardware security to IoT Cloud solutions, accessory authentication, IP Protection, and firmware verification. Using these kits with the Microchip development tools and Microchip provisioning systems allows for even low volume projects to easily and readily implement secure authentication into their application. The user guide provides a physical overview of connections, components and switch settings implemented on the board.
The CryptoAuth Trust Platform consists of ATSAMD21E18A that is the main MCU which comes pre-programmed with Microchip`s Secure Product Group (SPG) kit protocol. This protocol takes care of the communication between the CryptoAuthentication devices and the host MCU over the USB HID interface. The data transfer between the secure elements and the host MCU is indicated by the Status LED.
Each of the secure element has a different I2C address that enables its communication with the host MCU hence eliminating line contention issues.
