Secure MCUs Deliver Cyber Safety To Connected Cars

According to the company, its ST32G512A and ST33G1M2A secure microcontrollers (MCUs) protect cars connected to the Internet from web-based attacks that can steal personal data or compromise important vehicle systems. The devices are qualified to the automotive quality standard AEC-Q100. In the connected car, the secure microcontroller handles authentication in a similar way to a smartphone’s SIM. Additional security implemented by unalterable hardware in the ST33G1M2A allows use as an embedded Secure Element that provides a root of trust for preventing attacks on vehicle Engine Control Units (ECUs) and gateways. In addition to connected-car applications, the MCUs are suitable for a variety of M2M communications in harsh environments, such as industrial networking and asset monitoring. Engineers can port software already qualified on compatible previous-generation devices (ST32/ST33), to streamline development and reduce time to market. Datasheets are available at:
