SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 4, 2019 – Intrinsic ID, the world’s leading provider of digital authentication technology for Internet of Things security, today announced that NXP® Semiconductors has integrated Intrinsic ID’s IoT security technology in its LPC55Sxx family of secure microcontrollers. NXP leverages Intrinsic ID’s SRAM PUF (physical unclonable function) based products to incorporate hardware root of trust IP in its high-volume, low-power microcontrollers and crossover processors.
The integration of Intrinsic ID’s IoT security technology with NXP’s LPC55Sxx family of low-power microcontrollers, followed by the i.MX RT600 high-performance crossover processor, extends Intrinsic ID’s relationship with NXP as part of a strategic collaboration between the companies. This enables NXP to deploy Intrinsic ID technology to authenticate IoT devices by creating secure root key generation, anchoring device-to-cloud authentication, software IP protection, and end-to-end encryption across its entire microcontroller portfolio.
“Intrinsic ID’s innovative PUF IP fits into the NXP microcontroller strategy of delivering root-of-trust in IoT applications where product authentication and cloning protection is essential,” said Joe Yu, vice president of the microcontroller business at NXP. “Integrating Intrinsic ID’s SRAM PUF IPs in our microcontrollers enables easy-to-use provision tools to make security deployment and product management simple for our customers.”
Intrinsic ID’s hardware IP product, QuiddiKey, replaces traditional OTP-plus-key-injection approaches to IoT security, delivering advantages in security robustness, reduced total cost of ownership and ease of provisioning.
“I am very pleased about our wide-reaching engagement with NXP,” said Pim Tuyls, chief executive officer of Intrinsic ID. “We value NXP’s many years of technical and business collaboration to elevate security robustness and reliability for high-volume markets. We look forward to helping NXP expand its leadership position as the secure MCU provider for the IoT with deployment of Intrinsic ID technology across a broad spectrum of IoT verticals.”
