New PIC24F Family with eXtreme Low Power and Hardware Crypto Engine

Summary

With the Internet of Things growing at a rapid rate, protecting embedded data and extending battery life are not an option, but a necessity. Devices in Microchip’s new PIC24F “GB2” family are the first PIC® MCUs to offer an integrated hardware crypto engine along with eXtreme low power (XLP) performance. This new family also features a True Random Number Generator (RNG) and One-Time-Programmable (OTP) key storage for protecting data in embedded applications. For connectivity, the “GB2” family integrates USB for device or host connections as well as a UART with ISO7816 support, which is helpful for smart card applications.
