MAXREFDES44# MicroZed Quick Start Guide

By: Stewart Merkel

Abstract: This quick start guide provides the necessary steps for using the MAXREFDES44# and Avnet’s MicroZed evaluation board. The MAXREFDES44# subsystem provides a 1-Wire®-based reference design for securing Xilinx Zynq® system on a Chip (SoC) to protect IP and prevent attached peripheral counterfeiting without the need for secure key storage. This is accomplished by a Public/Private Key 1-Wire ECDSA challenge-response between the SoC and a DS28E35 secure authenticator with secure memory. Boards for purchase, hardware, and firmware design files provide complete system information for rapid prototyping and development.
