Description

DeepCover® embedded security solutions cloak sensitive data under multiple layers of advanced physical security to provide the most secure key storage possible.

The MAX66301 DeepCover secure authenticator combines a highly integrated RFID reader for contactless communication at 13.56MHz and a SHA-3 secure authenticator coprocessor. The RFID IC reader covers both the ISO 14443 Type A and ISO 15693 standards. The authenticator coprocessor's engine is based on the FIPS 202 standard and supports secure challenge-and-response authentication when paired with peripherals such as the MAX66250 transponder. An embedded host processor can easily interface with the MAX66301 using its UART or SPI interface.
