DeepCover Secure Arm Cortex-M3-Based Flash Microcontroller

Advanced cryptography and physical security for your connected embedded devices!

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


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

The DeepCover Secure microcontroller (MAX32510) provides an interoperable, secure, and cost-effective solution to build new generations of trusted devices. The MAX32510 includes an Arm® Cortex®-M3 core, 512KB of embedded flash, 96KB of system RAM, 1KB of battery-backed AES self-encrypted NVSRAM. It includes a cryptographic engine, a true random number generator, battery-backed RTC, environmental and tamper detection circuitry, and a smart card UART. It also includes a vast array of peripherals, such as I2C, USB, SPIs, UARTs, DMA, and ADC that add flexibility to control and differentiate the system design.

Thanks to its flexible architecture, the MAX32510 can be used as the main processor of an embedded device or as a coprocessor for applications that require more computing power. It can support the most frequent requirements for connected or standalone objects including secure key storage, secure boot, secure communications, certificates distribution and management as well as NVSRAM with instant content destruction capability which can support FIPS 140-2 level 3 or 4.
