Xplained Pro Evaluation Kits

A development tool for applications that protect confidential files, encrypt downloads, perform two-factor logons, authenticate products, and prevent software piracy. The starter kit includes an AVR baseboard (ATMicrobase) with a USB interface that lets designers learn and experiment on their PCs.

For the Xplained Pro (XPRO) series, the kit includes a daughterboard that interfaces to the AVR baseboard via a 10-pin or 20-pin header. The daughterboard configuration can be ordered with the 8-pin UDFN socket (MAH), the 8-pin SOIC socket (SSH), or the 3-lead SOT23 socket (TSU) which can support an CryptoAuthentication ATSHA204A, ATECC508A, or ATAES132A device (TSU not available for ATAES132A device).

The CryptoAuthentication Evaluation Studio (ACES), which can be used with this kit includes a configuration environment that allows the ability to configure, demonstrate, and personalize the CryptoAuthentication device. Software developed on the PC can serve as the base for code to be ported to an embedded microcontroller. Source code can be edited to integrate with ARM or other platforms.

This kit uses a modular approach, enabling the daughterboard to connect directly to a STK series AVR development platform to easily add security to applications. An optional adapter kit is available when the 10-pin header on the daughterboard requires a different pinout.

Note: The AT88CK101SK-RBH is a 3-lead contact socket and does not have the 20 pin XPRO header. No ATAES132A packages are available.
