Embedded Security

embeddedsecurity_lockbrainiconIn today’s vast interconnected world, the need to provide greater security within a customer’s product or system is quickly becoming a standard requirement. To stay one step ahead of the criminal element and prevent theft of software/hardware intellectual property and data or communications services, customers today are designing their products with an eye on providing more complex systems.

Markets such as automotive, medical, consumer, wireless and commercial systems have implemented a variety of approaches to providing security. Microchip brings together both cryptographic and non-cryptographic pieces to build a total solution. Remember, nothing is 100% secure, system designers must implement multiple techniques to make their system as difficult as possible to break.
