Summary

The CryptoAuthentication™ SOIC Xplained Pro Starter (CryptoAuth-XSTK) kit consists of a SAMD21-XPRO and an AT88CKSCKTSOIC-XPRO socket board along with Crypto Authentication sample devices.   The board works with Microchip's Crypto Evaluation Studio (ACES) out of the box and can be used for evaluation and development wih CryptoAuthentication Devices.  The kit supports all Crypto Authentication devices including the ATECC608A, ATECC508A, ATECC108A, ATSHA204A and the ATAES132A.  The kit can support I2C Interface devices, Single-Wire-Interface (SWI) devices, and devices with a SPI interface  by setting the appropriate switches on the socket board.   This board can be paired with the AT88CKSCKTUDFN-XPRO kit if so desired so that the UDFN package option can be used. 

The firmware in the kit will also work with ATCRYPTOAUTH-XPRO and ATCRYPTOAUTH-XPRO-B boards.   A maximum of 8 CryptoAuthentication devices can be detected with the firmware.

If so desired, an existing ATSAMD21-XPRO development kit can be reflashed with the firmware from this kit and combined with a a CryptoAuthentication Socket board to create the same functionality as the DM320109.  The Latest Firmware is located under the Documents and Software Tab.

CryptoAuthLib Python Modules

The DM320109 development kit can work with the Python CryptoAuthLib Module to facilitate system development without implementing a host microcontroller.  These tools can be found on the Python Software Foundation repositories.   The following link will take you to these tools: https://pypi.org/project/cryptoauthlib/    Additional tools can be found on the MicrochipTech GitHub repository.
