CryptoRF Reader

The CryptoRF Reader Chip performs all RF communication, packet formatting, decoding, and communication error checking at the host. It is based on the ISO/IEC 14443-2 Type B signal modulation scheme and ISO/IEC 14443-3 Type B frame format, used by more than 60 percent of RFID host readers in the industry. Data is exchanged half duplex at a 106Kbps rate. A 2-byte CRC_B provides communication error detection capability. The chip can be used with both RFID transponders and contactless smart cards, and is compatible with 3.3V and 5V host microcontrollers with 2-wire or SPI serial interfaces. This highly integrated reader IC requires fewer external components than competing RFID reader chips, resulting in lower costs. It is available in one of the smallest packages available today: a 6mm x 6mm, 36-pin QFN.

Software Libraries

Microchip Hardware-TLS Platform 
Microchip Hardware-TLS software libraries for wolfSSL and OpenSSL enable hardware-based elliptic curve mutual authentication for TLS using the ATECC508A Crypto co-processor. With Microchip HW-TLS support libraries, system designers using wolfSSL or OpenSSL can take advantage of Microchip Crypto hardware to enable strong mutual authentication between communicating devices as well as store keys, certificates and other sensitive data in a protected hardware storage.
