While Bluetooth® connectivity and support for the latest cellular networking technologies have become standard in most vehicles to the delight of consumers, this has also opened up an attractive target for hackers. Many real-world vehicle hacking stories and videos are available on the Internet, and virtually all OEMs in all regions have been negatively impacted by these attacks. Since the attack surface will certainly continue to grow as more connected vehicles hit the road, OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers are facing increasing pressure to find long-term solutions to secure in-vehicle networks.
Jump-start your application development with our TA100 8-pin SOIC and TA100 14-pin SOIC socket boards. These mikroBUS™ compatible socket boards can be used with the I2C and SPI versions of the TA100 device and can be easily plugged into one of our many development boards that feature a microBUS socket, including the Explorer 16/32 Development Board, the Automotive Networking Development Board and a variety of Curiosity and Curiosity Nano development boards. They can also be used with an mikroBUS Xplained Pro adapter board to connect them to Xplained Pro development boards. Example projects are available to demonstrate sample applications using the TA100. A suite of software tools is also available under NDA. Contact your Microchip sales office to request access to these tools.
