Atmel's AT90SC256144RCFT Secure Microcontroller Qualified by FIME for ePassport Applications

ROUSSET, France, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Atmel(R) Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML) announced today that FIME, an external and independent third party laboratory, has certified that Atmel's AT90SC256144RCFT secure microcontroller is compliant with ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) and ISO14443 specifications (contactless interface for smart cards). The FIME report is available from Atmel upon request.

Jean-Pierre Enguent, Atmel's Product Manager for contactless products stated, "The FIME report shows that Atmel fulfills all technical requirements for ePassport and ID applications. Moreover, the AT90SC256144RCFT provides extended RF capabilities, excellent computational performance and low power consumption allowing up to 40 MIPS at 1.5 A/m which is the low field strength limit in ISO14443 standard. The product targets applications such as Extended Access Control within the ePassport program.

In addition, this secureAVR(R)-based microcontroller also targets Common Criteria EAL5+ certification and a strong interoperability performance has already been proven during international plug test forums."

The product will be showcased at this year's Cartes tradeshow in Paris (Atmel booth: 4 J 014), and is a candidate for Sesames 2007 Best in Hardware.

Availability and Pricing

AT90SC256144RCFT samples are available now. Pricing starts at US $3.50 for 10k units.
