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.
