CryptoAuthentication™ Memory Tokens

CryptoAuthentication™ Memory Tokens

Datakey CryptoAuthentication™ memory tokens take Microchip’s ATSHA204A and ATECC608A high-security hardware authentication ICs and repackage them into a rugged portable memory device. The memory tokens can be used for the secure storage/transfer of keys, certificates and passwords. They can also be used as secure credential along with many other applications. The tokens feature:

  • Security Features like a unique serial number, multiple secure data slots, one-time programmable memory, usage-tracking counters, secure host-memory token authentication, random number generator, support for symmetric and asymmetric encryption algorithms and more.
  • Ultra-rugged Construction – CryptoAuthentication™ tokens are solid over-molded using a durable composite, making them impervious to liquids and virtually crush-proof.
  • Redundant Contacts – With contacts on both sides of the memory token it is impossible to insert it “upside-down.”
  • Branding Options – The tokens are available in six standard colors and come in standard and extended lengths. The extended length token can be OEM-branded with a molded-in logo.

Receptacles for CryptoAuthentication™ Tokens

CryptoAuthentication™ memory tokens mate with Datakey board-mount and panel-mount SlimLine™ receptacles. Board-mount models are available in both surface-mount and through-hole versions. Additional features include:

  • IP65 and IP67 Ratings – Several receptacles are available in IP65- and IP67-rated versions. Versions that reduce radiated emissions are also available.
  • High Cycle-life Contacts – All SlimLine™ receptacles are rated for a minimum of 50,000 insertion cycles. That’s 33 time more than most USB receptacles.
  • Cabling Options – Choose a panel mount receptacle with a standard 10-pin header (for use with a ribbon cable) or choose a locking connector for high-vibration applications.

Interface Boards for CryptoAuthentication™ Tokens

Microchip offers a CryptoAuthentication™ starter kit to aid in the development of embedded applications using CryptoAuthentication ICs. The CryptoAuthentication SOIC XPRO Starter Kit (part number DM320109) may be purchased from Microchip Direct or from authorized Microchip distributors.

ATEK offers two interface boards that work with Microchip’s CryptoAuthentication Starter Kit. The two boards plug into the extension ports of the SAMD21-XPRO development board that is included in the starter kit. One board is offered with a vertically oriented board-mount receptacle, where the other is horizontally oriented. Both boards come with a header connector for interfacing to panel-mount SlimLine™ receptacles.
