Crocus Technology has licensed the ARM SecurCore SC000 processor for use in its secure microcontroller chips which are powered by Crocus' Magnetic Logic Unit (MLU) architecture. The combined strengths of these two advanced technologies will enable companies to more easily develop secure, energy-efficient and high-performance new smart card products at low cost.
ARM SecurCore SC000 processor is for applications such as SIM cards, smart cards and in-package secure enclaves.
"ARM is pleased to be working closely with Crocus to enable and protect our increasingly connected world," said Noel Hurley, deputy general manager, CPU Group, ARM. "This partnership will build on the strong trust in smart, energy-efficient ARM-based technologies and the networks connecting them. Businesses need to deliver next-generation security at all levels, from smart cards to servers."
"Crocus is delighted to be taking our disruptive MLU security forward with ARM," said Bertrand Cambou, executive chairman, Crocus. "Combining the widely adopted ARM SecurCore processor with Crocus's disruptive MLU technology further enhances industry recognition of Crocus's products and their compliance with industry standards.
