300MHz Arm-Based Microcontroller Leverages Powerful Security Functions

13 October 2023

The PIC32CZ CA90 from Microchip is a derivative of the popular PIC32 genus. This highly-configurable 32-bit microcontroller is based on a 300MHz Arm Cortex-M7 processor architecture.

It can be specified with up to 8MBytes of embedded flash data storage reserve. Among the connectivity options incorporated are UART, I2C, SPI, CAN-FD, USB and Gigabit Ethernet. A key aspect of this device is its built-in hardware security module (HSM). Through this, an array of different security related functions are covered. These include secure boot, key storage, cryptographic acceleration, true random number generation, etc.

“The PIC32CZ CA microcontrollers make it easier for our customers to implement embedded security features into their design,” states Rod Drake, CVP of the MCU32 business unit at Microchip. “These are extremely versatile MCUs with the option of factory provisioning at low-volume production and other customisable configurations such as connectivity and memory to fit many different requirements.”
