BCM5810X Family

Secure MicroController

Currently Viewing:

Highly integrated PCI-compliant secure microcontroller System on a Chip (SoC) designed for secure payment applications and user authentication functions in computing platforms.  Secure payment applications include point-of-sale (POS) terminals, mobile POS (mPOS), embedded payment / vending, secure card readers, and as a secure coprocessor.  For computing platforms, 5810X can perform hardware-based, host-isolated user authentication and provide secure card reader functions.   All functions are performed within a single device, including contactless and contacted smart cards, biometrics (fingerprint), passphrase, and one-time-password within pre-boot application (PBA) or OS-present environments.  In addition, this device can run custom secure applications.
 
In addition to reading contactless smart cards, the integrated RFID reader can also function as a Near Field Communication (NFC) reader. All processing occurs within the credential vault's secure boundary, allowing users to keep sensitive keys, credentials and other security functions out of vulnerable host memory.
