NXP P5CC40 SmartMX Smart card Controller, is the long-term approved SmartMX family features a significantly enhanced secure smart card IC architecture. Extended instructions for Java and C code, linear addressing, high speed at low power and a universal memory management unit are among many other improvements added to the classic 80C51 core architecture. The technology transfer step from 5-metal-layer 0.18 µm to 5-metal-layer 0.14 µm CMOS technology offers now even more advantages in terms of security features, memory resources, crypto coprocessor calculation speed for RSA and ECC as well as availability of secure hardware support for 2/3-key Digital Encryption Standard (DES) and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) operations.
The availability of contact interface, optional contactless or S2C interface enables the easy implementation of native or open platform and multi-application operating systems in market segments like e.g. banking, E-passport, ID card, Health Card, secure access, Java card, Near Field Communication (NFC) connectable mobile hand sets as well as Trusted Platform Modules (TPM).
