Microcontrollers bring cryptography onboard

Thursday, 12 August 2004, 8:58 AM EST

Two new PIC Flash microcontrollers feature integrated Keeloq cryptographic peripherals, providing a complete solution for remotely controlled security systems and authentication applications.

Designers of such systems need an integrated solution that provides control of system power consumption and ensures reliable battery-powered operation.
The new PIC12F635 and PIC16F636 microcontrollers meet these requirements by providing the Keeloq cryptographic peripheral, nanoWatt Technology power management modes, and reliable battery reset and detect features, including: programmable low voltage detect (PLVD), a wake-up reset (WUR) function, software-controlled brownout reset (BOR) and an extended watchdog timer (EWDT).
