Cypress Semiconductor PSoC 6 supports ARM Platform Security Architecture (PSA)

Posted by Charbax – March 8, 2018

Jack Ogawa, Senior Director of Marketing, MCU at Cypress Semiconductor talks PSoC 6 and arm PSA at Embedded World 2018, PSoC 6 MCUs now support the highest level of security as defined by the Arm Platform Security Architecture (PSA). In the interview, Jack discusses the three levels of hardware-based isolation for securing connecting devices. Cypress also gave a cool demo illustrating how a LoRaWAN edge node can be secured with a PSoC 6 MCU.

PSoC 6 is purpose built for the Internet of Things, enabling easy integration of sensing, processing, connectivity and security functions all in a low-power MCU. Integrating secure element functionality with on-chip hardware accelerated cryptography, PSoC 6 MCUs enable designers to easily implement security in a single chip without needing an external secure element device.
