June 28, 2011 -- StarChip SAS has announced the availability of its new SCM family of secure SIM controllers addressing M2M (machine-to-machine) markets. The SCM controller family is based on Cortus SA APS3s 32-bit core enabling 20MIPS at 20MHz across an extended range of temperatures (-40°C to +105°C). A combination of flexibility and extended performance with large data retention (>25years) and best-in-class endurance (up to 2 billion cycles) have been implemented to deliver a robust design suitable for harsh environments.
SCM members (SCM320G and SCM288G) are fully Flash-based, code and data with SST SuperFlash enhanced by E3 (ECUBE) proprietary mechanisms. Both devices are available in VQFN8 package compliant to ETSI TS 102 671 or can be delivered in tested sawn dice on frame.
Extended characterization and production tests have been executed to guaranty the extreme requirements encountered in various applications (metering, health care, industrial, payment, security, maintenance, computing, maintenance, etc.)
The SCM320G is sampling now and will be delivered in mass production in October 2011 in VQN8 package, wafer form or sawn dice on frame.
