More Trust for Smart Life Solutions: NXP’s SmartMX2 Receives CC EAL6+ Security Certificate

NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today announced that its SmartMX2™ secure microcontroller has been awarded the world’s first Common Criteria EAL6+ certification for a secure microcontroller with a contactless interface based on 90-nm technology. Issued by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), the EAL6+ security evaluation adds rigorous mathematical testing of the entire security architecture to resistance against various invasive, semi-invasive and non-invasive attacks, thus also formally proving the security concept. The formal mathematical methods implemented leading to the new SmartMX2 security architecture and the corresponding CC EAL6+ certificate provide a significantly higher trust level to customers.

NXP’s advanced security expertise has made it the global leader in Identification and security technology. The SmartMX™ family of secure microcontrollers leverages the groundbreaking IntegralSecurity™ architecture that combines more than 100 different security features including NXP’s SecureFetch™ protection against laser attacks. It provides security for a wide range of applications such as eGovernment, banking, mobile transactions, public transport, access management and device authentication. NXP has shipped more than one billion SmartMX chips to its customers including 86 out of 102 countries with ePassport projects.

“ID applications, devices and infrastructures to authenticate identities and secure transactions are becoming more prevalent and smarter, which is why the demand for hardware-based security is increasing. Financial institutions and governments in particular require tamper-resistant high-security microcontrollers that provide the best possible security and contactless performance. The CC EAL6+ certificate shows our customers that they can rely on NXP to continuously invest and improve in security, providing customers with trusted solutions for their smart life applications,” said Steve Owen, senior vice president of global sales, Identification business, NXP Semiconductors.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
