Infineon to use ARM inside security chips

Posted on Thursday, November 19 2009 @ 03:25:20 CET by


EE Times writes Infineon has signed a license agreement with ARM to use the ARM architecture in a new line of high-security chip cards for multimedia applications:
The license agreement refers to the ARMv6M and ARMv7M 32-bit architectures. The move is intended to enable Infineon to integrate its proprietary security features into ARMs widespread CPU core implementation. At the same time, the chip vendor hopes to benefit from ARMs existing development and software ecosystem. A prerequisite to this end is that Infineon will leave the processors' instruction set unchanged.

With the move Infineon becomes ARMs first licensee targeting at security applications. The first product resulting out of the partnership will target the multimedia SIM market. This product can be expected in the second half of 2011, Infineon announced.
