Renesas Electronics America, Intrinsic ID, and Medium One Introduce Complete Sensor-to-Cloud Platform to Simplify Secure IoT Development

Renesas Electronics America Inc., Intrinsic ID, a digital authentication company and inventor of SRAM Physical Unclonable Function (SRAM PUF); and Medium One, an Internet of Things (IoT) Data Intelligence company, announced their collaboration on the RX231 Wi-Fi Cloud Connectivity Kit.

Based on Renesas’ popular RX231 Group of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs), the new evaluation kit incorporates Intrinsic ID’s “root-of-trust” SRAM PUF technology and Medium One’s cloud services and IoT workflows. This combination provides developers a quick and easy method to evaluate the IoT capabilities of RX231 MCUs and on-chip peripherals with an out-of-the-box platform for home appliances, industrial automation, and medical applications.

“Security and connectivity go hand in hand, and as more connected devices come online, developers are looking for the holy grail of embedded design – secure, authenticated Wi-Fi connectivity for their product platforms that is easy to implement,” said Semir Haddad, Director of Marketing, MCU and MPU Product Solutions, Renesas Electronics America. “Working together, Renesas, Medium One, and Intrinsic ID are bridging the complexity gap with a cost-effective board-to-cloud platform with integrated root-of-trust IoT authentication.”

“Embedded and cloud developers who have traditionally worked in different environments with different platforms and tools now have the added complexity of operating in each other’s fields,” said David Thai, President and CEO of Medium One.

The Renesas RX231 Group of MCUs provides the framework of the RX231 Wi-Fi Cloud Connectivity Kit. Featuring a 32-bit RXv2 CPU core with improved DSP/FPU and low-power consumption technology, RX231 MCUs allow designers to realize extreme power efficiency for their IoT applications.

The kit comes pre-programmed with an IoT Authentication demo that provides users with firsthand experience at establishing a root of trust for their systems. The kit uses Intrinsic ID PUF technology working in conjunction with hardware-based Trusted Secure IP and the security functions available in the Renesas RX231 MCUs and powered by Medium One’s cloud-based computing and data intelligence platform. The RX231 Wi-Fi Cloud Connectivity Kit also comes pre-programmed with a Smart Machine demo that allows developers to easily set up a cloud platform with dashboards and analytics for streaming real-time data to their account.
