Embedded SIM controllers for security & reliability in cellular M2M

March 02, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
For connected devices using secured cellular Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication for automated data exchange, Infineon Technologies has added the SLM 97 and SLI 97 security controller families with features required for M2M communication in industrial as well as automotive applications such as emergency Call (eCall) and Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V).

SLM 97 and SLI 97 product families enable the full implementation of embedded SIM as defined by GSMA and ETSI, increasing flexibility and simplifying the deployment of new M2M solutions in industrial deployments.

Both SLM 97 and SLI 97 provide

an extended temperature range from -40° to 105°C and high endurance for operation in demanding industrial and automotive environments

up to 1MB “SOLID FLASH” memory, allowing fast prototyping and shortening time-to-market for device manufacturers

a set of hardware crypto-coprocessors supporting all relevant crypto schemes

a wide range of interfaces including ISO7816, SWP, USB, I ²C, and SPI to address a large variety of industrial and automotive applications

Common Criteria EAL 5+ (High) certification

The SLM 97 security controllers are tailored to industrial M2M applications requiring high endurance and robustness. They are qualified according to internationally recognised industrial standards and delivered in standard embedded M2M packages as well as in standard SIM card modules.

The SLI 97 security controllers are qualified according to the high quality automotive standards (AEC-Q100) and tailored to the difficult environmental conditions of automotive applications. They pass through exhaustive quality processes to minimise failure rates.

Both families are based on field-proven products deployed in traditional Smart Card markets worldwide.
