NXP launches third generation SmartMX platform


NXP Semiconductors has unveiled its third generation SmartMX platform built for the digital services era to provide advanced security and privacy protection for citizen IDs, ePassports, payment and access management applications.

According to NXP, the platform has been optimised to create future-proof secure microprocessors required for secure identity and payment applications where protection of personal identifiable information (PII) and other private data are paramount. Based on NXP´s IntegralSecurity architecture 2.0, the P71D320 security controller is the first solution released in the new SmartMX3 family and is Common Criteria EAL6+ certified.

The company says: “Disruptive information technologies, such as data management in the cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT), sensors and mobile devices have opened up many advantages and opportunities for new services. But the side effects of identity theft, fraud and privacy concerns are at an all-time high. Companies and governments around the world are rethinking how to employ secure electronic credentials that protect PII such as name, date of birth and address, as well as financial, medical and other private information – all while improving the consumer’s service experience. NXP is investing millions of dollars each year to further drive the development of secure solutions for identity protection.”

“The continued development of the digital era, along with the ability to reduce identity theft and fraud, rests on how we evolve secure and reliable identification technologies,” says Sébastien Clamagirand, senior director and general manager of secure identification solutions at NXP. “Building upon NXP’s 15 years of experience in security microprocessors, our new SmartMX3 platform offers advanced security features and performance, while giving our customers the flexibility to adapt their applications according to today´s market requirements thanks to its unique FlexMem technology.”
