LEGIC’s latest reader IC member is the 6000 series. Thanks to the secure element, the new reader chip generation can be integrated into IoT applications requiring great significance to security.
Increased security due to secure element
The key material of the reader chips is stored in secured, toughened hardware, namely in the secure element. The CC EAL5+ certified secure element is the prerequisite for a wide range of secure uses in the Internet of Things. This makes it possible to encode communication channels, which require end-to-end security.
Integration of Bluetooth Smart
Bluetooth Smart enables an endless number of applications with your smartphone. Personalization can be carried out using LEGIC Connect and does not have to happen in a special office. As well as the BLE function, the 6000 series also has a larger storage volume and improved processor capacity. This means the application code of the user can be executed on the reader chip and the customer’s own microprocessors are no longer necessary.
The 6000 series can also be used to realize previous applications in the LEGIC eco system. The necessary security is now provided for applications which have not yet been realised due to an insufficient security anchor.
