Avnet debuts improved TPM V2.0 Pmod for advanced IIoT security


Avnet released on Monday next generation Trusted Platform Module (TPM) Security Peripheral Module (Pmod) enabling advanced hardware root of trust platform integrity, remote attestation and cryptographic services for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)–enabled devices for applications including factory automation, smart cities, smart grid and health care.

Company representatives will demonstrate at the Xilinx Security Working Group later this week how the new TPM V2.0 Security Pmod can help designers leverage the protection functionality of the OPTIGA TPM 2.0 security solution from Infineon Technologies AG, which is fully compliant with the Trusted Computing Group’s TPM 2.0 standard.

This Pmod enables measured boot functionality and cryptographic security to extend the hardware root of trust enabled by Zynq and Zynq UltraScale+ deevices.  The system also supports additional use cases such as device Identity, secure storage, secure communications, and secure firmware upgrade. When these capabilities are coupled with the Zynq and Zynq UltraScale+ secure boot (hardware root of trust) feature, developers have the security foundation required for the Industrial Internet of Things.

Based on the OPTIGA TPM SLB9670 2.0 security solution, the Avnet-designed TPM V2.0 Security Pmod is a cost-effective and production-ready component that features an enhanced Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) to the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC from Xilinx, which is included on Avnet’s UltraZed System-on-Module (SOM).

“Cybersecurity is a make-or-break attribute of today’s IIoT solutions,” said Tom Curran, technical marketing manager, Avnet. “Combining the latest version of Infineon’s OPTIGA TPM and the multi-layered security features of the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, Avnet provides designers with the security needed for edge-to-cloud connections in a cost-effective, simple-to-implement package.”

The TPM V2.0 Security Peripheral Module is now available from Avnet for $29.94.
