NXP Secure Controllers

As an NXP partner and Approved Engineering Consultant (AEC) for design and manufacture of
embedded security and authentication in embedded applications, Ashling offers a unique
prototyping and development solution for NXP secure controllers.

The development of applications and operating-systems for secure controller ICs can involve substantial amounts of complex software. Debugging target application code executing in real-time in its target processor environment is an essential step in efficiently finding and fixing difficult-to-detect software bugs.

Ashling SmartPK-P40

Real-Time Prototyping Kit for NXP SmartMX2-P40 secure controller

After testing and debugging a smart card program, the designer can download code to the Ashling SmartPK-P40 and test the code in a fully-functioning card reader system. SmartPK-P40 will behave like the target smart card containing the ROM-code.
