Evalan Joins Microchip Technology’s Design Partner Ecosystem

BACE, Evalan’s new IoT connectivity solution uses Microchip’s CryptoAuthentication™ secure element, the ATECC608B TrustFLEX, to secure its IoT solution.

Microchip Technology is a leading provider of smart, connected and secure embedded control solutions. Its easy-to-use development tools and comprehensive product portfolio enable customers to create optimal designs which reduce risk while lowering total system cost and time to market. Customers worldwide use Microchip’s solutions for thousands of different applications. Evalan uses Microchip’s secure element to better secure its IoT connector BACE. BACE is a product that allows you to connect assets quickly, easily and securely with a data platform in the Cloud.

Extra layer of security
The goal of BACE is to build a connection between assets and the Cloud. It consists of an IoT module and a cloud application. The BACE module can be connected to an asset and retrieve data from the asset. BACE then communicates this data via the LTE-M network, part of the 4G infrastructure, to Microsoft’s Azure Cloud. To make this communication even more secure, Microchip’s ATECC608B TrustFLEX secure element has been implemented in the BACE module. Each module stores a unique encryption key on the ATECC608B TrustFLEX secure element. This provides an extra layer of security and reduces risks. The unique encryption key ensures that the entire system is not at risk when one of the modules is compromised. The encryption key is created using procedures available in the Microsoft Azure Cloud. It is one of the most advanced security techniques currently used in everyday IoT solutions.


Valuable cooperation
With Microchip’s expertise in electronic designs, Evalan can further increase the quality of its designs and develop solutions that are even better suited to the wishes of the customer. BACE is such a solution and can help make assets easily connected. In addition, this design partner relationship with Microchip opens new markets for Evalan. Henk Schwietert, CEO of Evalan, says of the collaboration: “Security is one of the most important aspects of IoT. After all, an IoT system is a distributed system, which makes it vulnerable. The addition of Microchip’s ATECC608B TrustFLEX secure element ensures that our BACE system is even more secure. Being selected to join Microchip’s IoT design partner ecosystem is a valuable recognition of the quality of our electronic designs.”
