The 1-Wire® bus is a simple signaling scheme that performs half-duplex bidirectional communications between a host/main controller and one or more nodes sharing a common data line. Both power and data communications are transmitted over this single 1-Wire line. For power delivery, nodes capture charge on an internal capacitor when the line is in a high state and then use this charge for device operation when the line is low during data transmission. This unique communication scheme allows you to add memory, authentication, and mixed-signal functions at any time, easily and efficiently.

DeepCover® secure NFC/RFID transponders (tags) and transceivers (readers) employ a bidirectional security model to enable the most secure contactless communication possible. Our RFID transceiver IC includes a Secure Hash Algorithm-256 (SHA-256) secure authenticator coprocessor based on the FIPS 180-4 standard. When paired with our NFC transponder ICs, the bidirectional security model enforces two-way authentication. Each NFC tag includes a unique 64-bit ROM ID and UID that serves as an electronic serial number within the application. Our secure NFC tags and RFID readers empower new industrial and medical applications, such as node-device secure authentication, automated device configuration, usage limit setting, and sensor-tag implementation.

You Can’t Steal a Key that Isn’t There

ChipDNA provides unprecedented protection against cyberattacks by deriving a cryptographic key from a precise analog characteristic of the IC. This key is based on a physically unclonable function and is not stored in memory or any other static state where it could be compromised.
