This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

NXP Semiconductors SE050 Development Kit

NXP Semiconductors SE050 Development Kit is a prototyping platform for NXP’s SE050 EdgeLock Plug & Trust Secure Element family. 

The SE050 secure element provides the IC-level reliability and edge-to-cloud security for IoT devices without the need to write security code.  The development kit communicates with the host using the I2C interface, with commands wrapping using the Smartcard T=1 over I2C protocol. 

The board can be plugged into an Arduino-compatible MCU board, or connected to any other board using the I2C header. Sensors and other peripherals are connected to a separate I2C master interface, accessible through the 10-pin and DB15 headers. 

The DB15 header can also be used to bypass the onboard antenna connected to the SE050’s contactless interface.
