On Sundays we like to do a little STEMMA, but today we’re doing twice as good cause we’re adding Security to the mix. This is a STEMMA i2c breakout for the Infineon Infineon OPTIGA TRUST M SLS 32AIA – video.
OPTIGA Trust M is the next generation of Trust X. OPTIGA Trust M brings RSA 1K/2K + ECC256/384.
Enhanced security for connected / IoT devices
The OPTIGA™ Trust M is a security solution based on a secure microntroller. Each device is shipped with a unique elliptic-curve keypair and a corresponding X.509 certificate. OPTIGA™ Trust M enables easy integration into existing PKI infrastructure, both RSA and ECC based. OPTIGA™ Trust M reduces integration effort and is easy to use – making it ideal for customers who lack security expertise but nonetheless need fast time-to-market. This premium security solution offers high performance and low power consumption. It supports non-rich operating systems and comes in compact packages. It enables new features and business models which help you to differentiate your offering and stay ahead of the competition.
A crypto authentication chip much like the ATECC608 STEMMA we put into the shop last week, but with: ECC NIST P256/P384, SHA-256, TRNG, DRNG, RSA® 1024/2048 and 4.5K of user memory.
This chip can store your private keys securely, as well as generate true random numbers, which is what we’ve got going on in this demo here.
Special thanks to Oscar!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
