PHOENIX–()–Avnet (NYSE: AVT),
a leading global technology distributor, today released the next
generation Trusted Platform Module (TPM) Security Peripheral Module
(Pmod) enabling advanced hardware root of trust platform integrity,
remote attestation and cryptographic services for Industrial Internet of
Things (IIoT)–enabled devices for applications including factory
automation, smart cities, smart grid and health care. Representatives
from Avnet will be on hand at the Xilinx Security Working Group December
4-5 in Paris and December 7-8 in Munich to demonstrate how the new TPM
V2.0 Security Pmod can help designers leverage the robust protection
functionality of the OPTIGA TPM 2.0 security solution from
Infineon Technologies AG, which is fully compliant with the Trusted
Computing Group’s TPM 2.0 standard.

Based on the OPTIGA TPM SLB9670 2.0 security solution, the
Avnet-designed TPM V2.0 Security Pmod is a cost-effective and
production-ready component that features an enhanced Serial Peripheral
Interface (SPI) to the Zynq® UltraScale+ MPSoC
from Xilinx, which is included on Avnet’s UltraZed
System-on-Module (SOM).

“Cybersecurity is a make-or-break attribute of today’s IIoT solutions,”
said Tom Curran, technical marketing manager, Avnet. “Combining the
latest version of Infineon’s OPTIGA TPM and the multi-layered security
features of the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, Avnet provides designers
with the security needed for edge-to-cloud connections in a
cost-effective, simple-to-implement package.”

The TPM V2.0 Security Peripheral Module is now available from Avnet for
$29.94. Further information on the module can be found at: http://zedboard.org.
