The BCM58300 is designed to protect sensitive user data and end systems against common hardware and software security attacks. Broadcom's latest product offering powers authenticated and intelligent processing nodes to aggregate data from sensors, payment cards, wireless devices, keypads, security cameras and other connected devices and securely processes this information to the network.

"As the number of connected devices continue to increase, safeguarding sensitive data and credentials becomes extremely important," said Ed Redmond, Broadcom Vice President and General Manager, Compute & Connectivity.  "With its versatile feature set, high levels of integration and multimedia capabilities, Broadcom's latest processor offering addresses these data security concerns and extends our market leading position in payment terminals to other market segments and applications, all within a very small footprint."

The new addition to the StrataGX family, the BCM58300, incorporates the industry's most advanced hardware security, a high performance ARM Cortex A9 processor running up to 1.25GHz and versatile communications and user interfaces, all contained in a very small package and power envelope. The ARM Cortex A9 processor also includes L1 and L2 caches, ARM NEON™ Single Instruction, Multiple Data (SIMD) architecture extensions and floating-point unit to support enhanced graphics, audio, video, and other capabilities. For enhanced user interfaces and larger device displays, a hardware 3D graphics accelerator is integrated as well.

Additionally, the BCM85300 is integrated with enhanced BroadSAFE™ Security, providing exceptionally strong hardware-based protection for critical user and payment data without impacting system performance. BroadSAFE™ capabilities include hardware cryptographic acceleration, Secure boot, Security Protection Logic such as Tampers, Monitors, Sensors, and battery-backed logic. In addition the BCM58300 family integrates ARM TrustZONE™ secure processing architecture.

The BCM85300 enables cost effective and power-efficient system designs and is aimed at a broad set of embedded applications including wireless audio, industrial Ethernet applications, home automation devices and others.
