Winbond has announced that the TrustME W75F Secure Flash Memory has achieved PSA Certified Level 2 Ready in the PSA Certified independent security assurance scheme. The TrustME W75F Secure Flash Memory provides a secure, certifiable, and flexible memory sub-system, complementary to Arm v8-M architecture-based systems. It enables SoC and MCU vendors to design secure and certifiable solutions, while expediting time to market. 

To elaborate, PSA Certified is an independent security assurance scheme based on the foundations of the Platform Security Architecture (PSA), which was founded by Arm and aims to build trust through independent security assessment. PSA Certified Level 2 Ready provides a pre-certification security assessment of the PSA Root of Trust to demonstrate solutions that protect against scalable remote software attacks.

Designed to fit the needs of trusted hardware and trusted software vendors, PSA Certified Level 2 Ready is widely applicable to developers seeking a pre-certification assessment. PSA Certified Level 2 Ready is suitable for systems that use FPGA or test-chip based hardware.

“As IoT continues to have a transformational impact on industries ranging from healthcare to industrial, it’s fundamental that trust is built into these devices from the chip level,” said Andy Rose, chief system architect and fellow at Arm: “The achievement of PSA Certified Level 2 Ready gives the ecosystem evidence that the TrustME W75F Secure Flash Memory has the necessary protection against scalable, remote software attacks.”
