With ever increasing electrification and connectivity, vehicles are at greater risk of cyberattacks than ever, which can have serious consequences from both an operational and safety perspective. It is therefore crucial that automotive manufacturers provide adequate protection of telematics data. To counter such threats, Infineon Technologies has introduced its SLI37 automotive security controller, which it says is an easy to design in and reliable means of securing safety-critical automotive applications like 5G-ready eUICC (eCall), V2X communication, car access or SOTA updates.
The company claims that the unique and robust chip design of the SLI37 offers an extended temperature range as well as a lifetime of 17 years. In addition to its reliability, the chip’s biggest advantage, Infineon says, is its ability to be used for multiple applications. For this reason, OEMs can focus on a single qualification and design-in process.
With more than 100 million eSIMs in the field, Infineon notes its SLI series has already proven its reliability. Now it additionally offers all automotive qualifications and certifications required by the industry including CC EAL 6+ and AEC-Q100.
