Nuvoton Technology Corporation announced its NPCT6xx Trusted Platform Module (TPM) family implementing the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) version 1.2 specifications for PC-Client TPM, supporting LPC, SPI and I2C host interfaces. The NPCT6xx is the first TPM to achieve Common Criteria (CC) with assurance level EAL 4 augmented, FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) 140-2 level 1 and TCG certification. All supported within a single device.
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) technology is designed to provide hardware-based security-related functions. A TPM chip is a highly secured crypto-processor that enables protection of sensitive data such as keys, passwords and digital certificates, and provides trustworthy reports of system integrity and states.
“Nuvoton continues to expand its TPM portfolio providing cost-effective solution to customers” said Erez Naory, VP of Client IC Products, Nuvoton Israel. “We are proud to deliver the first ever TPM that meets all customers’ certifications demand including TCG, CC and FIPS.” This represents Nuvoton’s leadership in TPM ecosystem.
The NPCT6xx family features high performance 32-bits processor, crypto engine, large NV storage, secured GPIOs, pre-installed EK and EK certificates and Field Upgrade to next-generation TPM 2.0. The NPCT6xx family is now in volume production, samples are available in the TCG-recommended TSSOP28 and QFN32 packages.

Membership in the Trusted Computing Group is your key to participating with fellow industry stakeholders in the quest to develop and promote trusted computing technologies.
Standards-based Trusted Computing technologies developed by TCG members now are deployed in enterprise systems, storage systems, networks, embedded systems, and mobile devices and can help secure cloud computing and virtualized systems.
Trusted Computing Group announced that its TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) Library Specification was approved as a formal international standard under ISO/IEC (the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission). TCG has 90+ specifications and guidance documents to help build a trusted computing environment.
