Winbond’s W74M family is an Authentication Secure Flash Memory solutions comes with standard HMAC-SHA-256 crypto accelerator and 4 separate Monotonic Flash Counters that are HMAC-signed by individual secret keys. System utilizing each Monotonic Flash Counter can not only verify the integrity and authenticity of the counter values, but also add a timestamp to the message/information transmitted with the resistance to reply attacks. W74M enables system designers to strengthen code/data storage as well as delivers increased security with multi-layered authenticity capability for the emerging IoT devices on the edge or outside the cloud. 

The W74M are multichip packaged devices with Winbond’s Serial SPI Flash, a proven flash memory technology with rich product portfolio. While all standard security features equipped within the Serial SPI Flash are maintained, the W74M comes with following differentiated security features:

  • HMAC-SHA-256 standard crypto algorithm
  • 4 sets of 256-bit OTP Root Key
  • 4 sets of 256-bit volatile HMAC Key
  • 4 sets of 32-bit Monotonic Flash Counter

The W74M 3-Volt devices are offered in a wide range of densities, from 32 Megabit to 2 Gigabit.  Low power 1.8-Volt devices are under development.
