level of flexibility and international acceptance. The newly
certified NXP security microcontroller, with its state-of-the art
performance, will be the platform powering the high-end of NXP's
A-series turnkey Cyber Security Solutions, and in particular the
Security Module for Smart Metering and Automation Gateways in
Germany. With this new certification, NXP further expands a track
record of more than 100 certificates already issued for a total of
four generations of secure microcontrollers.  
"Continuous security innovations and step-up in security
certification levels is part of NXP culture and a commitment towards
our customers," said Ulrich Huewels, general manager business line
smart ID solutions at NXP Semiconductors. "NXP is at the forefront of
