Powered by hardware encryption accelerator-enabled MCUs, the Crypto Connected LaunchPad enables you to develop high performance, data protected, connected IoT applications from secure cloud connection, building/factory automation and smart grid to industrial controls.
The TM4C129E Crypto Connected LaunchPad evaluation kit is a low-cost platform for ARM® Cortex-M4-based microcontrollers. The kit design highlights the TM4C129ENCPDT MCU with on-chip Crypto acceleration hardware, 10/100 Ethernet MAC and PHY, USB 2.0, hibernation module, motion control pulse-width modulation and a multitude of simultaneous serial connectivity.
The out-of-box demo for the Crypto Connected LaunchPad demonstrates the use of Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer (TLS/SSL) protocol to connect an IoT product to a cloud server securely. The TLS/SSL support is provided by WolfSSL library that uses the TM4C129E MCU’s hardware crypto accelerators which enables the development of secure connected applications at relatively higher performance. This application runs on TI-RTOS and connects to the Exosite Cloud server using HTTPS packets.
