Infineon has introduced its 2x3mm Optiga Trust authentication chip for manufacturers of electronic accessories and replacement parts. The chip is designed to protect the products against the damages linked to counterfeiting.

Consumers benefit as well, as authentication chips can help to reduce the risk of damaging the end-device by using poorly designed pirate products.

Shipping in a 2x3mm USON-3-Package, Optiga Trust is a complete solution consisting of a chip and software that can be integrated into headphones, cartridges, and electronic replacement parts to authenticate them when connected to the end-device. This enables the end-device to recognise authorised products and reject counterfeits. The chip features strong cryptographic security due to asymmetric encryption (ECC Elliptic Curve Cryptography). It requires minimal development and integration effort and comes with an easy-to-integrate Single-Wire host interface.
