With increasing electrification and connectivity, vehicles are at greater risk of cyberattacks, which can have serious consequences. For this reason, it is crucial that automotive manufacturers provide adequate protection of telematics data.

Infineon Technologies has launched the SLI37 automotive security controller. It claims this is an easy to design in and reliable anchor to secure safety-critical automotive applications like 5G-ready eUICC (eCall), V2X communication, car access or SOTA updates.

Infineon claims the robust chip design of the SLI37 offers an extended temperature range as well as a lifetime of 17 years. While it comes with benchmark quality resulting in very low failure rates, its biggest advantage is the ability to be used for multiple applications. OEMs can focus on a single qualification and design-in process.

With more than 100 million eSIMs in the field, Infineon’s SLI series has proven its reliability. Now it additionally offers all automotive qualifications and certifications required by the industry including CC EAL 6+ and AEC-Q100.
