Ashling is an NXP Approved Engineering Consultant partner for design and manufacturing of embedded security and authentication in embedded applications.
Ashling offers a unique prototyping and development solution for the NXP Smart Card IC’s. The development of applications and operating-systems for SmartCard microcontrollers can involve substantial amounts of software. Before the ROM code for a SmartCard design is finally diffused in silicon, it is wise to test the code in its target application using a prototype. After testing and debugging a SmartCard program the designer can download their code to the Ashling emulator, and test the code in a fully-functioning Card Reader system; the SmartXX device behaves like the target SmartCard containing the actual ROM-code.
Ashling's SmartICE, SmartPK and SmartMRK3 products provide this functionality. Both contact and contactless interfaces are available.
