STMicroelectronics: collaboration with CommScope for Matter


STMicroelectronics announced the integration of CommScope’s PKIWorks IoT security platform with its STM32WB microcontroller unit. This collaboration offers manufacturers a solution for developing IoT devices that meet the Connectivity Standards Alliance Matter standard for security. With this integration, devices can be commissioned at the MCU level without developer intervention. “As a CSA promoter, ST is committed to making Matter development seamless for all device makers – said Nathalie Vallespin, STM32 Connectivity product line manager, STMicroelectronics –. Our n.1 ranking for general-purpose microcontrollers and expertise in secure elements positions us to combine our deep understanding of device-makers’ challenges and strong knowledge of Matter to create unique collaborations like this one with CommScope. This will accelerate the adoption of Matter development through an easy and secure process for credential provisioning”. PKIWorks is a credential provisioning and management platform refined over decades of experience and billions of device credentials. “By integrating the CommScope Sentry PKIWorks platform with ST’s popular MCU platform – stated Bart Giordano, President, Networking, Intelligent Cellular and Security Solutions, CommScope –, we’re offering our customers a turnkey solution to alleviate the challenges of Matter adoption, while handling the complexity, scale, and cost. CommScope and ST have a long-standing collaborative relationship, making it easy to meet growing demand for new Matter IoT devices with the expertise of two industry leaders with decades of experience at the forefront of digital security, semiconductor solutions, and device manufacturing”.
