MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY PIC24F ‘GB4’ eXtreme Low Power (XLP) PIC microcontroller (MCU) includes an integrated hardware crypto engine with both OTP and Key RAM options for secure key storage, up to 256 KB of Flash memory and a direct drive for segmented LCD displays, in 64-, 100- or 121-pin packages. Dual-partition Flash with Live Update capability allows the devices to hold two independent software applications, and permits the simultaneous programming of one partition while executing application code from the other. Product’s fully featured hardware crypto engine reduces software overhead, lowers power consumption and enables faster throughput. A Random Number Generator is used for generating random keys for data encryption, decryption and authentication, enabling a higher level of security.  http://www.microchip.com15OTD246_MED
