Through hardware and software, learn the many ways in which Future Electronics and Microchip are helping designers develop and test security solutions for their embedded designs.

  • Power up through USB connector (J3) on the GoodLock board, or plug the proper battery on (P5)
  • Ensure SW4 is in ON position
  • The LCD displays Future and Microchip Logos, then home screen
  • Press SW1 to switch to the Demo mode
  • Press SW2 to scroll through Demo screens when SW1 is in Demo screen
  • Make sure the shield board is on MikroBUS™ socket when pressing SW3 (Warning: Disconnect power before connecting the shield board)
  • To authenticate, pick a Key, and insert into J1, press SW3
  • If it was a Good Key, the Lock will open and Green LEDs will blink
  • If it was a Bad Key, the Lock will not open and Red LEDs will blink
  • If there is no Key, the Lock will not open and the Yellow LEDs will turn on


  • Complete development platform based on Microchip’s SAML11 ARM Cortex-M23, Industry’s Lowest Power 32-bit MCUs, with Chip-Level Security and Arm® TrustZone® Technology
  • The TrustZone technology is a System-on-Chip (SoC) and MCU system-wide approach to security that enables Secure and Non-Secure application code to run on a single MCU
  • Onboard programmer/debugger
  • MikroElektronika expansion header (Click Boards for numerous applications)
  • OLED Display
  • Rechargeable battery
  • 2 Keys with Secure Element ATECC608A with the following capabilities:
    • Cryptographic Co-Processor with Secure Hardware-Based Key Storage
    • Hardware Support for Asymmetric Sign, Verify, Key Agreement
    • Hardware Support for Symmetric Algorithms
  • Padlock out of the box demo
    • Hacker Demo (download available)
    • Secure Bootloader (download available)
    • Authentication Demo (loaded on board)


Trust Shield

The Trust Shield Platform consists of a Microchip SAM D21 microcontroller configured as the main MCU. It comes pre-programmed with Microchip`s Secure Products Group (SPG) kit protocol. This protocol facilitates the communication between the CryptoAuthentication devices ATECC608A-TFLXTLS (TrustFLEX) and the host MCU over the USB HID interface. The Trust Shield can be use with the Goodlock platform or in a standalone application.
