CARTES, France, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Atmel(R) Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML) today announced its new VaultIC(TM) family of security modules for applications including femtocells, smart meters, telehealth, USB token and gaming platforms. The VaultIC460 is the first security module available on the market that provides a secure microcontroller with multiple interfaces and bundled firmware.

The introduction of this new turnkey solution is a testament to our commitment in the security solutions market."

The new VaultIC family offers designers enhanced functionality, a new interface with rapid computation of all standard cryptography algorithms, and higher security to protect both the keys and data.
