Solution with NXP Semiconductors strengthens distributor’s service offering for OEMs and EMS


Brussels, Belgium, 16th May 2024 – Avnet Silica, an Avnet company (NASDAQ: AVT), today announced its cooperation with NXP® Semiconductors, a leading secure connectivity solutions provider for embedded applications, to bring secure provisioning services to OEM and EMS customers. This consolidates the distributor’s long-standing collaboration with NXP.

The cooperation allows Avnet Silica to be the first NXP programming partner to deliver the EdgeLock® 2GO service for compatible devices. The Avnet Silica secure provisioning machine is connected to NXP’s EdgeLock 2GO cloud-based solution to streamline the provisioning process of OEM devices and ensure quality of service. This joint solution allows OEM or EMS customers to configure, generate and manage their device credentials via the NXP EdgeLock 2GO service. They can then receive the credentials already programed into the silicon by Avnet Silica, removing the need for OEM or EMS customers to connect on their own.

The Avnet Silica and NXP EdgeLock 2GO secure provisioning solution supports key and certificate injection such as Matter certificates and cloud authentication. Other available services include secure boot mechanism injection and firmware programming for IP protection; customers also have the safety of avoiding counterfeit devices through transparent product distribution tracking.

“We have worked with NXP to enable provisioning for EdgeLock 2GO compatible devices in our Product Modification Center in Poing, Germany. This new service allows our customers to receive securely provisioned devices. By using our secure provisioning service, OEMs have a quality-assured service and ease of traceability in order to help avoid the grey market,” commented Romain Tesniere, Business Development Manager IoT & Security at Avnet Silica.

“NXP is committed to make it easier, simpler and more convenient for device OEMs to provision their IoT devices. Our EdgeLock 2GO service delivers a secure, simple and flexible way to provision and manage device credentials, over the entire lifecycle of the device, from manufacturing to deployment and retirement. By collaborating with Avnet Silica, device OEMs get parts already programed and ready-to-use, while benefiting from the full EdgeLock 2GO experience for updating and maintaining devices in the field,” said Alasdair Ross, Senior Director, NFC IoT Security, NXP Semiconductors.
