The AT88CK490 evaluation kit for the Atmel CryptoAuthentication™ Family includes the Atmel ATSHA204, ATAES132, and ATECC108 devices.

Cryptologix offers a Cryptocape for the BeagleBone and a Cryptoshield for the Arduino. These circuit boards contain CryptoAuthentication for the Elliptical Curve, SHA and AES ciphers from Atmel. In addition, a real-time clock and EEPROM are included. A “trusted” Atmel ATMega328 8-bit AVR secondary processor is used on the Cryptocape. This is the same processor found in the Arduino variant of development boards. A secondary processor is not found on the Cryptoshield.
