ABI Research has started tracking a fairly nascent market in the microcontroller (MCU) space that is focusing on embedded security. Hitting the market in 2015, but gaining real traction only last year, this class of MCUs is a less resource-intensive, discrete version of a trusted execution environment (TEE), designed specifically for low-end IoT devices. Known as a secure MCU, it is being driven by the likes of Renesas (Synergy), NXP (Kinetis), STMicroelectronics (ST33), and Qualcomm (with the upcoming Snapdragon 845).
