Thanks for information for GD32F103.  Let's see.

In general, I don't want such a feature in device side.  It could be a
honey-pot.  Or, it tends to be immature like ROCA problem.

To achieve same, it's far better done in host side.  In OpenPGP card V3
specification, I proposed KDF Data Object, so that host side can do more

In recent Gnuk, it is already implemented.  Host side implementation is
ready in GnuPG, just waiting next release.

Do you mean this?

I made prototype.  It found that the multiplier is too slow in
Cortex-M0+.  It would be OK for ECC though.

For FS-BB48, I designed 3D part:

In 2016, I was unable to find better way to manufacture something like
FS-GETA083.  At that time, using standard USB-A plug is more cheaper and

Thus, in 2016, my conclusion was update to FST-01G.
