Agile Analog and Silex Insight form partnership to offer combined analog and digital IP solutions to provide advanced security and protection against side-channel attacks (SCA) for chip manufacturers
Agile Analog, a supplier of highly configurable process node-agnostic analog IP building blocks, today agreed a partnership arrangement with Belgium-based Silex Insight under which the two companies will jointly market combined analog and digital IP solutions to offer enhanced security solutions for customers’ ASIC and SoC developments.
Agile Analog has developed a technology, the COMPOSA system, which generates configurable analog IP optimized to a customer’s specification within weeks, for any foundry and node. In addition to data conversion, power management and sensing, it also provides security and protection against side-channel attacks (SCA) and tampering through an array of configurable sensors that detect temperature shocks; supply voltage changes/glitches; and clock manipulation. On the other hand, Silex Insight offers digital security IP cores – (i.e. Root-of-Trust / eSecure), that are scalable and flexible. The features include secure boot, system integrity by ensuring execution of authenticated software, device authentication, cryptographic acceleration, and generation and storage of secure keys and secret information. This combined solutions between Agile Analog and Silex Insight can be tuned to each specific solution, offering an advanced security and protection.
The partnership agreement means that the companies will collaborate to provide analog and digital solutions for customers building ASICs or SoCs. This will enable chip developers and chip manufacturers to accelerate the development process while achieving better design outcomes:
Agile Analog and Silex Insight has already delivered their combined solutions to several customers and more in the pipeline. The benefit is that both Agile Analog and Silex Insight generate custom IP optimized to the customer’s application, foundry and node, so jointly developed mixed-signal systems will give chip manufacturers superior results in terms of power, speed, area, or any other chosen parameter.
