Imagination offers PUF technology on M5150 CPU
Imagination Technologies and Intrinsic-ID are collaborating to bring higher levels of security to products that use Imagination based technologies.
The first product from the partnership is the availability of Intrinsic-ID’s Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) technology for Imagination’s M5150 CPU,targeted at low power applications such as M2M, IoT and embedded control. Intrinsic’s PUF technology – called Hardware Intrinsic Security, or HIS –extracts security keys and identifiers from the ‘silicon fingerprint’ of standard SRAM circuits
Jim Nicholas, executive VP for MIPS Processor IP, said: “PUF technology is an important element of SoC security. Intrinsic-ID’s technology is used widely across governments and other highly secure markets. We’re delighted to bring this efficient technology to the many customers using MIPS M5150 CPUs.”
A system with multiple domains enabled by Imagination’s OmniShield-ready MIPS CPUs is said to allow for HIS key extraction and management functions to be implemented securely in software.
Pim Tuyls, Intrinsic’s CEO, added: “Since Intrinsic-ID’s PUF technology doesn’t require any change on the silicon, it can be deployed widely and inexpensively. Providing high security at low cost, it is a natural choice for chip vendors.”
