Techworld Article: Hardware Security Trend Of Semiconductor Companies

By February 1, 2019May 12th, 2021No Comments

Since the IoT (Internet of Things) has been introduced, the number of edge and node devices has increased rapidly. IoT devices are growing at a faster pace than traditional devices such as desktops and mobile devices. According to IC Insight, the number of connected IOT devices will grow by 14-16% annually, including 2.3 billion in 2017, 2.6 billion in 2018, and 3 billion in 2019, up to about 4 billion by 2021.
5G, Machine Learning, and IoT convergence is at the forefront of computing, which means embedded developers need rich features for the Linux-based operating system as well as key security and reliability requirements. Traditional System-on-Chip (SoC) FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays), which combine reconfigurable hardware and Linux support processing power into a single chip, provide the right device for customization, but with high power consumption, this is a lack of flexibility, and costly processing architecture.
To address this, Microchip Technology has introduced the industry’s lowest power, mid-range PolarFire FPGA family, through its subsidiary, Microsemi, to the open RISC-V ISA (Instruction Set Architecture) based on a microprocessor subsystem in a new class of SoC FPGA architectures.
