At today’s Apsara Conference, AntChain, the blockchain technology arm of Ant Group, officially released the T1, its first self-developed chip. The chip is equipped with the high-performance T-Head’s open source RISC-V-based Xuantie series processors, and will be applied to AntChain’s self-developed software and hardware equipment, such as the AntChain Station, in the future.
The T1 security chip is mainly used in IoT devices. By establishing a secure execution environment, it can resist various software and hardware attacks and increase system security. The T1 digitally signs and verifies the integrity of key data through blockchain technology, thus realizing the software and hardware technology innovation of “blockchain + security chip”.
