Embedded Systems are increasingly subject to threats of intrusion and theft of the design and the IP associated with the design. The design implementation choice, if it includes advanced Design Security features, can protect the design and its IP from even the most aggressive intrusion or tampering. Microsemi’s SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs have best-in-class Design Security features that protect the system. This white paper will demonstrate how SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs and the associated design environment make it easy to protect your IP without the need to become a security ‘expert’.
