“Bare Metal Security” adds hardware system tripwire to SoCs

UltraSoC, which until now has focussed on advanced debug for systems-on-chip, has exploited the characteristics of its technology to enable a security feature that will operate at hardware level, detect any abnormalities in SoC operation – either internal failure or hacking – and alert supervisory systems.
