15 March 2023

Rambus now offers Arm CryptoCell and CryptoIsland Root of Trust cores as part of its industry-leading security IP portfolio. Going forward, semiconductor design teams will now be able to license this IP directly from Rambus.

The CryptoCell CC-312, CC-712 and CC-713 are lightweight cores without a processor or controller and offer Key Management and Crypto Services to Arm TrustZone-enabled Arm Cortex-M and Cortex-A powered system on chip designs. TrustZone is Arm technology offering Normal and Secure World environments on a single CPU. The CryptoCell cores will be available alongside the RT-1xx Root of Trust cores for sensor, device, gateway and server applications in the internet of things market.

The CryptoIsland CI-300 is a security enclave that can be used in isolation to the host processor. With its secure programmability, the CryptoIsland core will be offered alongside the Rambus RT-6xx Root of Trust series. The most common examples are smart cards, mobile application processors and 5G modems.
