We license our proprietary CoreGuard® silicon IP as hardware design files to companies designing SoCs and embedded processors. CoreGuard integrates as a sentry processor with existing ISAs and designs—on the same chip—to deliver unprecedented levels of security, safety, and privacy.
To start creating inherently secure embedded systems with CoreGuard, you can follow our simple four-stage engagement model to efficiently evaluate and license CoreGuard silicon IP.
Get a first look at how CoreGuard works.
Your CoreGuard demo will be led by one of our experienced team members. During a 30-minute demo, you will receive an introduction to the CoreGuard solution and its architecture, take a deep dive into the CoreGuard SDK, and see examples of how CoreGuard blocks different cyberattacks.
Download our free CoreGuard SDK.
CoreGuard SDK provides users with a curated set of micropolicies and a subset of developer tools for evaluation purposes. Delivered as a virtual machine, the SDK comes with sample applications designed to demonstrate what the included micropolicies can do. Customers use the provided debugger to examine issues and troubleshoot micropolicy violations.
A paid evaluation, which includes customized micropolicies and support, is available upon request.
Integrate CoreGuard IP into a processor.
The Design license enables you to design the integration of CoreGuard IP into a processor or family of processors. We will provide you with the CoreGuard interface model, software simulator source code, and GCC compiler. You’ll also receive tools and APIs needed to integrate CoreGuard silicon IP and micropolicy tools into an SoC/processor development environment. We typically charge a fixed upfront license fee for a standard Design license.
Manufacture and deploy processors with CoreGuard.
The Deploy license enables you to produce and sell processors with integrated CoreGuard silicon IP. The Deploy license is issued for a standard manufacturing term, or in perpetuity, and can be based on a single processor family, or across all families within a business unit, against payment of royalties according to established royalty rates.
