SecurCore SC000

The Arm SecurCore SC000 processor is designed specifically for the highest-volume smartcard and embedded security applications. 

Getting Started

The SC000 combines the low power and low area from the Cortex-M0 processor with the proven security features of Arm SecurCore processors. This enables a high assurance level certification for security-critical applications. Arm SecurCore processors are the most widely licensed 32-bit processors for smartcards worldwide. The programmers’ model is the same as the Cortex-M0. Therefore, the Cortex-M0 documentation listed below can be used for software development. However, explanation of anti-tampering features requires a SecurCore NDA.


Characteristics

Performance efficiency: 2.33 CoreMark/MHz* and 0.87/1.02/1.27 DMIPS/MHz**

   180ULL
(7-track, min 1.8v, 25°C)
 90LP
(7-track, min 1.2v, 25°C)
 40LP
(9-track, min 1.1v, 25°C)
 Dynamic Power

0.034 mm2 0.008 mm2

** The first result abides by all of the ‘ground rules’ laid out in the Dhrystone documentation. The second result permits inlining of functions, not just the permitted C string libraries. The third result also permits simultaneous (multi-file) compilation. All are with the original (K&R) v2.1 of Dhrystone.
