Reconfigurable silicon

Your developments made easy with SEcube™ Open hardware and software. Tried and tested by academia and enterprise!


What is SEcube™

SEcube is the smallest reconfigurable silicon combining three main cores in a single-chip design. Low-power ARM Cortex-M4 processor, a flexible and fast Field-Programmable-Gate-Array (FPGA), and an EAL5+ certified Security Controller (SmartCard) are embedded in an extremely compact package. This makes it a unique security environment where each function can be optimised, executed, and verified on its proper hardware device.

In a very small form factor (BGA 9x9mm) SEcube features all the useful standard interfaces, suitable for implementations in many and most devices. As an example, lab tests have certified resilience of the chip for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) applications.

SEcube is based on a modular software architecture where all the functional blocks are isolated and well documented.

Who is SEcube™ thought for

SEcube finds its place in different industries from IoT to Biomedical and ICT, helping developers implement military-grade security to comply with data protection and privacy regulations. Whether in motion or at rest, data is protected by sophisticated security mechanisms. Products implementing SEcube leverage the chip to manage processes and safeguard the cryptographic algorithm and keys used to secure transactions, applications, and sensitive data.

So put your mind at rest, when using SEcube your information is intrinsically safe.

Open source hardware and software

Open source and tools for developers. Hardware netlist, package, examples of schematics, complete software stack (including APIs) and development kit as well as examples of implementations can be downloaded from our Open Source page for free.

Optimised firmware from Blu5, on request, is another valuable option to move on with your developments at a faster pace focusing on other important aspects of your developments. To learn more about our Optimised firmware, visit the Products page.

Embedded environment

Designed to address developers, makers and manufacturers looking for the fast track from prototype to product, minimising the development risks.

Fast integration

Powerful security-oriented open hardware-software platform, easy to integrate and capable of hiding all the complexity behind a simple, high-level set of APIs.

Configurable Silicon

Reconfigurable hardware based on FPGA to address growing design complexity and cost and empower developers to create evolving solutions based on fixed hardware.

What do I get for SEcube™

A combination of hardware security module and SDKs.
Developers are provided with an easy-to-use, high-security abstraction layer. Security experts can verify, change, or write from scratch the whole system starting from the elementary low-level blocks.

SEcube SoC enables the embedded FPGA address a variety of use cases and adapt to changing requirements instead of forcing the spinning of custom ASICs

Another opportunity is to use advanced embedded solutions, which combine micro controllers with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). the Blu5 SEcube security oriented open platform is a good example, as it’s a single chip design that expertly integrates three main parts: a powerful micro controller, a Common-Criteria-certified smart card and a flexible FPGA. Developers (and Students) can fully control and customise Bu5 SEcube.
