You can see some more photos of the final version in the online store.
New UFO Targets
You can see a list of all targets on the CW308T Category Page in the wiki. Some of them have links to OSH Park so you can order PCBs with a single click, but otherwise you can download gerbers of them for submission to your preferred PCB fab (we don’t get any kick-backs from OSH Park, so don’t feel obligated to support us). Some also have link to a “1-Click BOM“, which requires a small browser plugin but will then allow you to easily order the BOM from Digikey or other suppliers.
For example we’ve got a STM32F target board – it supports a number of STM32F devices in TQFP64 packages, but so far we have examples building for the STM32F415. We’ll be selling it shortly, but if you can’t wait gerbers are already online.
One of the first boards we will have commercially available is the MPC5748G target board (which isn’t documented yet online). This rather interesting one has three PowerPC cores alongside some interesting peripherals (it’s designed for automotive applications). See a shot of the current status below from our latest run:
Knowledgebase & Tips
This version also includes the “downsampling” feature for the ChipWhisperer-Lite & CW1200, which means you can do attacks on asymmetric crypto. If you’ve got the CW1200 it has an additional streaming mode, but the downsampling might be enough to at least perform some basic SPA and similar attacks.
We’ve also improved the processing of captured waveforms – this was done to improve performance of some huge traces coming from the CWPro in streaming mode, but you will see speed-ups even with the CW-Lite. And if you want the fastest capture speed (in terms of traces/min, this won’t affect your sample rate), be sure to disable waveform redraw , which is another example of the type of tips we are adding to the knowledge base.
That’s all for now from NewAE – just a quick update to keep you informed of the latest changes.
