April 11, 2018 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, today announced a global distribution agreement with NewAE Technology Inc., a company dedicated to providing low-cost, open source tools for performing side-channel power analysis and fault glitching. The NewAE product line available from Mouser Electronics centers around the ChipWhisperer toolchain, which combines open source hardware, software, training, and documentation for embedded hardware securityresearch. The ChipWhisperer system consists of capture boards, target boards, and software to perform attacks and analysis.
“Hardware security is one of the most important challenges for today’s design engineers, and NewAE’s ChipWhisperer products provide our customers with tools to integrate security into their designs,” said Andy Kerr, Vice President, Supplier Management, Products at Mouser Electronics. “This partnership brings NewAE’s products to customers around the world, allowing them to take advantage of these innovative solutions.”
“Mouser’s robust global distribution and support network will enable us to reach our goal of making our hardware security solutions widely available to the industry, academia, and others focused on hardware security,” said Colin O’Flynn, CEO at NewAE Technology. “We are excited to be joining forces to deliver our ChipWhisperer product lines to new customers around the world.”
ChipWhisperer starter kits provide all the equipment necessary, including capture and target boards, to conduct side-channel power analysis and fault injection attacks. The ChipWhisperer-Lite Level 1 Starter Kitallows engineers to perform attacks on a variety of included targets, such as an 8-bit microcontroller and 32-bit microcontroller, while the ChipWhisperer-Lite Level 2 Starter Kit enables attacks on external targets. The ChipWhisperer-Pro Level 3 Starter Kit, suitable for laboratory use, features a 98 Ksample buffer, a streaming mode for almost unlimited capture, and a pattern-based I/O trigger.
The ChipWhisperer-Lite capture boards offers a low-cost solution for embedded hardware security research, delivering NewAE’s established analog front-end and FPGA design in a small form factor. The ChipWhisperer-Lite is available as a single board or in a two-part version with SMA connectors that enable easy connection to other boards.
NewAE’s UFO Target Boards are designed to mount onto the UFO Baseboard for use with either the ChipWhisperer Pro or the ChipWhisperer-Lite Capture Tools. Target boards include versions that enable embedded security analysis on the Xilinx Spartan XC6SLX9 FPGA, STMicroelectronics STM32F series of Arm®Cortex® microcontrollers, NXP MPC5748G 32-bit microcontroller, Intel® D2000 Quark™ Microcontroller, and Intel 87C51 microcontroller. NewAE’s wide range of embedded hardware security systems are supported by accessories including the CANoodler CAN interface, CW506 advanced breakout board, and a probe set with power supply.
