Arm SecurCore SC300

The Arm SecurCore SC300 processor is designed specifically for high-performance smartcard and embedded security applications. 

Block Diagram on SecurCore SC300.

Getting Started

The SC300 combines the benefits of the industry standard Cortex-M3 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-M3. Therefore, the Cortex-M3 documentation listed below can be used for software development. However, explanation of anti-tampering features requires a SecurCore NDA.

** 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.
