Arm Flexible Access gives you quick and easy access to this IP, relevant tools and models, and valuable support. You can evaluate and design solutions before committing to production, and only pay when you’re ready to manufacture.

Key features

Authenticated debug through an always-on communication channel

CoreSight SDC-600 addresses the security needs of modern day devices, by allowing silicon and tool vendors to enforce protection and to police debug accesses into the system. This is achieved through a debug certificate, exchanged through a dedicated communication path of CoreSight SDC-600.

Complete end-to-end security solution

CoreSight SDC-600 is intended to work closely with Cryptographic elements, to provide a robust security solution through debug certificate authentication. Arm ensures that CoreSight SDC-600 is designed and tested, to work efficiently with Arm CoreSight IP and Arm Security IP. This provides the most reliable and predictable security implementation for authenticating debug accesses. 

Promoting efficient ecosystem adoption

CoreSight SDC-600 implements the Arm recommended communication protocol, which enables efficient handshake communication between an external agent and target system.
