Certified Security for IC Design
Tiempo Secure is a unique security provider for semiconductor designers, based in Montbonnot Saint-Martin, France. For over 13 years, Tiempo has developed security IP, secured software libraries and security expertise to allow their customers to reach the highest and certified levels of security for their SoCs and products.
The flagship IP of Tiempo Secure is the TESIC RISC-V, a Common Criteria EAL5+ PP0117-ready Security Enclave IP. It includes a 32-bit RISC-V microprocessor, secure cryptographic processors and hardware accelerators, security sensors, secure memories and standard interfaces for easy integration and test. TESIC is guaranteed to pass CC EAL5+ PP0117 and / or EMVCo security certification of the chip integrating this macro.
A unique service provided by Tiempo Secure is to manage the entire CC EAL5+ PP0117 (or similar) security certification of customer chips integrating the TESIC certification-ready cores. The work includes the writing of the CC-compliant documentation, the preparation of the customer chip samples and boards for the validation, the support of the ITSEF labs during customer chip evaluation and certification, and the interactions with the national cybersecurity agency to obtain the CC certification.

Explore the Network on Chip and Interconnect Architecture with best performance and max flexibility
Signature IP’s mission is to enable our customers to rapidly and efficiently explore the Network On Chip (NoC) and interconnect architectures for their SoCs and achieve the best possible performance. We aim to speed our customers to market via top-down design exploration and optimization, configurability and flexibility, and excellent customer support.
The company was started in 2021 in Sunnyvale, California, as a spin-off of Marquee Semiconductor Inc. and focuses on tool-based platform solutions around NoC, PCIe and CXL.
The iNoCulator™ is a SaaS-based EDA tool that is used to define the topology of a NoC quickly and easily, configure its parameters and simulate it to measure throughput and latency, power requirements and area. iNoCulatorTM enables interactive whiteboard editing of the NoC topology, through connection of initiators, routers and endpoints, and easy configuration. It supports on-the-fly instant simulation of bandwidth and latency, and estimation of power and area. iNoCulatorTM provides pushbutton RTL generation with targets to an SoC design flow or to an FPGA emulation flow.
With Signature IP, the iNoCulator tool can be used as the chip design platform for incrementally building up and refining the timing of your chip. You start with initial representations of your main blocks, and incrementally replace them by more advanced representations (outline => post rtl => gate level, etc.), while exploring the resulting timing and increasingly improving the NoC architecture to meet your performance goals.
C-NoC is a layered, scalable, configurable, and physically aware configurable NoC. It supports mesh, grid and torus topologies with simultaneous existence of both coherent and non-coherent traffic. It has configurable data bus widths, supports multiple clocking schemes, and is physically aware with auto-pipelining and grouping of routers to meet timing requirements. C-NoC supports multiple protocols including CHI, AXI4/3 and AXI-lite, ACE and ACE-lite.
NC-NoC is a layered, scalable, physically aware configurable NoC supporting multiple clocking schemes for SoCs that do not require coherency. NC-NoC supports multiple clocking schemes and multiple protocols such as AXI4/3, AHB, APB, AXI-lite and multiple bus widths from 32 to 2048 bits. It provides power control through power-islanding and a power-gating architecture at the interface port and router level. NC-NoC is physically aware, providing automated insertion and deletion of pipelines to meet timing, generation of placement-aware groups and topologies, and generation of power and frequency-aware NoC generation.
NC-NoC delivers high performance though any-to-any connections at multiple levels. Its packetized architecture provides scalability with maximum throughput and minimum latency. It is parity enabled to provide resiliency.
A unique feature of the Signature IP NoCs is their understanding of various connectivity protocols and the ability to sustain the NoC through these protocols. Thus, for example, a multi-die SoC designer will be able to see a single NoC that crosses the boundaries of the individual dies and encompasses the whole multi-die chip.
Your NoC as the chip design platform for incrementally building up and refining the timing of your chip
Akida - 2nd Generation, From Perception to Cognition
BrainChip’s vision is to make AI ubiquitous through innovation that accelerates personalized artificial intelligence everywhere. Hence, the Akida Neural Processor platform is inspired by the brain, the most efficient cognitive “processor” that we know of. It’s the result of more than 15 years of AI architecture research and development by BrainChip co-founders Peter Van Der Made (CTO) and Anil Mankar (CDO) along with their team of neuromorphic experts.
BrainChip has been developing and continuously improving this technology that delivers extremely efficient Edge AI inference and learning. That’s the foundation for Akida products, developed at various centers of engineering excellence in Australia, USA, France, and India. Akida continues to learn from experience and evolves, autonomously, like the human brain, consistently leading the industry.
BrainChip’s first-to-market, fully-digital neuromorphic processor IP, Akida™, mimics the human brain to analyze only essential sensor inputs at the point of acquisition—processing data with unparalleled performance, precision, and economy of energy. Most importantly, it supports today’s AI models in hardware with a capable software tool flow to enable rapid development and deployment.
Keeping AI/ML local to the chip and independent of the cloud dramatically reduces latency while improving privacy and data security. This enables radically more capable, customizable, real-time inference and learning at the Edge.
Akida’s event-based processing architecture can boost efficiency by orders of magnitude and its configurable, small footprint is ideal for embedded applications. It can be scaled from a single node configuration for at sensor applications all the way to 256 cores for high-end applications, using its event-based mesh network.
This enables customers to build everything, from wearable or even embeddable healthcare devices that can run for years on a coin battery, to compact, fan-less Edge AI gateways and extremely efficient automotive solutions.
The Akida neural processor is event based – leveraging not just data sparsity, but also activations and weights to reduce the number of operations by orders of magnitude.
The Akida Neural Network has the ability to handle multiple layers simultaneously. It adds support for short or long-range skip connections in the neural mesh or in the local scratchpad.
Skip connections reduce degradation (ResNet) or future usability (DenseNet) of the network. They are usually handled by the host CPU. Now, they are handled directly by the Akida Neural Processor, substantially reducing latency and complexity. So, networks like ResNet50 are now completely handled in the neural processor without CPU intervention. Akida’s unique ability for on-device learning enables devices to extend existing model classes and customize or learn at the edge without having to go to cloud for expensive training.
With the addition of Temporal Event Based Neural Nets in the 2nd generation, Akida can provide substantially smaller and power-efficient solutions for several complex problems in 3D-time series data like video object detection and in 1D-time series data like audio and healthcare vitals. The 2nd generation also adds support for Tiny Vision Transformers to deliver a huge boost to vision related models at the edge.
The most performant and efficient edge AI architecture, Akida is easy to evaluate, design, develop & deploy
Let's sharpen the Edge together!
