Following a successfull asynchronous Standard Cells (SC) library design and characterization, IC’Alps went on the implementation of an Embedded Security IP for the same Customer.
Design services to perform the physical implementation of an asynchronous secured IP in TSMC 16nm FFC technology (then GF22), starting from a post-synthesis netlist, using third-party IPs, with shield and AO (Always On) Power domain.
This project used asynchronous standard cells from the library previously developed.
In accordance to customer requirements, the first task was to prepare and implement all criterias compliant with Common Criteria. This implementation was audited by CESTI with a final approval from ANSSI.
This asynchronous design was based on the advanced and challenging TSMC 16FFC (FinFET Compact) technology node using digital Low Power flow.
For this project, our digital team performed :
