The SecurCore® SC000™ processor is designed specifically for the highest volume smartcard and embedded security applications. The SC000 combines the proven security features of ARM SecurCore processors, currently the most widely-licensed 32-bit CPU for smartcards worldwide, with leadership technology from the Cortex-M0 processor. The SC000 processor’s ultra low power footprint makes it an ideal choice for a range of contactless and NFC applications.
- The SC000 processor is based on the ARM Cortex-M0 processor, leveraging its excellent mix of architectural features, high performance and very low costs.
- The ARM SC000 processor implements the Thumb instruction set, including a small number of 32-bit instructions that use the Thumb-2® technology, delivering 32-bit high performance at 16-bit levels of code density.
- The SC000 processor includes a configurable Nested Vector Interrupt Controller (NVIC) for highly deterministic and low interrupt latency, crucial for running multiple security algorithms and communication interfaces concurrently.
- With its highly advanced debug features and standardized peripheral models, the SC000 processor helps OEMs to drastically reduce software development overheads by easing code portability and reusability with the resultant time-to-market significantly reduced.
