Voltage Glitch Detector


Product icon for Voltage Glitch Detector

Product Overview

The agileGLITCH voltage monitor provides security and protection against voltage side-channel attacks (SCA) and tampering such as supply voltage changes/glitches and power supply manipulation. The sensor provides digital outputs to warn (secure) processors of intrusion attempts, thus enabling a holistic approach to hardware security. As a key part of the agileSCA TVC (Temperature, Voltage, Clock) security sensor can be tuned to your specifications and is ideally suited for security and monitoring in applications such as in IoT, Security, Automotive, Medical, AI and general SoCs and ASICs.

Agile Analog designs are based on tried and tested architectures to ensure reliability and functionality. Our design methodology is programmatic, systematic and repeatable leading to analog IP that is more verifiable, more robust and more reliable. Our methodology also allows us to quickly re-target our IP to different process options. We support all the major foundries including TSMC, GlobalFoundries, Intel Foundry, Samsung Foundry, UMC and Other Foundries.
