The Internet of Things (IoT) offers great opportunities but also presents significant security challenges for OEMs:

  • Data and Communication Protection: OEMs need to protect the created data and communications of their IoT devices.
  • Counterfeiting and Overproduction: These devices also need to be protected from overproduction and counterfeiting.
  • Cost and Supply Chain Flexibility: Security measures should not adversely affect costs and supply chain flexibility for OEMs.


GOWIN's SecureFPGA addresses these challenges by combining the advantages of an MCU and FPGA with robust security functions. At the heart of SecureFPGA is Synopsys Software-based PUF IP, which provides a hardware-based Root of Trust (RoT). This technology addresses the following:

  • Unclonable Identity: Each device gets an immutable and invisible unique identity for authentication.
  • Data Protection: Encryption ensures the safety of data both at rest and in transit.
  • Turnkey Security Solutions: Using Synopsys Software-based PUF IP, SecureFPGA offers turnkey security solutions for OEMs.


The implementation of SecureFPGA with Synopsys Software-based PUF IP provides:

  • Unique Identity: Every device gets an unclonable, immutable, invisible, unique identity for authentication.
  • Data and Communication Protection: This identity is the basis for protecting data and communications, as well as the supply chain.
  • Operational Efficiency: The burden of security is lifted from OEMs, without affecting their OpEx or BOM.

With SecureFPGA, GOWIN Semiconductor and Synopsys are empowering OEMs to secure their IoT devices more effectively, ensuring data integrity and protection while maintaining cost efficiency and supply chain flexibility.
