BlueRISC Completes Several Complex Processors With Axiom’s MPSim

Axiom’s MPSim Used Exclusively in the Design and Verification of State-of-the-Art Processors for the Security Market

Amherst, Massachusetts, October 2, 2012 –BlueRISC, a leader in hardware-assisted security and cyber-defense solutions for the defense sector, today announced that it has successfully completed several highly complex security processors, exclusively with Axiom Design Automation’s MPSim verification platform.

BlueRISC Inc. was founded in 2002 to develop ironclad hardware-centric security and anti-tamper solutions for assuring software copy protection, enforcing intended use, defending against tampering, and protecting critical software and hardware IP. Competing companies offer conventional hardware solutions claiming "hardware-based" security, which is vulnerable to many known attacks, or the even more vulnerable software-only-based security and obfuscation solutions. In comparison, the pillars of trust in BlueRISC solutions are its game-changing end-point security processors and hardware roots of trust.

“We used to be VCS users, but we switched to Axiom’s MPSim few years ago, due to its advanced debugging environment and better overall value”, stated Kris Carver, Technical Director of BlueRISC, Inc. “We have exclusively used MPSim in all our designs, including CaptureGUARD and TrustGUARD, and are very pleased with the results. Our engineers are seeing significant increased productivity with MPSim’s advanced integrated debugging environment, which enables our engineers to detect and isolate design problems very quickly. We are very happy that we made the switch to Axiom. We plan to continue to use Axiom on our next project”.

TrustGUARD is a multiple-issue security processor designed from the ground up that pioneered several new security concepts including random instruction sets unique for each device, cryptographic accelerators, trusted storage and execution, advanced protection against side channels and physical attacks, and included support for various peripherals such as SDIO, LPC, and PCI Express.   CaptureGUARD processors provide advanced functionality to assist in cyber security analysis against advanced threats. 

“We are very pleased with BlueRISC’s experience with our product”, said Badru Agrawala, President and CEO, Axiom Design Automation. “I am very happy to see that we were able to increase BlueRISC’s verification productivity. We are seeing increased demand for our product all over the world as customers are discovering that they can significantly increase their productivity and reduce their verification cost with MPSim”.
