ChipWhisperer-Pro (CW1200) is a high-end, lab-grade bench tool designed to allow developers to conduct Differential Power Analysis (DPA) and explore glitch vulnerabilities in their hardware projects before implementation. The ChipWhisperer-Pro is part of the ChipWhisperer ecosystem, NewAE Technology Inc.’s open-source toolchain for embedded hardware security research. The ChipWhisperer-Pro has a more powerful processor than the ChipWhisperer-Lite, allowing features like real-time pattern matching in the analog waveform, streaming data back to the computer for working with asymmetric algorithms, and more. It keeps the same API as the ChipWhisperer-Lite and the same analog front-end, making it seamless to switch between ChipWhisperer-Lite and ChipWhisperer-Pro.
The ChipWhisperer-Pro is available in a complete starter kit that includes AVR and STM32F3 (Arm Cortex-M4) targets, along with a variety accessories, including simple differential and magnetic-field probes, voltage translators, and analog filters.
98K-sample buffer (compared to 24K-sample with CW-Lite).
Stream samples back at 10 MS/s, allowing capture of long traces (full RSA, ECC, etc.).
Trigger on analog pattern (SAD match).
Advanced I/O trigger (trigger on UART, SPI).
Low-Noise Amplifier (LNA) with adjustable gain of up to +60 dB for analog power measurements.
10-bit ADC up to 105 MS/s, with ultra flexible clocking mechanism to allow synchronous power capture.
Real-time pattern matching to trigger glitch or DPA on specific operations, using only the power measurement as a trigger input.
Generate clock glitches with sub-nS resolution on timing.
Crowbar-based voltage glitch generator.
Open source FPGA design allowing customization of capture platform.
Advanced Breakout Board (voltage translation).
Probe set with Power Supply (Differential probe + LNA + H-Field probe).
CW308 UFO Board Kit (STM32F3 & XMEGA Targets, jumper wires, etc.) (NEW: Boards now come with ARM target instead of AVR)
3 Additional Blank Target Boards with Header Pins.
High-Pass and Low-Pass filters that screw onto the front-end of CW1200.
