As more copyrighted material is finding its way into mobile devices, protection of this asset is fast becoming a critical requirement to preserve both R&D investments and profitable revenue streams of content providers. Most content protection standards require the use of a unique numeric value stored in non-volatile technology somewhere in the system. By programming a unique key or serial number into QuickLogic CSSPs, designers can eliminate the need for specialized non-volatile memories, thereby reducing Bill-of-Materials costs and freeing up precious PCB space.
QuickLogic provides the capability of programming user-customizable, unique keys and serial identification numbers into all CSSP platforms. These keys and identification numbers conform to a customer-supplied list and can serve as the basis for a variety of content protection standards and algorithms.
