The ChipWhisperer-Pro features 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 only available in a complete started kit that includes AVR & STM32F3 (Arm Cortex-M4) targets, along with accessories you will need such as simple differential & magnetic-field probes, voltage translators, and analog filters.
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 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.
Stream samples back at 10 MS/s, allowing capture of long traces (full RSA, ECC, etc).
Generate clock glitches with sub-nS resolution on timing.
Crowbar-based voltage glitch generator.
Open source FPGA design allowing customization of capture platform.
Using our Jupyter notebooks, you can learn how DPA works, how to break password checks, how fault injection works, and even more. Or use ChipWhisperer-Lite with our online training offerings.
Advanced DPA Features
The ChipWhisperer-Pro gives you features like a streaming mode to record long data traces, and triggering on analog patterns. It uses the unique synchronous capture technology to provide the well aligned power traces, just like the ChipWhisperer-Lite.
Ready for Work
The ChipWhisperer-Pro comes with most accessories you need out of the box, and a convenient waterproof storage case to protect your ChipWhisperer-Pro even if you live in a hurricane-prone area.
