EmSPARK security used by Atonarp to provide device security for digital molecular solutions

Seattle, United States. 14 June, 2022 – Sequitur Labs announced that its EmSPARK security suite has been implemented into the Atonarp ASTON mass spectrometer platform for in-situ semiconductor manufacturing to provide critical security functionality, intellectual property protection, and reduced time to market.

“Their decision to leverage Variscite SoMs to reduce hardware complexity and achieve faster time to market was made exponentially better because we had already preconfigured EmSPARK to work on Variscite’s NXP i.MX 8M Plus architecture, streamlining the process and ensuring that devices are secure from development through their entire lifecycle.”

The EmSPARK security suite provides Atonarp with a complete security solution including secure boot, secure firmware updates and device failure recovery. In conjunction with its partner Variscite, a system on module vendor in the embedded market, Sequitur Labs helps deliver a complete security solution using the company’s i.MX8 based system on module (SoM) to provide device security and protect AI (artificial intelligence) models on Atonarp products.

“While the Aston mass spectrometer delivers a purpose-built solution for advanced semiconductor manufacturing environments, we realised that we needed to significantly reduce product risk,” says Martin Mason, VP product marketing, of Atonarp. “Leveraging the EmSPARK complete security solution in conjunction with Variscite’s SoM architecture allowed us to achieve rapid deployment of shipping complete, secure mass spectrometers in only 4 weeks.”

“Variscite is making every effort to provide its customers with the most reliable and highest quality products. The partnership with Sequitur Labs allows us to provide our customers with additional layers of software security for complete end-to-end services on our SoM solutions,” says Ofer Austerlitz, VP business development and sales at Variscite.

Sequitur Labs’ EmSPARK security suite was designed to address solutions in industries where embedded security is paramount, in particular, protection of AI models at the edge. Supporting security functions for encryption, storage, data transmission and key/certificate management are delivered by EmSPARK and housed in a microprocessor’s secure memory partition. IoT hardware manufacturers use EmSPARK to easily implement device level security by addressing technical, IP, supply chain and business process challenges. Developers can easily build applications that use secure resources without having to become experts in cryptography and complex chip level security technologies.

“Next-generation devices require next-generation security and EmSPARK was just the solution that Atonarp needed to build secure and trustworthy products,” says Philip Attfield, co-founder and CEO of Sequitur Labs. “Their decision to leverage Variscite SoMs to reduce hardware complexity and achieve faster time to market was made exponentially better because we had already preconfigured EmSPARK to work on Variscite’s NXP i.MX 8M Plus architecture, streamlining the process and ensuring that devices are secure from development through their entire lifecycle.”
