Nuvoton Technology, a leading global semiconductor technology provider, proudly announces its latest groundbreaking product – the eBMC chip. This innovative product, specially designed for edge computing platforms, promises to deliver enhanced efficiency, security, and management capabilities to the edge computing environment.
The eBMC (Edge Computing Base Management Controller) chip is a novel creation based on Nuvoton’s own BMC (Base Management Controller) and TPM (Trusted Platform Module) technologies. It seamlessly integrates Root of Trust (RoT), network security, and platform management. In addition to bringing full security and privacy protection for AI of edge computing, it also brings a perfect balance of design convenience and usability for edge computing platform manufacturers.
The eBMC chip boasts several crucial features, including:
- Root of Trust (RoT): The eBMC chip establishes a Root of Trust, ensuring the highest level of security for all data during processing and transmission. This is crucial for safeguarding sensitive data and mitigating data risks.
- Security and Privacy: The eBMC chip emphasizes security by incorporating multiple layers of security measures to guarantee data integrity and confidentiality. It integrates TPM technology, supporting data encryption, authentication, and risk management, shielding users from potential threats.
- Remote OOB (Out-of-Band) Management: AI models need to be deployed and regularly updated on edge devices, and these devices are often deployed in hard-to-reach locations. Therefore, eBMC chip provides remote management and troubleshooting, ensuring these devices maintain optimal operation in various environments.
In addition, the eBMC chip provides various interfaces and traditional I/O functions, including USB, eSPI, CAN Bus, UART, and more, making it compatible with various platforms, including x86 and ARM, while offering greater flexibility.
Nuvoton also proudly announces the selection of the eBMC chip as the Advantech EdgeBMC Out-of-Band management solution for IoT devices by Advantech in 2023. This collaboration ensures a higher level of security and management for IoT devices. “We are proud that the eBMC chip has been adopted by Advantech. This is a testament to our commitment to edge computing, data security, and smart technology. We believe this innovative product will bring greater value to Advantech and drive IoT future technological developments.” Nuvoton remarks.
Nuvoton has always been committed to driving progress worldwide through innovative technology. Nuvoton eBMC chip will continue to bring more innovation and development to the field of edge computing.
