Edge IQTM IIoT Processor

The Edge IQ™ IIoT Processor is a fully secured, smart communication and IIoT compute reference design system that combines high performance and security. This single-board computer features low power requirements and a small footprint to move applications and analytics to the edge.



Deploys hardware-enforced, cloud server-grade cryptography to ensure confidentiality, integrity and authenticity of data.


Runs applications and analytics locally where existing embedded systems are inadequate.


Automates actions based on real-time sensor data with low-latency applications.


  • Octa-core 1 GHz RISC-V processor ensures computational performance.
  • Adds dedicated, multi-threaded and multi-protocol crypto accelerator.
  • RISC-V privileged architecture enables superior software security.
  • RocketChip-based SoC supports all required I/O interfaces for IIoT applications.
  • Secure application enclaves use hardware-enforced software separation of code, data and memory.
  • In-order processing provides immunity to speculative execution vulnerabilities (i.e., Spectre & Meltdown).
  • Eight (8) engines provide cryptographic functions and key management unit for Root of Trust.
  • Guaranteed unique identifier is tamper proof and hardware based.
  • Ensures secure boot and authenticated firmware updates.
  • Tamper-proof firmware prevents malware infection and snooping.
  • Resists bricking caused by failed firmware updates.
  • Open-source system leverages FreeBSD OS and LLVM/Clang compiler.
  • AXcrypt hardware-accelerated libraries leverage high-performance Axiado crypto engines.
  • Sensor Fusion libraries enable machine learning and scripting from Axiado’s I/O interfaces.
  • Firmware updater libraries and hardware-based authentication ensure secure updates to SoC firmware.
