The CoreLink TZC-380 TrustZone Address Space Controller extends on-chip security to protect multiple regions of external memory from software attack. The recently announced CoreLink TZC-400 adds new fast path to hide look up latency and adds AMBA 4 ACE-Lite/AXI4 support.

TrustZone on-chip memory
- TrustZone Boot ROM, 8-16KB for signature check code
- On-chip memory (e.g. TCM) – 2KB instruction and 100 bytes data for Secure Monitor
- On-chip RAM for secure code and data. TrustZone Internal Memory Wrapper (PL141) can partition a single larger on-chip RAM into Secure and Non-Secure) Worlds
TrustZone off-chip memory
- TrustZone RAM - in DDR memory, typically 256K-1M for decrypted/checked code.
- Off-chip memory cheaper per bit
- Partitioning a single off-chip memory in up to 16 secure regions by TrustZone Address Space Controller (TZC-380). Resistant to software attack.
