  • Publication number: 20210312115
    Abstract: A system to facilitate communication of a critical signal between functional circuitries of a system-on-chip utilizes a dynamic pattern to securely communicate the critical signal. The system includes selection and comparison circuits. The selection circuit is configured to select and output a set of dynamic pattern bits or a set of fixed reference bits, based on a logic state of the critical signal that is received from one functional circuitry. The comparison circuit is configured to output an output signal based on the set of dynamic pattern bits, and a set of intermediate bits that is derived from the set of dynamic pattern bits or the set of fixed reference bits. The output signal is provided to the other functional circuitry when a logic state of the output signal matches the logic state of the critical signal, thereby securely communicating the critical signal to the other functional circuitry.
