Glitch Amplifier

Know exactly when to trigger a glitch with this powerful fault injection attack and measurement tool.

Measure with high precision

  • Recognize behavior patterns from the target and visually see the effect of the glitches.
  • Identify patterns that can be used as a trigger point to inject glitches at the right moment.
  • Analyze patterns to identify different types of operations performed on a chip/device (i.e. crypto operation).

Generate with clarity

  • Generate precise noise-free signals.
  • Included Base Unit Amplifier allows the user to amplify weak measurements.
  • Improve the overall quality of your Riscure test setup.


Precise generation of glitches

Fully integrated with the rest of Riscure Inspector test tools

Improved measurement bandwidth up to 4500 MHz

A part of the Riscure Set Up

Inspector integration: Glitch Amplifier is a part of a Riscure ecosystem for precise testing of Side Channel and Fault Injection attacks. It can be used together with the communications (Spider) and triggering (icWaves) devices. All these tools work together with Riscure Inspector.

Standalone: The Glitch Amplifier can be integrated with any fault injection test setup with third-party products (software and hardware).

Technical Specifications


Signal in

  • Input impedance: 50 Ohm
  • Max, voltage range: -0.5V – +2 V

Pulse generator with 50 Ohm output impedance must be connected via 50 Ohm cable. As a result, ‘signal in 50 Ohm’ voltage will be half of generator voltage. This is compensated by a 2x amplification.


  • Max. voltage range: -1V – +4V
  • Low noise: <10mV
  • Amplification: 2x. As a result ‘out’ voltage will match generator voltage
  • Bandwidth: from DC to 300 MHz @ -3dB
  • Capable of sourcing and sinking up to 1.5 A peak and 1A continuously

Connection cable between ‘out’ and target must be as short as possible (low inductance)



Current monitor 50 Ohm

  • Impedance: 50 Ohm
  • Detailed power consumption monitoring
  • Spectrum: 1 Mhz – 4.5GHz
  • Output voltage: -400mV – +400 mV

Oscilloscope with 50 Ohm input impedance must be connected via 50 Ohm cable.

Voltage monitor 50 Ohm

  • 50 Ohm Tap on the out-port for connection to an oscilloscope
  • Enabling detailed monitoring of the voltage glitch
  • Output voltage: -0.5V – +2V

Pulse generator with 50 Ohm input impedance must be connected via 50 Ohm cable. As a result, ‘voltage monitor 50 Ohm’ signal will be half of ‘out’ voltage.
