BA414E - PK crypto engine
Public Key cryptography is part of many security standards and is widely used to establish secure communication channels across unsecure open networks like Internet or to provide authentication via electronic signatures.
Software solutions are often too slow for real-time applications and the overall impact on performances becomes very quickly a penalty for the whole system when the overhead on CPU workload is too high. Accelerators often consume a large part of silicon and are not flexible enough to be used as stand-alone solutions.
The BA414E is an efficient hardware accelerator really offering significant and valuable advantages.
Small footprint and high-performance solutions
The BA414E is highly pipe-lined and can provide very high-performances in large configurations. With less than 30kgates for the smallest configuration supporting the whole set of operations, the BA414E is the ideal solution for applications requiring strong constraints of cost & power.
100% CPU Offload
The BA414E does not require any assistance of the main CPU. Pre- & post-calculations are automatically done and all internal data transfers are handled by a scatter-gather DMA.
This IP core is available on any ASIC technology or any FPGA device from Actel, Altera or Xilinx.
IP by SoC designers
The BA414E is developed, validated & licensed by BARCO-Silex.
A 100% CPU offload engine generating tiny or fast solutions for RSA, CRT, ECDSA & key generation on any ASIC or FPGA technology.
