Crack Semiconductor Introduces The CS256-ECC Light-Weight ECC Offload Processor
Crack Semiconductor introduces the CS256-ECC, an ECC-only variant of its CS1024 PKA Processor with the SIMPLR(tm) integer state aware data path. The product's optimal multiplication technology enabled a very high performance to gate area ratio.
By: Arthur J. Low, CTO
This news follows quickly on the heals of company's release of the CS1024-RSA compute offload processor with measured performance of 177+ RSA 1024-bit decryptions per second and 13,586 RSA 1024-bit encryptions (with exp = 2^16 + 1) using a single 32-bit multiplier core.
"Crack Semiconductor has developed exciting new PKA technology that moves the performance versus power (and / or area) close to theoretical limits", say CTO and Founder, Arthur J. Low. "We are clearly setting new performance standards, and the CS256-ECC is addressing a definite market need for high performing, efficient ECC-only offload processors.The ability to configure the CS256-ECC IP for 16-bit, 32-bit and 64-bit core multiplication provides customers to select the right configuration for their performance and chip area & power budgets."
