August 29, 2013 -- AlpCode™, established provider of industry-leading software implementations of cryptographic algorithms, introduced the AlpCode SHA family, a range of efficient hardware implementations of the Secure Hash Standard (NIST FIPS 180-4) algorithms.
With their innovative architecture, Alpcode SHA Tiny cores provide higher performance using less logic than competitive offerings, allowing customers to reduce power consumption and achieve good performance in a very small footprint.
The Alpcode SHA Tiny cores for SHA-512 (supporting 384, 512 and 512/t variants) are available immediately, while SHA-256 support and AlpCode SHA Fast cores are scheduled for release next month.
Based in Hørte, Norway, AlpCode (www.alpcode.com) is a division of Custom Solutions Group S.A. and makes innovative and market-leading software and hardware implementations of cryptographic algorithms. Its founder, Dag Arne Osvik, has a PhD in Cryptology and is well known in the cryptographic community for his many record breaking fast software implementations.
