Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium --- October 30, 2013 -- Barco Silex, a leading provider of cryptography IP cores, announced today that Toumaz has successfully integrated Barco Silex Public Key IP core (BA414E) into its ultra-low power wireless communication ASIC.
“We have chosen the Barco-Silex solution because it offers useful trade-offs between functionality, area, power consumption and performance. Moreover, the IP is 100 % CPU-offload which makes SW integration very easy without any computation from the main processor. The HW IP core integration was straightforward thanks to very standard interfaces” said Omeni Okundu, Director of Digital and Embedded Systems at Toumaz.
“With the expansion of portable devices, there is an increasing demand for security in wireless communications. Portable systems require very low power consumption with very high levels of security” said Sébastien Rabou, Product Manager Barco-Silex. “Our compact configuration of the BA414E fits perfectly to those demands and ensures a very high level of performance”.
