The Cryptographic Coprocessor (or CryptoSoc Accelerator) is a hardware IP core platform that accelerates cryptographic operations in System-on-Chip (SoC) environment on FPGA (Altera SoC, Xilinx Zynq) and ASIC.
Symmetric operations are offloaded very efficiently as it has a built-in scatter/gather DMA. The coprocessor can be used to accelerate/offload IPsec, VPN, TLS/SSL, disk encryption, or any custom application requiring cryptography algorithms.
Silex Insight offer in total 3 Crypto Coprocessors variants to accommodate the different market needs; all of them offer full security features, and the same crypto engines can be included:
• Compact (BA457): Specifically designed for devices with strict power and area constraints.
• Standard (BA450): Integrates desired cryptographic IP cores additional interfacing, DMA and software layers.
• Premium (BA456): Builds on top of standard features to support isolated hardware key generation.
