Xilinx and NSA Deliver New Design Flow and Verification Process for High Assurance Industry

High Performance Virtex-4 FPGAs Enable Single Chip Cryptographic Solution

VIENNA, Va., Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Software Radio Summit Technical Conference, Xilinx Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), the world's leading supplier of programmable solutions, today announced the results of a joint technology development project with The National Security Agency (NSA) consistent with the Department of Defense's (DoD) Crypto Modernization initiatives. Enabled by Xilinx Virtex(TM)-4 FPGAs, the new design flow and verification process provides the industry's first FPGA-based single chip cryptographic solution. Xilinx will be demonstrating the design and verification flow at the Software Radio Summit Technical Conference today in the Sheraton Premiere Hotel at Tyson's Corner.

The jointly developed solution is based on NSA requirements for high-grade cryptographic processing and required an exhaustive analysis to evaluate the security of the Virtex-4 family of FPGAs, and their ability to allow independent functions on a single chip.

"This new technology allows the information assurance industry to maximize the advantages of programmable logic to obtain a true COTS solution to what has historically been a custom process," said Eric Sivertson, general manager for Aerospace and Defense at Xilinx.
