High Performance Virtex-4 FPGAs Enable Single Chip Cryptographic Solution
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.
