Freescale Semiconductor introduces new lineup of security accelerators

Feb 01, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Freescale Semiconductor, a provider of microcontrollers, microprocessors and semiconductors, has introduced the C29x family of crypto coprocessors, a new lineup of security accelerators engineered to help the data center to scale with increases in secure network traffic.

Freescale's C29x family offers scalability in both power and performance. The family is designed to accelerate RSA (up to 4k key sizes), Diffie Hellman, and Elliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC) algorithms, and integrates up to 10Gbs of bulk encryption.

Whether applied in a large data center blade or within a hardware security module, C29x crypto coprocessors consume minimal power for thermally constrained designs. The products can be used in single- or multi-chip PCI-E end point card configurations, or can operate as standalone processors, the company added.

"Internet traffic security requirements are increasingly stringent and complex, yet the security coprocessor market is currently served by very few vendors. Customers are asking us for high-performance, cost- and power-efficient choices for coprocessors," said Tareq Bustami, vice president of product management for Freescale's Digital Networking group.

"Freescale has leveraged its communications processor leadership and 30 years of embedded security R&D investment to develop the new C29x crypto coprocessors, which offer the security and scalability data centers need to handle tremendous increases in data volume." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
