Athena delivers the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) ciphers as semiconductor intellectual property (IP) cores. Athena’s AES cores complement the market-leading TeraFire® cryptography microprocessors and standalone TeraFire cryptography accelerators. Whether your application demands high AES performance or the power savings of a dedicated core, Athena’s AES cores deliver both performance and power savings.
Dedicated AES core solutions are constructed using a modular architecture, comprising cipher cores, key schedule generators, and modes modules, allowing Athena to configure an AES solution optimized for the functional, performance, area, and power requirements of your application. Athena supports all AES modes, including ECB, CBC, CFB, OFB, CTR, CMAC, CCM, GCM, and GHASH, and even XTS mode (SP800-38E). Any modes and/or key sizes not required can be omitted to reduce area.
