Silex Insight launches DDR encrypter for
High-Performing Systems (ASIC/FPGA)

Silex Insight, a leading provider of cryptographic IP solutions, is now extending their offering by launching a high throughput DDR encrypter (100Gbps). The DDR encrypter IP Core module enables on-the-fly encryption and authentication to the external memory. It is highly configurable and may be optimized for various size, throughput, and latency trade-offs. The core is device independent and is highly portable.


Many ASIC/FPGAs are now system on chip devices that contain an embedded processing hard-block. When data confidentiality is essential, it is necessary to protect the confidentiality of memory accesses performed by the processor. These accesses may be processor instruction fetches or general memory transactions. This IP core improves tamper resistance by avoiding any modification, spoofing or analysis of external data. It comes with optional authentication and handles multi-region management. The IP core is highly configurable with the possibility of area/performance trade-offs.

It supports AXI slave/master interfaces, APB port for configuration purpose. It is typically placed between the processor(s) and an external memory controller (DDRx).

The new combination of Silex Insight’s fast crypto coprocessor with Mbed TLS 3.x has been customer proven. It is available as an easy-to-integrate IP with software drivers for both FPGA and ASIC architectures. In addition, and in line with all IP from Silex Insight, the Mbed accelerator will be continuously maintained, following future versions and security upgrades of the Mbed platform.
