3DES Crypto Engine

The DES/3DES crypto engine offers a hardware implementation of the Data Encryption Standard (DES) according to Federal Information Processing Standards Publication (FIPS 46-3) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).


Standardized AXI-4 and AHB (optional) I/O simplifies system integration. It is easily portable to ASIC and FPGA  and supports a wide range of applications on various technologies. The unique architecture enables a high level of flexibility. The throughput and features required by a specific application can be taken into account in order to select the most optimal and compact configuration.
