SHA-3 hashing function

SHA-3 hashing functions IP compliant to FIPS standards.



The BA418 is  crypto engine IP core  for SHA-3 hashing functions compliant to NISTS’s FIPS 180-4 and FIPS 202 standards. The core has integrated flexibility and scalability to allow for high throughput and a configurable number of hashing rounds to optimize the silicon resource/performance ratio.

Standardized AXI-4 I/O simplifies system integration. All our IP cores  are delivered with software drivers  to simplify ASIC or FPGA integration.

The SHA-3 IP core is available for ASIC and FPGA devices (Altera, Xilinx, Microsemi).
