Terafire Crypto Microprocessor Family
Athena cryptography microprocessors are purpose-built cryptographic CISC microprocessors with embedded accelerators for specific algorithms and deeply integrated instructions that deliver maximum performance while providing software programmability. This powerful combination yields valuable dividends: instead of simply being able to perform one or two public key operations, Athena cryptography microprocessors can autonomously execute nearly any operation currently in commercial and government use with its COTS firmware load, delivering market leading performance density (measured in operations per square micron or operations per joule).
Athena Cryptography microprocessors are tightly integrated, single core solutions that provide fire-and-forget operation using a comprehensive set of C-language software drivers. Advanced integration options include AHB/AXI slave or bus mastering DMA interfaces, packetized communications, key management, and much more.
