High Performance Security, Anti-Tamper & Signal Processing
Embedded where security is mission-critical.
Implementing the most robust security into your SoC design or FPGA is no longer nice to do, it is an absolute imperative. Trusting Athena’s security experts eliminates significant project risk, speeds your time-to-market, and reduces overall cost of ownership.
Athena is a leading provider of security, cryptography, anti-tamper, and signal processing IP cores to many of the world’s largest semiconductor companies, defense contractors, and OEMs, as well as emerging providers. Embedded in millions of ASIC and FPGA devices, Athena technologies enable high-value solutions where security and performance are mission critical: defense and aerospace, vehicle safety (V2V, V2X, telematics), networking and communications, satellites, cellular base stations, handsets, the Internet of Things (IoT), and more.
Athena’s innovative and experienced team architects best-in-class products: security microprocessors with unmatched hardware efficiency and programmable flexibility, dedicated accelerators for cryptography and security protocols, a comprehensive set of tamper-resistant security cores with DPA countermeasures developed under a Developer agreement from Rambus’ Cryptography Research division, highly optimized FFTs and signal processing cores for communications applications, and related technologies.
