Athena & Microsemi: Delivering the Strongest Security Technology for FPGA Users







The introduction of Athena’s TeraFire® F5200B Suite B cryptographic microprocessor in Microsemi’s PolarFire™ FPGAs rewrites the rules of cryptographically secure user applications. With a comprehensive suite of cryptographic algorithms, the world’s strongest side channel attack/differential power analysis (SCA/DPA) countermeasures, high performance, and CAVP certifications, PolarFire breaks new ground in bringing strong cryptography to the FPGA markets.

This same Athena TeraFire F5200B technology, and the full suite of Athena cryptographic IP, are available as soft IP cores optimized specifically for Microsemi FPGAs, including cores which include Athena's InterStealth SCA/DPA countermeasures technology. InterStealth countermeasures are a breakthrough innovation in the field of SCA/DPA countermeasures, delivering the strongest resistance available with place and route independence, a first for SCA/DPA countermeasures.
