AHA Products Group Collaborates with Freescale Semiconductor to Deliver New Cryptographic Acceleration Hardware

AHA Products Group announced a new collaboration with Freescale Semiconductor to add cryptographic acceleration to AHA's line of hardware acceleration products. The AHA601 and AHA602 PCI Express® boards leverage the Freescale C29x security coprocessor to deliver between 8K and 32K 2048-bit RSA transactions per second. The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) recommendation to move from RSA-1048 bit to RSA-2048 bit encryption continues to stress CPU resources and the AHA solution works to offload this requirement for the end user. These new boards accelerate RSA (key lengths up to 4K), Diffie-Hellman, and Elliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC) public key algorithms, and integrate up to 12 Gbps of bulk encryption. This will allow AHA to expand its support of data center, financial, WAN Optimization, application acceleration, and other customers including government and defense. As with AHA’s prior compression products, source code for the driver is provided under a dual GPL /BSD license. AHA’s long history of high-performance compression products and Freescale’s expertise in security solutions are a natural pairing for securing and optimizing network traffic. Combination cryptographic and compression boards, the AHA611 and AHA612, will be available later 2015.

Freescale Semiconductor, Ltd. Adds Flexible Connectivity for Kinetis 32-bit MCUs Based on ARM Cortex-M Cores

Freescale Semiconductor announced that it is extending wireless capabilities to many of its popular Kinetis MCUs with a new 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 transceiver for home automation and industrial control applications. Featuring support for multiple wireless mesh networks, Freescale’s MCR20AVHM transceiver can be paired with Kinetis MCUs based on ARM Cortex-M0+ and Cortex-M4 technology to implement low-power wireless protocols and applications including Thread, ZigBee and multiple proprietary solutions. Freescale’s new MCR20AVHM wireless transceiver features outstanding RF performance, low-power operation, small footprint size and simple integration with Freescale’s Kinetis MCUs, thereby exposing a host of existing end-products to the fast-growing Internet of Things (IoT) market. The new transceiver also features hardware dual PAN functionality which enables communication with multiple networks via a single radio, as well as antenna diversity for robust RF performance in harsh environments. Development Tools and Support: Customers can leverage Freescale’s Freedom development kit for the MCR20AVHM and connect it to the Kinetis KL46 and K64F Freedom boards for a full development system. Enablement support for the MCR20AVHM includes a compliant IEEE 802.15.4-2011 PHY-MAC implementation based on the existing Kinetis Software Development Kit (SDK), which enables portability to other Kinetis devices beyond the initially targeted KL46 and K64F microcontrollers.
