Barco Silex announced that Dialog Semiconductor successfully integrated the Barco Silex BA431 IP core into its short range wireless communication ASIC. This core is a FIPS-140-2-certified deterministic random bit generator (DRGB) combined with a True Random Generator (TRNG) designed to enable secure cryptography.

 

Today’s short-range wireless applications transmit an exponentially increasing amount of data and voice. For many of these applications, it is crucial to have a reliable security against eavesdropping or data manipulation. But the reliability of such a cryptographic module depends on its ability to generate random bits that are unpredictable even to the strongest adversary.

 

“To meet this need, we designed a true random number generator, as an IP block for ASIC and FPGA solutions,” said Sébastien Rabou, Crypto IP Product Manager at Barco Silex. “Our BA431 block is a purely digital solution. This solution combined with our DRBG has been validated with the NIST800-22 test suite on silicon and is FIPS-140-2 certified, and is considered as an extra quality insurance to our customers”.

 

Dialog’s short-range wireless ICs are used in devices ranging from DECT phones and wireless headsets to game controllers. They are among the most efficient in the industry, ensuring e.g. a markedly long battery life. To help expand their offering, Dialog designed a new IC, for which they chose to integrate the Barco Silex DRGB solution. In addition to being state-of-the-art, Barco Silex’ offer is an off-the-shelf solution with easy interfaces; a solution that has been silicon-proven in various solutions.
