FPGA family beefs up security functions

SecureFPGA is the latest product line from GOWIN Semiconductor, a China-based programmable logic company. It is targeted at endpoint and server management applications utilising built-in security functions to eliminate the rise of security attacks and breaches in edge computing. 

The product family uses physically unclonable functionality (PUF) to establish a Root of Trust on board the FPGA.  Once configured, the device can create unique keys for encryption/decryption and authentication functions.  Standard routines like secure boot, secure download, and key exchange can be done effortlessly. 

“PUF security provides a root of trust without storing sensitive information in non-volatile memory, “ stated Grant Jennings, Director of International Marketing for GOWIN. “Now devices and platforms can be uniquely identified, verify firmware signatures, generate keys and encrypt data with a root of trust established on power up.”

“GOWIN’s SecureFPGA’s offer a complete cryptographic solution to securely connect endpoints to the cloud,” added Scott Casper, Director of Sales for GOWIN Semiconductor, “with this new device, our customers can deploy endpoint products into the market with security built in.” 

The SecureFPGA 2K LUT version will be sampling in Q3’2019.  The SecureFPGA 4K LUT version is scheduled to sample and mass production in Q4’2019.
