Project Details

Description

CRISP is funded by the European Community under ESPRIT IV.
CRISP is a follow-on project of the ESPRIT III funded project
SOScard.

The Institute for Applied Information Processing has designed,
built, and optimized the Cryptographic Logic Unit (CLU)
for this project. The CLU is a full-custom
scalable VLSI-macrocell design for cryptographic functions,
symmetric as well as asymmetric. The CLU may be
incorporated in other silicon designs and is available
with a broad spectrum of interfacing options, such as
OMI's PI-bus, PCMCIA, and a variety of custom interfaces.

The CLU has been designed with the low power budget of
smartcards in mind. But, due to the scalability of the
design it easily copes with other power, speed, and
area tradeoff requirements.
