Solution Provides Enhanced Protection for Security Applications
ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Dec. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced the immediate availability of INVIA's differential power analysis (DPA)-resistant products on Microsemi's flash-based FPGA devices and SmartFusion®, the industry's only customizable system-on-chip (cSoC) solution which integrates an FPGA with analog functions and a hard ARM microcontroller core. DPA is a technique used by hackers to extract secret keys and compromise the security of semiconductors and tamper-resistant devices by analyzing their power consumption. Microsemi is the only major provider of cSoCs and FPGAs to hold a patent license from Cryptography Research, Inc (CRI) for DPA-countermeasures, and to offer INVIA's software libraries for AES, RSA and ECC cryptographic algorithms.

Meyreuil - June 30, 2011. INVIA, the secure semiconductor IP company, today announced the publication of a research paper related to a new class of fault-injection attacks on DLP-based cryptosystems. DLP (Discrete Logarithm Problem) are public key algorithms such as El-Gamal or DSA.
"The attack described in this paper demonstrates that it is absolutely mandatory to protect DLP-based algorithms against fault-injection attacks. Keep in mind that such attacks can be performed remotely since they do not even require physical access to the device hosting the cryptosystem" says Dr Alexandre Berzati, head of INVIA's Embedded Software group and co-author of this paper.

May 2nd, 2011 - INVIA, the secure silicon IP company - today announced the availability of a comprehensive silicon design IP for Near Field Contact (NFC) ISO 14443 standard.
The solution targets 110nm process technology and will later be migrated to other processes ranging from 350nm to 65nm.
This is a turnkey solution for silicon designers looking for NFC connectivity at 13.56 MHz.
The solution includes analog RF front-end and digital protocol.With an amazing power consumption of 0.5 mW, INVIA's solution enable NFC tags that operates within extended distance from their reader.
January 10th, 2011 – INVIA, the secure silicon IP company, today announced that Inter Chip USB IP has been successfully qualified for volume production by a leading IC vendor.
This qualification happens less than one year after delivery of the Inter Chip USB IP to the customer's design team.The qualified device is an Inter Chip USB transceiver fully compliant with the IC_USB1.0 standard for Universal Integrated Circuit Cards, also known as USB UICC cards, for the Universal Serial Bus Specification.
The qualified device is targeted at mobile devices, M2M (Machine-to-Machine) communications, PCs and USB-token applications where a USB UICC is required.
Silicon samples are available upon request. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
IT security is a long chain made of people, policies, procedures, software and hardware. It is only as strong as its weakest link. We, at INVIA, focus on the hardware link to enable secure silicon designs. From multi-core processors, large communication SoC, solid state storage to micro-controller chip cards or contactless authentication tags - all these circuits are increasingly subject to hardware attacks, namely those embedded in devices located in the public domain.
Because security needs to be addressed at each and every level of the chain, these critical semiconductor circuits deserve the best. INVIA's mission is to provide silicon proven analog and digital design IP and embedded software that strenghten your silicon design's secuirty. Our product portfoliois built around four families:
Interface IP are turnkey implementations of standard-based communication protocols that are popular in secure devices. NFC ISO 14443 and Smart Card Interface ISO 7816
Cryptography IP cover algorithm such as DES, AES, RSA and Elliptic Curves. These algorithm are available in a low gate count hardware implementation with standard AMBA interface. They are also available as stand-alone Embedded Software libraries optimized for popular 32 bits microcontrollers and protected against a number of known attacks.
Detector IP are key solutions to sense, detect and react to all sort of attacks : from fault-injection attacks by means of voltage, temperature or SET to side channel attacks and even invasive attacks where the circuit's metal layers are removed.
We are committed to accelerate your product’s time-to-market and to reduce integration risk. All our IPs are designed to integrate smoothly into your design flow. Therefore we provide comprehensive documentation and outstanding technical support. We support the major analog & digital EDA tools for digital simulation, synthesis, analog and back-end.
We put a strong emphasis on verification and silicon validation. All our IP are silicon proven with a strong silicon track record of volume production. In addition, our IP are designed taking into account Test and Yield issues because our customers serve markets with razor-thin margins.
Last, our involvement in several research project with academics guarantees that the latest and greatest innovations are built-in in our products. We also invest heavily in education:40% of our R&D headcount are PhDs.
