Freescale Expands Data Center Focus With C29x Crypto Coprocessors

Underscoring its continued focus on the fast-growing data center market, Freescale Semiconductor introduces the C29x family of crypto coprocessors – a new lineup of security accelerators engineered to help the world’s top data center equipment manufacturers efficiently scale to handle dramatic increases in secure network traffic.

The new C29x crypto coprocessors enable multi-chip, single PCI-E card solutions providing more than 120K RSA-2048 operations/second and delivering more than 3x the performance of more expensive PCI-E options currently available from today’s market share leader.

“Internet traffic security requirements are increasingly stringent and complex, yet the security coprocessor market is currently served by very few vendors. Customers are asking us for high-performance, cost- and power-efficient choices for coprocessors,” said Tareq Bustami, vice president of Product Management for Freescale’s Digital Networking group. “Freescale has leveraged its communications processor leadership and 30 years of embedded security R&D investment to develop the new C29x crypto coprocessors, which offer the security and scalability data centers need to handle tremendous increases in data volume.”

Worldwide mobile data traffic is expected to increase 18-fold during the next five years (source: Cisco ® Visual Networking Index Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast, 2011 to 2016), as network security requirements increase 5x due to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommendations to move from RSA-1048 bit to RSA-2048 bit encryption. Scalable security coprocessors are expected to play a pivotal role for a range of applications, including data center/cloud computing, as well as security appliances and hardware security modules used in banking, government and defense equipment.

“Freescale’s new C29x crypto coprocessor family provides OEMs with more choices and significantly lower costs at a time when network security has never been more important,” said Joseph Byrne, senior analyst with the Linley Group. “The security coprocessor space is a potentially high-margin market for Freescale’s Digital Networking business.”
