Smartcard chip vendor Inside Contactless SA (Aix-en-Provence, France) has made a deal with Tiempo AS (Grenoble, France), a company set up to specialize in the design of asynchronous ICs, which has produced a delay-insensitive DES cryptoprocessor as a demonstrator of its design capabilities and intellectual property.
LONDON Smartcard chip vendor Inside Contactless SA (Aix-en-Provence, France) has made a deal with Tiempo AS (Grenoble, France), a company set up to specialize in the design of asynchronous ICs, which has produced a delay-insensitive DES cryptoprocessor as a demonstrator of its design capabilities and intellectual property.
The two companies have agreed to go into partnership for the design of a next-generation chip product that incorporates asynchronous design technology.
"Tiempo technology enables the design of chips that have outstanding processing performance, low power consumption, low noise and robustness against voltage variations, and is therefore perfectly suited for use within Inside's advanced contactless chip products," said Serge Maginot, CEO of Tiempo, in a statement issued by Inside.
"We believe that the use of Tiempo asynchronous design technology can provide significant gains in performance and reduction in power consumption within our products," said Gary Chew, chief technology officer of Inside, in the same statement.
