Lattice Semiconductor has launched a secure control FPGA with agile cryptography support.

The Nexus-based MachXO5D-NX FPGA family and Sentry software stack are aimed at evolving security landscape with industry-standard compliant, crypto-agile, and hardware root of trus with integrated flash as well as fail-safe remote field updates for reliable and secure product lifecycle management.

The latest version of the Lattice Sentry stack includes customizable FPGA-based platform firmware resiliency (PFR) for the MachXO5D-NX family.

The combined FPGA and stack supports security algorithms specified by the Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Suite for bitstream and user data protection, including AES-256, ECDSA-384/521, SHA2-256,384/512, and RSA 3072/4096.

An immutable boot ROM enables secure-dual boot with integrated flash for fail safe updates while a Unique Device Secret (UDS) protects device identity. There is integrated non-volatile configuration memory and up to 57 Mb of configurable user flash memory (UFM) for user data storage and management and a fully configurable programming interface via SPI and JTAG locking control preventing advanced external attacks.

The v4.0 Sentry stack enables NIST SP800-193 compliant PFR solution development for communications, computing, industrial, and automotive applications with multiple QSPI/SPI monitoring with I2C peripheral attack protection demonstration as well as SPDM and MCTP support for efficient platform management and secure and seamless server operations.

A new design workspace template reference design that enables PFR 4.0 solution with I3C support, newer crypto algorithms (ECC384/512), and full DC-SCM compatibility and there are expanded plug-and-play design tools and reference designs with workspace template, and policy, provisioning, and manifest generator.

“At Lattice, we’re focused on addressing our customers’ evolving security needs and helping them stay ahead of accelerating cyberthreats to system data and infrastructure,” said Dan Mansur, Corporate Vice President of Product Marketing at Lattice Semiconductor.

“Crypto-agile security based on hardware root of trust devices is increasingly fundamental in this digital age, and we’re excited to further expand our product portfolio with the MachXO5D-NX FPGA family and the latest Sentry solution stack release.”

The MachXO5D-NX FPGA family and Sentry stack are supported by the latest releases of the Lattice Radiant and Propel design software.
