FPGAs’ write-protected configuration memory enhances security
Stephen LawElectronics Semiconductors memory semiconductors
ACROMAG XMC-7AWP and XMC-7KWP modules with a Xilinx Artix-7 or Kintex-7 FPGA feature write-protected flash memory to prevent unwanted changes to configuration files. Devices come with a user-programmable Xilinx Artix-7 or Kintex FPGA, feature write-protected flash memory to secure the configuration files. Modules are suitable for a broad range of applications such as; hardware simulation, communications, signal intelligence, adaptive filtering, and image processing. High-speed interfaces are provided for PCIe, 10GbE, LVDS, serial and other I/O signals.
