Beyond Semiconductor
Beyond SHA-3 Secure Hash Function IP Core

The Beyond SHA-3 is a high-throughput, area-efficient hardware implementation of the SHA-3 cryptographic hashing functions, compliant to NISTS’s FIPS 180-4 and FIPS 202 standards.

Providing all four hash functions, Beyond’s SHA-3 hardware implementation has been optimized for applications that require fast block processing without excessive logic utilization. Simple input / output interface, adjustable bus widths and module properties, allow designers to seamlessly adapt the core to desired architectures, meeting demanding speed and area requirements.
