DESCRIPTION/FUNCTION


The CORNFIELD Multi-Chip Module (MCM) provides simultaneous independent encryption/decryption of one or more channels of synchronous data. The CORNFIELD is software programmable providing flexibility for future algorithms and backwards compatibility for existing algorithms. All algorithms and keys can be loaded through the DS-101 or DS-102 fill port interfaces and can store up to 8 algorithms and 64 keys.

The CORNFIELD will provide over-the-air rekey (OTAR) functionality, algorithm storage, power transient detection, and built-in test capability. The CORNFIELD provides four modes of operation including high performance mode, low-power mode, sleep mode, and battery backup mode. In high performance mode, the CORNFIELD can process data rates up to 40 Mbps per channel. In the low-power mode, the CORNFIELD can process data rates up to 2 Mbps per channel. In the sleep mode, the clock to the encryption/decryption channels is internally inhibited. Data will not be processed in the sleep mode. During the battery backup mode, the MCM is turned off while keys are preserved.


CHARACTERISTICS
