DCD-SEMI introduces secure & comprehensive CAN-ALL solutions for automotive

CAN-ALL implements a CAN bus controller that performs serial communication according to the CAN 2.0, CAN FD specifications, and soon CAN XL. It supports the original Bosch protocol and ISO specifications like ISO 11898. – We’re proud that our solutions fuel modern automotive, like e.g. the most electronically advanced car available on the market – explains Jacek Hanke, DCD-SEMI’s CEO. We understand that security solutions are the key, that’s why our CAN-ALL ecosystem utilizes the most advanced and sophisticated security standards.

Unique error detection functions (which increase communication reliability) and fault confinement (which guarantees network-wide data consistency) has decided about CAN’s popularity. Because of its fundamental role in all aspects of security and safety, trustworthy implementations are crucial. The CAN-ALL core is easy to use and integrate, featuring programmable interrupts, data, and baud rates; a configurable number of independently programmable acceptance filters; and a generic processor interface or optionally an AMBA APB, or AHB-Lite interface. It implements a flexible buffering scheme, allowing fine-tuning of the core size to satisfy the requirements of each specific application.

As Jacek Hanke suggests: “The IP core is available in two versions – Basic and Safety-Enhanced. As always, we’re offering IP Cores tailored to the project needs, that’s why it’s only up to the engineer, which option shall we provide”.

The safety enhanced solution’s been developed as ISO26262-10 Safety Element out of Context. It can optionally be improved by necessary safety mechanisms and provide detailed safety documentation: all ISO26262 soft IP SEooC required work products, which include complete Failure Modes Effects and Detection Analysis FMEDA analysis with step-by-step instruction to help to integrate the IP into the customer’s system and to conduct the system-level safety analysis. All the safety-related work products were checked by a third-party, independent audit.

The conducted safety analysis depicts, that the safety metrics are fulfilled and both IPs reach the Automotive Safety Integrity Level ASIL-B (Single Point Fault Metric SPFM > 90%, Latent Fault Metric LFM > 60%). DCD-SEMI delivers a complete FMEDA analysis with step-by-step instruction to help to integrate the IP into the customer’s system and to conduct the system-level safety analysis.

This ASIL-B ready design may easily be used in Automotive Safety Systems at the ASIL-B level, but DCD-SEMI may optionally deliver higher ASIL level ready IP.

SHA IP Core with native SHA2-256 HMAC support

Our latest DSHA2-256 IP Core is a universal solution which efficiently accelerates SHA2-256 hash with native HMAC mode. This IP targets authenticity and data integrity verification in digital signature protocols and all aspects of secured communication. It’s worth to mention that due to its unique features, the DSHA2-256 IP Core might also be used in crypto currency computations acceleration.

The DCD’s DSHA2-256 is a universal solution which accelerates SHA2-256 hash function compliant with FIPS PUB 180-4. It computes message digest either in 256 and 224 bit modes. Allowed input message length is up to 264 – 1 bit. The core is fully configurable, which significantly reduces design time. – Native support of the SHA2-256 HMAC (keyed-Hash Message Authentication Code) is a… key – says Jacek Hanke, DCD’s CEO – this cryptographic function defined in RFC 2104 is a must in all kinds of secured communication.

The DSHA2-256 is suitable for authenticity and data integrity verification in digital signature protocols and all other communication where security is the key. It might also be used in crypto currency computations accelerating. DCD’s IP Core offers context swapping feature which is extremely useful in complex systems with a task’s preemption mechanism and software managed or custom HMAC scheme.

SHA2 is a family of cryptography secure one-way compression functions based on Merkle-Damgard structure, the 256 version sequentially process 512 bit input blocks during 64 rounds. From arbitrary length input message (maximum 264 – 1 bits) it produces fixed 256 or 224 bit length digest in a way that it is practically infeasible to invert it (get original message from its digest). Such property is called a one-way function.  Cryptographic security of SHA2-256 is assumed at 128 bit level (112 bit in case of SHA2-224) which makes it appropriate to use in security applications. Some of them need to prove knowledge or possession of some secret data while computing message digest. For such authentication purpose the HMAC function has been designed. It combines both secret key and cryptography secure hash function (like SHA2-256).

DCAN-FD, CAN with Flexible Data Rate

DCAN FD, a Configurable CAN Bus Controller with Flexible Data-Rate targets autonomous cars & ADAS systems

 

DCD-SEMI, an IP Core provider and a System-on-Chip design house from Poland, has introduced the newest IP Core. The DCAN FD IP Core is a configurable CAN Bus controller with Flexible Data-Rate. It conforms to Bosch CAN 2.0B specification (2.0B Active) and CAN FD (flexible data-rate) in accordance to ISO 11898-1:2015. The improved protocol overcomes standard CAN limits: data can be transmitted faster than with 1 Mbps (even up to 8Mbps) and the payload (data field) is up to 64 byte long. When only one node is transmitting, the bit-rate can be increased, because no nodes need to be synchronized.

Poland, Bytom, September the 26th, 2016. The DCAN FD is a standalone controller for the Controller Area Network (CAN), widely used in automotive and industrial applications. It conforms to Bosch CAN 2.0B specification (2.0B Active) and CAN FD (flexible data-rate) – in accordance to ISO 11898-1:2015.

Standard CAN requirements become insufficient in modern automotive. The carmakers demand more bandwidth and more throughputs for most CAN-based in-vehicle networks. The DCAN FD IP Core is also a good alternative for non-automotive projects where not the increasing speed is the target. The longer payload (more than 8 byte) becomes crucial then.

The improved protocol overcomes standard CAN limits: data can be transmitted faster than with 1 Mbps (even up to 8 Mbps) and the payload (data field) is up to 64 byte long. When only one node is transmitting, the bit-rate can be increased, because no nodes need to be synchronized. Of course, before the transmission of the ACK slot bit, the nodes need to be re-synchronized. – The core has a simple CPU interface (8/16/32 bit configurable data width), with small or big endian addressing scheme – explains Tomasz Krzyzak, VCEO in DCD-SEMI. Hardware message filtering and 128 byte receive FIFO enable back-to-back message reception, with minimum CPU load. The DCAN FD is described at RTL level, allowing target use in FPGA or ASIC technologies.
