Cambridge, U.K.; Kfar Saba, Israel— ARM , a provider of 16/32-bit embedded RISC microprocessor solutions, and M-Systems , a leader in flash-based data storage products, announced Nov. 20 that they've signed a technology collaboration agreement to optimize M-Systems' SuperMAP cryptographic coprocessors for use with ARM's SecurCore family of cores.

SuperMAP cryptographic coprocessors are a family of hardware macrocells for accelerating cryptographic functions. These patented devices implement sophisticated, public-key encryption in both conventional RSA and Elliptic Curve, with single-step multiply and divide.

ARM SecurCore provides 32-bit solutions for smart card and secure integrated circuit (IC) development, offering system designers privileged access to ARM processor cores to create fast, secure e-commerce, banking, networking, mobile multimedia, identification and public transportation solutions.

The agreement complements the availability of an integrated cryptographic engine for SecurCore's cores by providing ARM's partners with an option of interfacing to the security capabilities of SuperMAP technology for their SecurCore-based solutions.

Also, as more security features are included, M-Systems' products. such as DiskOnChip and DiskOnKey, are expected to benefit from the cost savings and performance advantages from integrating SuperMAP and ARM cores.
