IT security is a long chain made of people, policies, procedures, software and hardware. It is only as strong as its weakest link. We, at Invia, focus on the hardware link by securing Integrated Circuits (ICs). From communication System-on-Chips (SoCs) to contactless authentication tags and chip card microcontrollers, all semiconductor devices deployed in the public domain are increasingly subject to hardware attacks.
Because security needs to be addressed at each and every level, IC design should benefit from state-of-the-art technics. Invia's mission is to provide silicon proven analog, digital and software Intellectual Properties (IPs) that strengthen your silicon platforms. Our product portfolio is built around four categories: Cryptography IPs, Detection IPs, Infrastructure IPs and Interface IPs.
Cryptography IPs cover algorithms such as DES, AES, RSA and Elliptic Curves. These algorithms are available in the form of low gate-count hardware implementations with standard interfaces or standalone software libraries ASM-optimized for most 32-bit microcontrollers and hardened against the latest attacks.
Detection IPs are key solutions to sense and respond to security threats ranging from fault-injection attacks - through voltage, clock, temperature, laser or electromagnetic pulses - to invasive attacks and side-channel attacks.
Infrastructure IPs is the bedrock of silicon security: secure processors, power managers and secure clock generators are the foundations of any secure platform.
Interface IPs are turnkey implementations of standard-based communication protocols that are popular in secure elements such as smart card interface (ISO 7816-3), Single Wire Protocol (SWP) and NFC (ISO 14443).
We are committed to accelerate your product's time-to-market while reducing integration risks. All our IPs are designed for straightforward integration into your design flow. We provide comprehensive documentation and quality support. We support the major Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools for analog simulation, digital synthesis and back-end design.
We put a strong emphasis on verification and silicon validation. Our product engineering team achieves the highest manufacturing yields to address markets with razor-thin margins. All our IPs have proven track records through volume production.
Last, our involvement in several national research projects guarantees that our products are based on the latest innovations; a quarter of our R&D headcount are PhDs.
