C29x PCI Express Adapter Platform - Fact Sheet

C29x Family of Crypto Coprocessors
C29x PCI Express
Adapter Platform
Overview
The C29x PCI Express® (PCIe) Adapter Platform is an ideal hardware and software
development platform for high-performance networking applications such as
unified threat management, application delivery controllers and hardware security
modules. It is based upon Freescale’s C29x crypto coprocessor family and is
fabricated in a small and efficient half length x4 PCI Express form factor. The
C29x PCIe Adapter Platform adds flexibility for developers needing to integrate
into a hosted development environment or can serve as a standalone bench-top
embedded system. With the integration of dual GbE interfaces and Freescale’s
Linux® software development kit (SDK), implementing your newest innovations is a
snap right out of the box.

technology, first introduced in the Freescale
QorIQ communications platform, gives the
coprocessor both secure boot and storage
capability, ensuring that factory-loaded keys
can only be decrypted and used by the
coprocessor when it is executing trusted
software. Additionally, the C29x family of
crypto coprocessors offers breakthrough
performance per dollar with scalable power

complement for data center and network
security appliances.
The C29x crypto coprocessor family combines
