Renesas Technology and Discretix, Inc. have announced that the Discretix CryptoCell security platform will be included in the entire range of Renesas' SH-Mobile processors.
CryptoCell will be embedded into future SH-Mobile processors at the chipset level providing the mobile device with a much greater level of security. Having a hardware based solution also improves performance and significantly reduces power consumption, making security functions transparent to the user. CryptoCell also incorporates software components and Device Toolkits that can be used by wireless applications developers when embedding security into their applications.
Renesas Technology expects to introduce SH Mobile processors incorporating the Discretix technology in mobile devices on 2.5G and 3G networks in Asia, Europe and the US in the third quarter of 2005.
