Encryption of FPGA design

Hello,

 

I'm using the following devices:

5AGXFB1H4F35I3G
5SGXEA3H2F35I2L
5SGXEB6R2F40I2LN

 

Is it possible to encrypt the firmware running on those devices ?

The goal is to prevent someone to do a "reverse engineering" of the VHDL code.

 

Thank you,

Zvika

Hi,


Does the above reply help? I believe you are looking for a way to encrypt your VHDL module, not your hardware right?


For Quartus Prime Pro you can use IEEE 1735 to encrypt and decrypt your RTL code.


For Quartus Prime Standard we offer Ampcrypt/Amplic tool to encrypt your RTL code. However you would need to contact your local sales representative to obtain this tool.

Nurina

Hi,


May I know which Quartus version you're using?

Hi,

The Quartus version is not a problem.

If required, we can upgrade to any version that supports this feature.

 

Thank you,
