New emLib Middleware Component for Encryption

Hilden, Germany – April 3rd, 2013

SEGGER today released the first components of its new emLib Middleware components.

The first components are encryption modules with AES and DES algorithms. As with other SEGGER Middleware components, they are highly optimized for speed as well as for size. The code is easily portable and can be used in deeply embedded systems as well as in PC applications or software for tablets or smart phones, running OSes such as iOS or Android. The code is very well tested, documented, commented and contains a verification suite. The high reusability makes it especially attractive for company-wide usage.

The code has been developed from scratch and does not use any open source or GPL code.

A Cortex-M4-based microcontroller running at 168 MHz achieves an encryption/decryption performance of 2.56 MByte/s with emLib AES. “With the introduction of the emLib product family we plan to offer complex algorithms to our customers. These components are easy to use and easy to license”, says Dirk Akemann, Marketing Manager at SEGGER.
