Board & othersSASEBO

Description

SASEBO Board is equipped with FPGA, developed under the commissioned project of Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The purpose of this project is to standardize the testing requirements of cryptographic module. SASEBO Board are developed by National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, an independent administrative institution, and Tohoku University.
The Board has been used for various evaluation experiments of side-channel attacks at domestic and overseas research institutions.

[General Features]

There are three types of SASEBO Boards: 'SASEBO-G' equipped with Xilinx FPGA, 'SASEBO-B' equipped with Altera FPGA, and 'SASEBO-W' specializing in IC card.
SASEBO-G and SASEBO-B use linear regulator power supplies to monitor detailed power waveforms in cryptographic circuits while both are not mounted with decoupling capacitors for cryptographic FPGA.
The substrate layout is designed to minimize noise.The power supply wiring patterns of the 2 FPGAs are completely isolated to avoid interference from power consumption.
Moreover, SMA connectors and shunt resistors are mounted to monitor the power waveforms on the FPGAs' VDD and GND lines respectively.

SASEBO-G

  • - Two types of Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FPGAs, xc2vp7 and xc2vp30 are used.
  • - xc2vp7 is used for cryptographic circuit implementation.
  • - xc2vp30 is used for substrate control, such as communication through RS-232C and USB interface.
  • - xc2vp30 with 32-bit processor PowerPC Core is capable of software experiments.
  • - Two 8M-bit SRAMs are mounted for software experiments on xc2vp30.

SASEBO-B

  • - Two types of Altera FPGAs are used: Stratix II EP2S15 and EP2S30.
  • - EP2S1S is used for cryptographic circuit implementation.
  • - EP2S30 is used for substrate control, such as communication through RS-232C and USB interface.
  • - EP2S30 is used for 16/32-bit processor with NIOS software core.
  • - Two 8M-bit SRAMs are mounted for software experiments on EP2S30.

SASEBO-W

  • - SASEBO-W is mounted with Xilinx (R) FPGA, SpartanTM-6 XC6S LX150, and IC card socket.
  • - SASEBO-W has the function of supplying power through a USB board.
