5.13. Intel® FPGA PTC - Crypto Page

The Crypto data entry page is only for Intel® Agilex™ devices with crypto blocks. Only a subset of Intel® Agilex™ devices have crypto blocks, consisting of hardened logic that can perform encryption and decryption functions. The Crypto data entry page of the Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator (PTC) allows you to configure crypto blocks for Intel® Agilex™ devices equipped with those blocks, and to obtain power estimates for crypto use.
Note: Not all Intel® Agilex™ devices have crypto blocks. Parameter entry is unavailable if the currently selected device does not have crypto blocks.

Crypto Summary

Column Heading Description
Total thermal power (W) Reports the total thermal power of the crypto blocks in watts (W).
Crypto utilization Reports the percentage utilization of the crypto block resources.

Crypto Page Information

Column Heading Description
Module Specify a name for each module in the design. This is an optional value.
Full Hierarchy Name Specify the hierarchical path relevant to this entry. This is an optional entry. When entering levels of hierarchy, the pipe character (|) denotes a level of hierarchy.
# of Instances Enter the number of crypto block instances with the same parameters.
Crypto ID Specify placement information for thermal modeling. This field is available only when # of Instances is set to 1.
AES Specify whether to enable or disable Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for the crypto block.
SM4 Specify whether to enable or disable SM4 (a block cipher used to encrypt and decrypt data) for the crypto block.
XTS Specify whether to enable or disable XEX Tweakable Block Ciphertext Stealing (a block cipher mode of operation, abbreviated as XTS) for the crypto block.
Cipher Text Stealing

Specify whether to enable or disable Cipher Text Stealing (CTS) for the crypto block. CTS can be enabled only if XTS is also enabled.

Clock Freq (MHz) Specify the frequency of the clock, in MHz.
Total Power (W) Indicates the total estimated power for this row, in watts (W).
User Comment Enter any comments. This is an optional entry.
