Computer systems performance is being improved today using two major approaches: general-purpose computers computing power increase (creation of multicore processors, multiprocessor computer systems, supercomputers), and adaptation of the computer hardware to the executed algorithm (class of algorithms). Last approach often provides application of the… (More)
– Present paper deals with a review of specific features of special-purpose and reconfigurable hardware accelerators, the criteria of their comparison have been specified, and a comparative analysis of the characteristics according to the above criteria has been carried out.
On this article the DES algorithm and comparative analysis of the DES cryptographic processor's architecture were considered. As the criteria of comparision the performance of the processor's work and equipment volume were taken.
