For efficient hardware implementation of finite field arithmetic units, the use of a normal basis is advantageous. In this paper, two classes of architectures for multipliers over the finite field GF(2/sup m/) are proposed. These multipliers are of sequential type, i.e., after receiving the coordinates of the two input field elements, they go through k, 1 /spl les/ k /spl les/ m, iterations (i.e., clock cycles) to finally yield all the coordinates of the product in parallel. The value of k… CONTINUE READING
