XIP1113B: AES256-GCM Balanced IP Core

Balanced IP core implementing AES-256 in GCM mode of operation

AES Galois Counter Mode (GCM) is a popular Authenticated Encryption with Associated Data (AEAD) cipher and its example use cases include securing TLS traffic.

Easy integration with other FPGA logic, as the functionality of XIP1113B does not rely on any FPGA family specific features.


  • Compact resource requirements: The entire XIP1113B requires 6134 Lookup Tables (4LUTs) (Lattice ECP5), and does not require any multipliers, DSPBlocks or internal memory in a typical FPGA implementation.
  • Performance: Despite its compact size, XIP1113B achieves a throughput in the Gbps range, for example 1.08+ Gbps in Lattice ECP5.
  • Standard Compliance: XIP1113B is fully compliant with both the Advanced Encryption Algorithm (AES) standard FIPS-197 as well as with the Galois Counter Mode (GCM) standard SP 800-38D.
