Renesas Technology Corp., is a provider of embedded security solutions for mobile devices and flash based storage, has included Discretix Inc.'s CryptoCell security platform in its entire range of SH-Mobile processors.

Renesas will embed the CryptoCell into future SH-Mobile processors at the chipset level providing the mobile device with a much greater level of security. The company believes that having a hardware-based solution also improves performance and reduces power consumption, making security functions transparent to the user. CryptoCell incorporates software components and device toolkits that can be used by wireless applications developers when embedding security into their applications.

"By selecting Discretix, we will be able to develop new and innovative security solutions for our OEM customers," said Shinichi Yoshioka, department manager, mobile SoC design department, system solution business group at Renesas. "Security is an important foundation of our roadmap going forward. We found the CryptoCell solution to have a clear technology edge that enables us to address both current and future market requirements," Yoshioka added.

Renesas expects to introduce SH-Mobile processors incorporating the Discretix technology in mobile devices on 2.5G and 3G networks in Asia, Europe and the U.S. during the third quarter of next year.
