The ESM-01 is the first in a family of Embedded Security Modules which are targeted at off the shelf security functions such as DTCP (the Digital Transmission Content Protection) rights management technology. This core complies with the standard specified by the DTLA (the DTCP Licensing Authority). DTCP was designed to protect high value digital content such as music and video for transmission over Firewire, USB, MOST (an automotive bus) and TCP/IP networks. This product brief outlines the ESM-01 to the extent that is possible under the confidentiality restriction agreed under the license between the DTLA and Elliptic. Detailed technical specifications for the ESM-01 can only be released to other DTCP licensees. The ESM-01 requires memory for data and contexts which is not included in the gate count. Please contact Elliptic for more information on the memory requirement.
