This lab application note describes the creation and implementation of a single chip cryptography (SCC) system using redundant Keccak hash modules with compare logic. Complete step-by-step instructions are given for the entire process, explaining the use of the Isolation Design Flow (IDF). This document explains how to implement isolated functions in a single AMD Zynq™ 7000 SoC device for the example SCC solution. Even though this application note explains how to implement a design using the IDF for a Zynq 7000 device, the same process can be used to implement an IDF design using any 7 series FPGA device.

With this application note, designers can develop a fail-safe single chip solution using the IDF that meets fail-safe and physical security requirements for an example high-assurance application. This application note is similar to the application note 7 series Isolation Design Flow Lab Using ISE Design Suite 14.4 (XAPP1085) with the primary difference being this document is specific to using the AMD Vivado™ Design Suite for Zynq 7000 SoC devices, whereas 7 Series Isolation Design Flow Lab Using ISE Design Suite 14.4 (XAPP1085) is specific to using the AMD ISE® Design Suite for developing IDF designs for 7 series FPGA devices. The rules for IDF defined in this application note do not differ from those defined in XAPP1085, but the methodology for implementation using Vivado tools does.
