In this paper, an ASIC implementation of a processor for generic computations of the type u = ab/c in the Galois field GF(2^m) is described. This algorithm can perform the operations in an Elliptic Curve Crypto (ECC) processor. In this case the hardware operates in the field defined by a given irreducible polynomial. The area and timing performance of the processor are discussed for a 0.35 um ASIC technology.
