The design and development of Secured Data Carrier for Cryptographic Applications is to emphasis on the transportation of crypto keys securely from key generation centre either to the network where encryption systems are installed or to the site from where the crypto keys are uploaded over air. In this paper, in appreciation of the advantages of both microcontroller and CPLD, a versatile, powerful, failsafe and small form factor device has been devised for the cryptographic applications. These devices work at very low voltage, high speed and consume very low power. These features make the PLDs more versatile and increase the product reliability to the greater extent as the device count at the system level reduces enormously.
