Advance Encryption Standard (AES), has received significant interest over the past decade due to its performance and security level. In this paper, we propose a compact 8-bit AES crypto-processor for area constrained and low power applications where both encryption and decryption is needed. The cycle count of the design is the least among previously reported 8-bit AES architectures and the throughput is 203 Mbps. The AES core consumes 5.6k gates in 0.18 μm standard-cell CMOS technology. The power consumption of the core is 49 μW/MHz at 128 MHz which is the minimum power reported thus far.
