Being a long established provider of data security solutions, Helion's client list
is extensive, varied and geographically diverse. Our customers range from the
smallest and newest startups, right up to some of the largest and most impressive
organisations in the world.
As an example, of the 350+ licenses we have signed for our IP, we are very proud
that more than 30 of these have been with Fortune 500 companies,
six of these being companies with annual revenues exceeding 10 billion US dollars,
and many of these representing repeat business with Helion. In addition, nine out
of the top ten Defence Contractors (worldwide, by revenue) are Helion customers.
At the same time, we also enjoy working with smaller companies, and offer exactly
the same levels of support and friendly approach to everyone! Many of our customers
are employing encryption techniques for the first time, and we are always pleased
to work closely in whatever capacity, offering expert advice and guidance as and
As you can imagine, many of Helion's customers are working on very sensitive applications
which we are unable to publicise. Where possible and with permission however we do
like to show a small selection of the types of companies we proudly work with.

Some comments from our customers.......
"Helion's AES-GCM core accelerated our plans to integrate very efficient, yet high-performance crypto hardware
into our next-gen, low-power wireless SoC. The coreís modular interface made integration hassle free, allowing
us to easily wrap our value-added IP around it. Helion only made one delivery of the IP as no patches or updates
were required. The feature worked flawlessly in first silicon."
VP of Engineering
"L-3 Telemetry West has successfully implemented Helion cores and are very satisfied with the product.
Documentation, both in the Users Guide and the source code is sufficient to allow painless integration.
The core interfaces are simple providing for straight forward integration. Performance and sizing is
as advertised with no surprises. Test benches are very useful for pre-integration checkout and the
customer support exceeds our expectation."
Engineering Director of IA Products
L-3 Communications, Telemetry West
"Helionís products and services have consistently fit a variety of our needs. They are superbly easy to work with,
answering questions in clear straightforward terms. The organization of their deliverables - particularly the
concise and sensible documentation - provide for fast successful integration of their IP. I deal with many vendors,
Helion is currently my favorite by every conceivable metric."
IP Procurement Lead
"The Helion DVB-CSA core is an excellent product. It worked "out of the box" to meet our needs and allowed us
to complete our project very quickly. Helion has proved that they are experts in security IP cores.
They will be our first call for any future security needs."
Systems Engineering Manager
"The AES-GCM core functioned as expected, met our needs for performance and area, and we received quick
technical support when we needed code to be modified to eliminate lint issues when using our ASIC synthesis tools."
Strategic Sourcing Manager
"We selected the Helion's AES Standard core in order to develop a multi-channel
256-bit AES Counter-mode core with AXI interface. It was very easy to integrate
Helion's core into our Spartan-6 FPGA core. Both the documentation and the core's
interface is very concise and straightforward."
"I would say that the support from Helion has been outstanding from my initial contact all the way through
implementation. I was very impressed when I asked questions on weekends and received answers the same day.
The core was actually so easy to use I completed my implementation almost a month early. The product performed
exactly as advertised and the price made it a very affordable option to add to our system."
Sr. Hardware Engineer
Delta Digital Video
"We used Helion's cores to develop a prototype in an extremely small timeframe.
We were amazed by the quality of the product and by the level of commitment Helion Tech
showed to customize it to our needs. We were just as impressed by the quality of their
support as by their extreme reactivity! Helion's people are definitely highly skilled
professionals and we will surely think about their IP cores for our future works."
"We selected the Helion Tiny AES Core because we wanted a common,
modular, communications architecture that could translate gracefully
from the smallest, single-channel, micro-footprint radio up to our
larger multi-channel SATCOM terminals. We received a very well
thought-out core that was easy to integrate into our designs.
Due to the straight-forward and solid interface presented by the core,
we expended virtually no debug effort during our integrations."
Lead Systems Security Engineer
L-3 Communications, Linkabit Division
"We use Helion AES and RSA cores for our products ("Clipster" workstation for
HDTV and Film signals and DCI compliant devices) because they are easy to use
and highly efficient (implementation resources and speed). The documentation
and the support are excellent, reliable and professional."
DVS AG Digital Video Systems
"We chose Helion's Standard AES Core because it exactly fits our needs.
Helion's services have proven exemplary and their support is extremely
professional. MXI is pleased to have Helion as a partner."
HW Product Manager
"The AES core supplied by Helion Technology was of the highest quality.
The "out of the box" experience was great. We integrated it successfully
both into our Virtex FPGA and ASIC without any problems or issues."
"Helion is definitely top notch when it comes to support and we appreciate
it immensely. (They) are at the top of our list when we look at IP vendors."
