There are many techniques available for hackers to gain access to a system and obtain secret keys or other proprietary information– from invasive methods, such as microprobing, to non-invasive methods, such as cryptoanalysis. However, one of the easiest and most effective ways to extract the contents of a chip is through a side-channel attack using […]


STMicroelectronics is to design the Kilopass XPM IP one-time programmable (OTP), anti-fuse, non-volatile memory (NVM) memory into an ADAS IC. Implemented in the advanced FinFet process from TSMC, the XPM IP stores configuration settings for automotive peripheral sensors. Click here for story.


Keeping a car’s crash data secure. JULY 6TH, 2017 – BY: PAOLO PIACENTINI Driving a modern car or truck today is like driving a complex computer system which has the scope to take people and freight from one geographic point to another through the infrastructure and, to do so, it just happens it has an engine […]


Gabe Moretti, Senior Editor, Security is one of the essential ingredients of the success of IoT architectures.  There are two major sides to security: data security and functional security.  Data security refers to the avoidance that data contained in a system is appropriated illegally.  Functional security refers to having a particular system function in a […]


By Claire Swedberg, Northrop Grumman is heading a four-year project for the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) to devise a tiny radio frequency identification chip that could prevent the counterfeiting of electronic parts that end up in avionics or circuit boards for other devices. The goal, explains Scott Suko, a Northrop Grumman consulting engineer, […]

Its VLT for vertically layered […]

While the memory contents for a ROM are set at design/manufacturing time, Programmable Read Only memories (PROM) and more recently One-Time Programmable (OTP) devices can be programmed after manufacturing making them a lot more flexible. Once programmed, or blown, the contents cannot be changed and the contents are retained after power is removed. Click here […]

Ron Neale, Independant Electrical/Electronic Manufacturing Professional 12/31/2016 Original Article Is there a place for a volatile DRAM replacement? While the VLT as a DRAM replacement might be attractive, any success hinges on effective and innovative solutions to some major problems. The use of latched threshold switching devices to replace a DRAM, where the off and […]
