A Framework To Detect Capacitance-Based Analog Hardware Trojans And Mitigate The Effects

A technical paper titled “DeMiST: Detection and Mitigation of Stealthy Analog Hardware Trojans” was published by researchers at Tennessee Tech University and Technische Universitat Wien. Abstract: “The global semiconductor supply chain involves design and fabrication at various locations, which leads to multiple security vulnerabilities, e.g., Hardware Trojan (HT) insertion. Although most HTs target digital circuits, HTs can be inserted in

Superconductor breakthrough — palladiumPalladium may be a better superconductor than even nickelates (superconductors based on nickel), according to research by TU Wien working with Japanese universities. The research shows that palladates may be a ‘Goldilocks material’ in which it can continue its superconducting state at a higher temperature. “Palladium is directly one line below nickel in the periodic table. The

Industry Research The start of smell modeling; polarons may help produce hydrogen, improve touchscreens. Modeling how the nose smells The first 3D molecular-level picture of how an odor molecule binds to and activates an odorant receptor (OR) on olfactory cells in the nose may help us understanding and eventually be used to build a map of all the receptors. Scientists

FPGAs: Automated Framework For Architecture-Space Exploration of Approximate Accelerators

A technical paper titled “autoXFPGAs: An End-to-End Automated Exploration Framework for Approximate Accelerators in FPGA-Based Systems” was published (preprint) by researchers at TU Wien, Brno University of Technology, and NYUAD. Abstract “Generation and exploration of approximate circuits and accelerators has been a prominent research domain exploring energy-efficiency and/or performance improvements. This research has predominantly focused on ASICs, while not achieving

Looking Forward To SPIE, And Beyond

On the eve of this year’s SPIE Advanced Lithography + Patterning conference, I took a look at the IEEE Devices and Systems Roadmap’s lithography section. It’s especially notable for the emergence of EUV lithography, which has quickly become critical for advanced logic. High-NA tools to support still smaller dimensions are on the horizon. In the near-term, though, the key challenge
