HBM2E and GDDR6: Memory Solutions for AI


Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) growth proceeds at a lightning pace. In the past eight years, AI training capabilities have jumped by a factor of 300,000 driving rapid improvements in every aspect of computing hardware and software. Meanwhile, AI inference is being deployed across the network edge and in a broad spectrum of IoT devices including in automotive/ADAS. Training and... » read more

PCI Express 5 vs. 4: What’s New?


What’s new about PCI Express 5 (PCIe 5)? The latest PCI Express standard, PCIe 5, represents a doubling of speed over the PCIe 4.0 specifications. We’re talking about 32 Gigatransfers per second (GT/s) vs. 16GT/s, with an aggregate x16 link bandwidth of almost 128 Gigabytes per second (GBps). This speed boost is needed to support a new generation of artificial intelligence (AI) and ma... » read more

Differential Power Analysis


Authors Paul Kocher, Joshua Jaffe, and Benjamin Jun Cryptosystem designers frequently assume that secrets will be manipulated in closed, reliable computing environments. Unfortunately, actual computers and microchips leak information about the operations they process. This paper examines specific methods for analyzing power consumption measurements to and secret keys from tamper resistant d... » read more

Analysis, Modeling And Characterization Of Multi-Protocol High-Speed Serial Links


Improved analysis, modeling, characterization and correlation methods of multi-protocol high-speed transceivers that utilize T-coil to enhance the transmitter and receiver bandwidth, transmitter FIR filters and receiver CTLE and DFE equalizers is presented. The key circuit blocks are measured and modeled using IBIS-AMI models and the overall system performance including the eye diagrams, BER cu... » read more

Combating Counterfeit Semiconductors In The Military Supply Chain


The reality: semiconductors are often counterfeits. In most current implementations, semiconductor authenticity is practically impossible to guarantee. The counterfeit market for semiconductors is real, sizable and growing: • 2012: According to a report produced by the Senate Armed Services Committee, more than 1,000,000 suspect counterfeit electronic components have been used in 1,800 sep... » read more

What is Card-on-file EMV Payment Tokenization


The way we pay is changing. Consumers are now using their PC, smartphones, wearable devices and even cars to buy goods and services. The size and value of the card-not-present (CNP) market, therefore, is increasing exponentially as payment use-cases across e-commerce, m-commerce and the Internet of Things (IoT) emerge and mature. Understand the risk of card-not-present fraud, learn how to... » read more

Cost-Effective, Silicon-Based Security Reduces Risks, Achieves Competitive Advantage


IDC Spotlight, by Robert Westervelt, Research Director, Security Products, sponsored by Rambus. Device manufacturers are increasingly under pressure to address security and privacy. Cost-effective, silicon-based security is among the components that can significantly reduce the risk of physical attacks and cyberattacks and achieve a competitive advantage over both legacy and insecure solutio... » read more

Combating Counterfeit Semiconductors in the Automotive Supply Chain


The counterfeit market for semiconductors is real, sizable and growing. Industry analysts peg the current market for fake semiconductors at $75B. Counterfeit chips pose great risk to driver comfort and safety, to say nothing of the severe negative consequences they present to automaker revenues and brand. The good news is there are immediate and cost-effective measures available to secu... » read more
