Cybersecurity Metrics: The Path To OT Security Maturity


In 2023, the cybersecurity challenges in the Operational Technology (OT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) landscape reached unprecedented levels. Ransomware, increasingly prevalent through new Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) models, became a widespread and costly headache. While some might argue this exaggerates the risk, the growing demand for defenses is not overstated. 2024 continues to b... » read more

RISC-V Unleashes Your Imagination


Since October 2020, Renesas has been officially active in the RISC-V microcontroller space and successfully launched two ASSP products, for motor control and voice-driven HMI systems. Now a general-purpose MCU enhances the RISC-V portfolio. It is the first MCU using a RISC-V core developed internally at Renesas. The R9A02G021 general-purpose microcontroller features an interesting mix of an... » read more

Protecting Automotive Power Distribution


It was on a warm summer’s evening aboard a cruise boat on one of Austria’s most beautiful lakes that I was co-hosting an Infineon event to conclude a professional experience week for a group of around 50 students from technical high schools in the region. It was time for the final round for us to showcase our creations. Smaller groups of around 10 students went from co-host to co-host, a... » read more

Safeguarding IoT Devices With SESIP And PSA Certified Root Of Trust IP


IoT is everywhere. By the end of 2024, it’s forecasted that there will be a staggering 207 billion IoT devices in the world, that’s 25 each for every human being on Earth. The connectivity of IoT devices brings great value for consumers and businesses alike, but with great connectivity comes greater vulnerability to a wide variety of malicious attacks from cyber criminals. IoT devices ar... » read more

Accelerate Complex Algorithms With Adaptable Signal Processing Solutions


Technology is continuously advancing and exponentially increasing the amount of data produced. Data comes from a multitude of sources and formats, requiring systems to process different algorithms. Each of these algorithms present their own challenges including low-latency and deterministic processing to keep up with incoming data rates and rapid response time. Considering that many of these se... » read more

Interoperability And Automation Yield A Scalable And Efficient Safety Workflow


By Ann Keffer, Arun Gogineni, and James Kim Cars deploying ADAS and AV features rely on complex digital and analog systems to perform critical real-time applications. The large number of faults that need to be tested in these modern automotive designs make performing safety verification using a single technology impractical. Yet, developing an optimized safety methodology with specific f... » read more

Maximizing Energy Efficiency For Automotive Chips


Silicon chips are central to today’s sophisticated advanced driver assistance systems, smart safety features, and immersive infotainment systems. Industry sources estimate that now there are over 1,000 integrated circuits (ICs), or chips, in an average ICE car, and twice as many in an average EV. Such a large amount of electronics translates into kilowatts of power being consumed – equiva... » read more

Microarchitecture Vulnerabilities: Uncovering The Root Cause Weaknesses


In early 2018, the tech industry was shocked by the discovery of hardware microarchitecture vulnerabilities that bypassed decades of work put into software and application security. Meltdown and Spectre exploited performance features in modern application processors to leak sensitive information about victim programs to an adversary. This leakage occurs through the hardware itself, meaning th... » read more

Semiconductors Beyond Nanometers


In today's world, semiconductors are essential components of our everyday lives and the backbone of our economies. From the devices we use to communicate to the machines that power our factories, semiconductors are the building blocks that enable digitalization and decarbonization. However, public and policy debates about semiconductors often focus solely on their smallest feature size, measure... » read more
