High-Level Synthesis Propels Next-Gen AI Accelerators

Everything around you is getting smarter. Artificial intelligence is not just a data center application but will be deployed in all kinds of embedded systems that we interact with daily. We expect to talk to and gesture at them. We expect them to recognize and understand us. And we expect them to operate with just a little bit of common sense. This intelligence is making these systems not just ... » read more

Ultimate Guide To Machine Learning For Embedded Systems

Machine learning is a subfield of artificial intelligence which gives computers an ability to learn from data in an iterative manner using different techniques. Our aim here being to learn and predict from data. This is a big diversion from other fields which poses the limitation of programming instructions instead of learning from them. Machine learning in embedded systems specifically target ... » read more

Attestation Scheme Monitoring The Prover Using Hardware Security Module Connected To Its System Bus (Oxford)

A technical paper titled "Hardware-assisted remote attestation design for critical embedded systems" was published by researchers at University of Oxford. Abstract (excerpt) "To reveal attack scenarios exploiting the memory regions and time windows left unattested, we propose an attestation scheme that can continuously monitor both static and dynamic memory regions with better spatial and t... » read more

Compact NN Accelerator In CodAL

Recent years of IoT/IIoT evolution resulted in an important shift from cloud-level to device-level AI processing. It enables devices to run some AI tasks locally, thus minimizing security issues, data transfer costs, and latency. The ability to run AI/ML tasks becomes a must-have when selecting an SoC or MCU for IoT and IIoT applications. Embedded devices are typically resource-constrained, ... » read more

On the Design and Misuse of Microcoded (Embedded) Processors — A Cautionary Note

Abstract:  "Today's microprocessors often rely on microcode updates to address issues such as security or functional patches. Unfortunately, microcode update flexibility opens up new attack vectors through malicious microcode alterations. Such attacks share many features with hardware Trojans and have similar devastating consequences for system security. However, due to microcode's opaq... » read more

Fused: Closed-Loop Performance And Energy Simulation Of Embedded Systems

Energy-driven computing is an emerging paradigm that aims to fuel the proliferation of tiny and low-cost IoT sensing and monitoring devices. Energy-driven computers are generally powered by energy harvesting sources, and adapt their operation at runtime according to energy availability; thus, they must be designed and tested according to the expected dynamics of their power source. However, tod... » read more

System Design Considerations For Embedded Heterogeneous Multiprocessing (HMP)

Heterogeneous multiprocessor (HMP) systems, using functionally asymmetric compute elements, such as application processors and microcontrollers integrated within the same SoCs, are now used extensively across a wide range of applications. These SoCs are used in smart, connected devices to transform the way we live – at home, in the car, and in our cities – with even more intelligence, speed... » read more
