Securing The IoT Begins With Zero-Touch Provisioning At Scale


The path to secured IoT deployments starts with a hardware root-of-trust at the device level, a simple concept that belies the complexity of managing a chain of trust that extends from every edge device to the core of the network. The solution to this management challenge, based on a coordinated effort of domain experts, is a zero touch “chip-to-cloud” provisioning service for certificates-... » read more

Securing 5G And IoT With Fuzzing


5G will revolutionize many industries, with up to 100 times the speed, 100 times the capacity, and one-tenth the latency compared to 4G LTE. But in addition to providing superior performance, 5G expands the attack surface of apps and IoT devices that rely on this next-gen network. In addition to known security exploits, we’re bound to see unknown, novelty attacks. Fuzz testing (or fuzzing)... » read more

RF To Millimeter-Wave Front-End Component Design Trends For 5G Communications


This white paper discusses design challenges and solutions related to the "third wave" of communications, presenting several case studies in which the Cadence AWR Design Environment platform has been used to develop products for 5G and beyond. Examples include a multiband active antenna tuner for cellular internet of things (IoT) machine-type communications (mMTC) applications, a linear power a... » read more

IoT Security: Confusing And Fragmented


Security regulations for Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices are evolving around the world, but there is no consistent set of requirements that can be applied globally — and there may never be. What exists today is a patchwork of certification labs and logos. That makes it difficult for IoT-device designers to know where to get their security blessed. Unlike in data centers, where there is a ... » read more

Internet of Things (IoT)


The wide range of internet of things (IoT) applications in development today are made possible by smart devices operating across different network configurations, frequencies, power requirements, and protocols. Developing cost-effective IoT solutions requires a smart, organized approach to radio and antenna integration within a design flow that may have little to do with traditional RF product ... » read more

Smart Home Device Communication In The Era Of Hyperconnectivity


In our increasingly hyperconnected world, a fascinating area to watch is what I would call "the last 100 feet, give or take." There are many standards like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, or Thread used for IoT device connectivity. There are very active discussions about how our smart devices should be allowed to talk to other resources, like our neighbor's Wi-Fi. In the IoT's municipal and industria... » read more

Changes In Sensors And DSPs


Pulin Desai, group director for product marketing, management and business development at Cadence, talks about why processing is moving closer to the end point, how to save energy through reduced area and sensor fusion, and the impact of specialization, 3D capture and always-on circuits. » read more

Hybrid System-Level Test For RF SiP


In recent years, the proliferation of the IoT has focused attention on low-power-wireless applications. IoT modules incorporating functions such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) transceivers, MCUs, and power-management circuitry are becoming system-in-package (SiP) and even one-chip devices. Such devices increase the demand for a mass-production test environment that can measure them in a short ti... » read more

Demand, Lead Times Soar For 300mm Equipment


A surge in demand for various chips is causing select shortages and extended lead times for many types of 300mm semiconductor equipment, photomask tools, wafers, and other products. For the last several years, 200mm equipment has been in short supply in the market, but issues are now cropping up throughout the 300mm supply chain, as well. Traditionally, lead times have been three to six mont... » read more

Is AI Good Or Bad For The Planet?


Will artificial intelligence save or sink planet earth? We’re surrounded by AI. When you use the internet, take a photo, use predictive text, or watch TV, you are interacting with AI. And we are still in the early stages of this revolution in technology and our lives. But AI can require large amounts of power. Researchers have documented the astounding amount of power required to train ... » read more
