Silicon Verified ASIC Implementation for Saber


New research paper from Purdue University, KU Leuven, and Intel Labs titled "A 334uW 0.158mm2 Saber Learning with Rounding based Post-Quantum Crypto Accelerator." Abstract: "National Institute of Standard & Technology (NIST) is currently running a multi-year-long standardization procedure to select quantum-safe or post-quantum cryptographic schemes to be used in the future. Saber is the... » read more

Measuring Frequency Dependence Across 5G mmWave Bands (NIST)


New research paper from NIST, "Methodology for Measuring the Frequency Dependence of Multipath Channels Across the Millimeter-Wave Spectrum." Abstract "Millimeter-wave (mmWave) communications promise Gigabit/s data rates thanks to the availability of large swaths of bandwidth between 10–100 GHz. Although cellular operators prefer the lower portions of the spectrum due to popular belief ... » read more

Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


Automotive, mobility Stellantis is buying Share Now, a car sharing service owned by BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Through the acquisition, Stellantis will be adding 3.4 million car sharing customers, 10,000 vehicles, and 14 new European cities to its Free2move car sharing service, which currently has 2 million users, 2,500 vehicles, and has 7 “mobility hubs” in the U.S. and Europe. ShareNow was a... » read more

Data-driven RRAM device models using Kriging interpolation


New technical paper from The George Washington University and NIST with support from DARPA and others. Abstract "A two-tier Kriging interpolation approach is proposed to model jump tables for resistive switches. Originally developed for mining and geostatistics, its locality of the calculation makes this approach particularly powerful for modeling electronic devices with complex behavior la... » read more

Complex Chips Make Security More Difficult


Semiconductor supply chain management is becoming more complex with many more moving parts as chips become increasingly disaggregated, making it difficult to ensure where parts originated and whether they have been compromised before they are added into advanced chips or packages. In the past, supply chain concerns largely focused primarily on counterfeit parts or gray-market substitutions u... » read more

Technical Paper Round-Up: April 5


Neuromorphic chips, transistor defect detection, quantum, pellicles, BEV mobile charging, copper wire bonding, LrWPAN, batteries and superconductivity top the past week's technical papers. They also point to a rising level of government investment, and collaborations between schools that historically haven't worked closely together, including one that involves schools on different continents. ... » read more

NIST Modifies & Improves Technique For Detecting Transistor Defects


Abstract "We utilize a frequency-modulated charge pumping methodology to measure quickly and conveniently single “charge per cycle” in highly scaled Si/SiO2 metal–oxide–semiconductor field effect transistors. This is indicative of detection and manipulation of a single interface trap spin species located at the boundary between the SiO2 gate dielectric and Si substrate (almost certainl... » read more
