Securing The Semiconductor Supply Chain With Secure Provisioning


The level of awareness of supply chain risks is rising and threats are being seen on many fronts. The Semiconductor Industry Association has reported instances of counterfeit parts being detected in critical systems, such as medical devices, transportation, and infrastructure. The scope, scale, and urgency of the problem are getting the attention of industry and government alike. The semicon... » read more

Security Highlight: Honda Rolling-PWN Attack


The attack known as Rolling-PWN (CVE-2021-46145) [1] is the latest of a recent series of security issues affecting the car’s immobilizers and RKEs (Remote Keyless Entry, also known as the keyfob or remote control). Over the past years, we have seen how security researchers identified attacks that could open and even start cars from vendors like Tesla [2], Hyundai-Kia [3], VAG (Volkswagen, ... » read more

Improving Safety And Security For Tomorrow’s Autonomous Vehicles


With the evolution of autonomous vehicles, today’s cars are becoming both more connected and complex. Consumers and suppliers worldwide are demanding much more intelligence and customization, which adds pressure on product development teams to validate the underlying technology and start their design processes months earlier. Enhancements in hardware and software features also mean that the w... » read more

It includes numerous hardware security features ranging from secure boot and remote attestation to secure storage of private user data. The open-source de... » read more

Design For Security Now Essential For Chips, Systems


It's nearly impossible to create a completely secure chip or system, but much can be done to raise the level of confidence about that security. In the past, security was something of an afterthought, disconnected from the architecture and added late in the design cycle. But as chips are used increasingly in safety- and mission-critical systems, and as the value of data continues to rise, the... » read more

Rambus RT-640 Road To ISO 26262 Certification


Modern vehicles incorporate an increasing number of complex integrated circuits. Failures in automotive systems can lead to damage to property, injury or loss of life. Ensuring the reliability of electronic systems is crucial, and the ISO26262 standard documents the requirements for determining automotive functional safety. This white paper details the process for how Rambus achieved the ISO262... » read more

L5 Adoption Hinges on 5G/6G


Truly self-driving cars don’t yet exist, and research shows many consumers are wary of them anyway. What will it take to make fully autonomous cars possible? And how can automakers convince consumers to adopt such vehicles? Experts say the answer to both questions could lie in wireless communication networks. That’s because such networks offer a workaround to a major obstacle in autonomo... » read more

The Next Incarnation Of EDA


The EDA industry has incrementally addressed issues as they arise in the design of electronic systems, but is there about to be a disruption? Academia is certainly seeing that as a possibility, but not all of them see it happening for the same reason. The academic community questioned the future of EDA at the recent Design Automation Conference. Rather than EDA as we know it going away, they... » read more
