Locking-Based Design-For-Security Methodology To Prevent Piracy of RF transceiver ICs

A new technical paper titled "Anti-Piracy Design of RF Transceivers" was published by researchers at Sorbonne Universite (France). Abstract: "We present a locking-based design-for-security methodology to prevent piracy of RF transceiver integrated circuits. The solution is called SyncLock as it locks the synchronization of the transmitter with the receiver. If a key other than the secret ... » read more

Quantum: Pairing Cooper Pairs Magnifies The Phase Fluctuations of the Ground State

New technical paper titled "Magnifying Quantum Phase Fluctuations with Cooper-Pair Pairing" from researchers at Université PSL, CNRS, Sorbonne Université, Université Paris-Diderot, Inria de Paris, PSL Research University. Abstract "Remarkably, complex assemblies of superconducting wires, electrodes, and Josephson junctions are compactly described by a handful of collective phase degrees ... » read more
