Intel says DDR4 is ramping quickly

Last week at IDF 2016, Intel executive Geof Findley presented a comprehensive overview of the memory industry ecosystem. According to Findley, DDR4 is ramping quickly and should hit 31% of shipments during the second quarter of 2016. With volume shipments kicking off in 2014, almost all servers are now shipping with DDR4, while most PCs […]

Building a seismic supercomputer in the shadow of Dennard Scaling

Bert Beals of Cray Inc. recently told the Digital Energy Journal that the industry can no longer simply build an efficient supercomputer for seismic processing by simply adding more processors. Indeed, because Dennard Scaling no longer applies, advanced microprocessors now require more power and additional cooling for heat dissipation. Moreover, even though engineers might fit […]

Are today’s avionics systems more vulnerable to cyberattacks and to side channel attacks?

Cybersecurity and aviation experts believe a growing number of commercial aircraft could be vulnerable to on board computers being hacked or taken over remotely by passengers with malicious intent.

Safecracking goes high-tech with side-channel attacks

During the early days of safecracking, rudimentary rotary locks were compromised by feel or sound to determine the correct combination. Following in this tradition, a security researcher known as Plore recently demonstrated how side-channel attacks can be exploited to unlock “high security” electronic safes without leaving any evidence of unauthorized access.

Smart Data Acceleration with FPGAs and DRAM

The proliferation of connected devices has significantly increased the amount of data being captured, moved and analyzed. This trend is expected to continue well into the foreseeable future as the rapidly burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) ramps up. Perhaps not surprisingly, the exponential increase in data has created a number of new bottlenecks in data […]

Protecting avionic systems from side-channel attack

Asaf Ashkenazi, a senior director of product marketing at Rambus’ security division, recently sat down with Neil Tyler of NewElectronicsto discuss the potential threat side-channel attacks pose to avionic systems. As Tyler points out, encryption is typically used to protect aerospace platforms. Although it is difficult to break the cryptographic algorithm itself, devices can readily […]

ChipEstimate and Rambus look beyond DDR4

Frank Ferro, a senior director of product management at Rambus, has penned an article for ChipEstimate about the future of DRAM in the age of the IoT. According to Ferro, the semiconductor industry has traditionally relied on Dennard Scaling and Moore’s Law to ensure the creation of ever more advanced process nodes at a steady cadence. […]

Rambus eyes the future of smart ticketing

Now a part of Rambus’ security division, Ecebs provides smartcard solutions for governments, transport operators, banks and systems integrators. This makes Rambus one of the leading providers of ITSO-compliant smart ticketing solutions. The strategic addition of Ecebs to our security division has allowed us to create a more comprehensive and dynamic product stack. At the […]

Let’s talk about VIDITY and 4K UHD

Home Media Magazine staff recently sat down with David Huerta, GM of the Secure Content Storage Association (SCSA), to talk aboutVIDITY. Essentially, VIDITY allows consumers to download, store and play 4K Ultra HD movies with high dynamic range (HDR) across a plethora of devices. “With VIDITY, a single content purchase gives the consumer comprehensive ownership […]

Rambus inks security licensing agreement with Idaho Scientific

Rambus has signed an agreement with Idaho Scientific to license its Differential Power Analysis (DPA) countermeasures. According to Dr. Martin Scott, general manager of Rambus’s Security Division, the DPA countermeasures will be used in Idaho Scientific’s FPGA and defense ASIC security IP Cores. “Today’s leading aerospace and defense companies are looking for solutions to counter […]
