The evolution of embedded FPGAs

Brian Bailey of Semiconductor Engineering observes that systems on chip have been manufactured with numerous processing variants ranging from general-purpose CPUs to DSPs, GPUs and custom processors which are highly optimized for certain tasks. “When none of these options provide the necessary performance or consumes too much power, custom hardware takes over. But there is […]

Looking beyond Dennard Scaling

Robert H. Dennard co-authored his now-famous paper for the IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits way back in 1974. Essentially, Dennard and his engineering colleagues observed that as transistors are reduced in size, their power density stays constant. Meaning, power use stays in proportion with area, as both voltage and current scale (downward) with length.

Semiconductor Engineering highlights side-channel attacks

Brian Bailey of Semiconductor Engineering recently penned an article highlighting the danger side-channel attacks pose to connected devices and systems. “As the world begins to take security more seriously, it becomes evident that a device is only as secure as its weakest component. No device can be made secure by protecting against a single kind […]

Let’s talk about the future of mobile payments

Mobile payments currently offer a number of benefits for consumers, retailers and financial institutions. However, next-gen mobile payments will shape the contours of a new retail paradigm that can help redefine the traditional brick-and-mortar experience. Indeed, shopping will one day become a truly interactive experience, with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi beacons scanning digital profiles, stored in […]

Tom’s Hardware highlights DPA countermeasures

Earlier this week, we announced that NVIDIA had licensed Rambus’ Differential Power Analysis (DPA) countermeasures to protect its visual computing products against side-channel attacks. As Nathaniel Mott of Tom’s Hardware reports, Rambus’ countermeasures will help protect NVIDIA’s GPUs from side-channel attacks that steal encryption keys by measuring the power consumption of a device.
