Ahoy! Anti-Piracy Techniques

Tue, 2018-08-14 03:51 -- root
Piracy attacks have been threatening the IC industry. This session explores the new territories of trusted manufacturing in reversible computing, 3D ICs, analog mixed-signal, and timing countermeasures. The first paper explains how reversible circuits can be used to prevent piracy and reverse engineering. The second paper proposes an attack on timing locks. The third one extends the boundary of logic locking to analog and mixed-signal systems, and the last paper solves split manufacturing and camouflaging problems in 3D systems.

Analytical Techniques in Design Planning

Tue, 2018-08-14 03:51 -- root
The papers in this session propose techniques to address different challenges in the physical design flow. The first paper considers the thermal aspect of design during the floorplanning stage. The second paper proposes an analytical solution of Poisson's equation to solve global placement, and the third one suggests proximal group ADMM approach for foggy and proximity effects-aware placement. Finally, the fourth paper discusses efficient partitioning and grouping for Timing-driven Multiplexing in FPGA designs.

NSF Workshop on Internet-of-Things (IoT) Systems

Tue, 2018-08-14 03:51 -- root


Internet-of-Things systems are widely used in disciplines including manufacturing, logistics, and medicine. As IoT systems increase in scope and complexity, new challenges are presented.  The workshop will explore emerging challenges and identify research opportunities with the goal of improving the capabilities and use case repertoire of IoT technology.  The workshop will develop a report on IoT systems that will be broadly distributed.
