The Importance Of Memory Encryption For Protecting Data In Use thumbnail

Nowadays, as SoC (System-on-a-Chip) systems become more and more complex, security functions must grow accordingly to protect the semiconductor devices themselves and the sensitive information residing on or passing through them. While a Root of Trust security solution built into the SoCs can protect the chip and data resident therein (data at rest), many other …

Building Security Into ICs From The Ground Up thumbnail

Cyberattacks are becoming more frequent and more sophisticated, but they also are starting to compromise platforms that until recently were considered unbreakable. Consider blockchains, for example, which were developed as secure, distributed ledger platforms. All of them must be updated with the same data for a transaction to proceed. But earlier this year a blockchain …

Digitalizing Water Monitoring thumbnail

Managing water resources has always been important, but that monitoring is becoming increasingly high-tech and much more useful. Rather than a spot check at the tap, or a crude measurement of water levels in a reservoir, chips are making it possible to monitor and measure water quantity and quality at the source, wherever it is …

New Neural Processors Address Emerging Neural Networks thumbnail

It’s been ten years since AlexNet, a deep learning convolutional neural network (CNN) model running on GPUs, displaced more traditional vision processing algorithms to win the ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Competition (ILSVRC). AlexNet, and its successors, provided significant improvements in object classification accuracy at the cost of intense computational complexity and large datasets. In …

Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound Innovation Using UltraFast Algorithms thumbnail

Medical ultrasound is the most attractive among all diagnostic imaging systems due to its least-invasive nature and lack of any radiation. As medical ultrasound continues to grow in wider range of applications for its non-invasive nature and for its ability to see soft-tissue images, there is growing demand in supporting advanced imaging techniques in ultrasound …

Simulate Rotor Hub Vortex Shedding In Helicopters thumbnail

Although helicopter aerodynamics involves the same forces that arise in airplane aerodynamics, these forces occur differently due to fluid flow dynamics across the aircraft. Helicopters take advantage of the free stream flow along a rotor blade to produce lift and thrust. In rotating systems, the rotor hub clasps the blades and connects them to the main shaft of the …
