Preemptive hardware multitasking is not supported in most reconfigurable systems-on-chip (rSoCs), which severely limits the scope of hardware scheduling techniques on these platforms. While modern field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) support dynamic partial reconfiguration of any region at any time, most hardware tasks cannot be preempted at arbitrary(More)
Endpoint devices for Internet-of-Things not only need to work under extremely tight power envelope of a few milliwatts, but also need to be flexible in their computing capabilities, from a few kOPS to GOPS. Near-threshold (NT) operation can achieve higher energy efficiency, and the performance scalability can be gained through parallelism. In this paper we(More)
Today’s embedded systems require resource-aware acceleration engines, which support advanced cryptographic algorithms such as elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC). The authors present an application-specific co-processor for digital signature verification according to the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) based on the NIST B-233 standard.
