The reverse engineering (RE) of electronic chips and systems can be used with honest and dishonest intentions. To inhibit RE for those with dishonest intentions (e.g., piracy and counterfeiting), it is important that the community is aware of the state-of-the-art capabilities available to attackers today. In this article, we will be presenting a survey of(More)
This paper presents a new power management technique for RF circuits powered by renewable energy sources. Different from conventional systems, the performance of self-powered RF circuits is largely constrained by two factors: time-varying fading channel conditions and non-deterministic renewable energy levels. The proposed technique dynamically adjusts the(More)
This paper presents an energy-adaptive performance management technique for the design of embedded signal processing systems powered by renewable energy sources. By jointly considering the nondeterministic characteristics of renewable energy and the unique relationship between signal processing performance and the required energy consumption, a progressive(More)
