Despite the advantages offered by field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for low-power systems requiring flexible computing resources, applications with the lowest power budgets still favor microprocessors and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). In order for such systems to exploit FPGAs, an FPGA achieving minimum energy operation is needed.… (More)

Counterfeit microelectronics present a significant challenge to commercial and defense supply chains. Many modern anti-counterfeit strategies rely on manufacturer cooperation to include additional identification components. We instead propose Side Channel Authenticity Discriminant Analysis (SICADA) to leverage physical phenomena manifesting from device… (More)
Embedded systems continue to become smaller, demand greater compute capability, and target deployment in more energy-starved environments. System power budgets of less than 1 mW are increasingly common, while standby power is brought as close to zero as possible. While field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have historically been used as compute engines in… (More)
Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are frequently used in low power systems because they can implement the same functionality as a microprocessor in a more energy-efficient manner while still offering the benefits of low development time and cost relative to an ASIC. Similar advantages for FPGAs may be found in ultra-low power applications operating at… (More)
Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are frequently used in low power systems because they can implement the same function as a microprocessor in a more energy-efficient manner while still offering the benefits of low development time and cost relative to an ASIC. The same could be true in ultra-low power applications operating at subthreshold supply… (More)
