Protecting designs with a passive thermal tag

Abstract

The theft of electronic designs and in particular Intellectual Property (IP) Cores is problematic [1]. Proving a design has been stolen is difficult if not impossible. A method is required to quickly and cheaply identify electronic designs and especially IP Core designs embedded within larger chips or programmed into Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA). This paper introduces a novel thermal tag which will fulfill this requirement.
