A New Chip For Quantum Computing

The race for quantum technology is increasingly intriguing. Google and IBM are beginning to develop quantum computers that would revolutionize computing at speeds now inconceivable. A much-awaited strength of quantum technology lies in cryptography. With the proliferation of IoT and the next 5G, it is extremely important to create secure channels. In contrast, quantum channels…

USB Type-C Power Management for Portable Devices

Energy consumption is one of the biggest challenges for the mobile technology sector. USB-C was supposed to be primarily a connectivity option, but it is increasingly finding favor because it is also a useful means of managing power in portable devices.  In this ever-evolving mobile ecosystem, devices become more and more intelligent and powerful, which…

A New Way for Photonic Chips

The speed of multicore microprocessors, already used by high-performance computers, does not depend so much on the speed of a single core, but on time required for data transfer between the various cores. The copper interconnections used in today’s microprocessors cannot maintain the progress of the communication’s performance. Leading companies in the semiconductor industry such…

New Bus Monitoring IP Detects and Responds to Cybersecurity Threats

UK-based embedded monitoring and analytics company UltraSoC used the Arm TechCon 2019 conference in San Jose, California this week to announce the first of a new family of hardware-based intellectual property (IP) products that detect and respond to cybersecurity threats. Its new Bus Sentinel module enables system-on-chip (SoC) designers to control access to sensitive areas…

Sectigo’s Grau on Embedded Security Priorities, Strategies

Many of the sensors and low-level controls used in internet of things (IoT) infrastructure are embedded devices: Think motion sensors, environmental monitoring, and device control in various industrial ecosystems, including automotive. Much of the increase in IoT communications comes from computing devices and embedded sensor systems used in machine-to-machine communication, automation, and portable devices. Understanding…
