Tackling Functional Correctness, Safety, Trust And Security
By: Rob van Blommestein
IC integrity verification is a major focus at recent and upcoming industry virtual conferences.
We’re six months into the pandemic, and it looks like in-person conferences are becoming a distant memory and that virtual conferences are now becoming routine. It used to be that traveling to a conference (sometimes long distances) was the only way to be able to attend technical presentations and learn about the latest technologies and methodologies, and that was only if you received permission from your boss to attend. Travel isn’t cheap and taking extended time away from the office meant that you weren’t spending that time on engineering your company’s products. You were also forced to remember the information or download the PDFs of the proceeding that you could reference.
Virtual has changed the game in terms of how we are able to access coveted conference materials. The virtual conferences allow anyone from around the world attend without the expense of travel or the time spent away from critical projects. Furthermore, video recordings of presentations are now standard and are available on-demand even after the virtual event has taken place that you can refer to over and over again.
To that end, OneSpin’s participation at DAC and the upcoming DVCon Europe technical program has given us the unique opportunity to extend our knowledge of IC integrity verification to you in easily digestible formats regardless of your geography. Below are conference materials that you can download that relate to making sure your designs operate as intended and are safe, trusted and secure no matter if you’re working with commercial or open-source cores (such as RISC-V).
