In my last blog “Processor for IoT” I have discussed security as one of the key requirements for processor used in IoT devices. In this blog we will analyze different method of hacking and some techniques which can be used to prevent those security breaches.
One of the common ways of attack is to probe address and data … Read More
Due to increasing proliferation of sensors in our everyday lives, evolution of IoT is natural. The mix of different building blocks with different speed-power-performance constraints makes IoT as the hottest upcoming application area for semiconductor IP vendors. The System-on-Chips (SoCs) coming up in this area typically… Read More
How to handle a new entrant with superior product quality is a point of worried to all EDA companies. Due to continuous research happenings and relatively lower investment requirement new and new EDA start-ups are coming in EDA domains regularly. In several situations, these start-ups offer product of superior quality in terms… Read More
Royalty is a critical component in any IP deal. SoC companies want IP companies to share the risk of success (or failure) of their SoC and to enable that they want IP vendors to accept a substantial part of their payment to be paid as royalty. But the customers are also not very interested to shell out huge money to IP companies if the SoC… Read More
