Not too long ago, the IoT Security Summit happened – a day spent with all things security as they relate to the IoT. So today we’re going to go over a few interesting points that were made in the course of the event, while acknowledging that much more happened than what we’ll cover.
With all the hoopla over the IoT – and the attendant concerns about security, … Read More → "Trust and the IoT"
Some memory technologies are straightforward. Like SRAM. You want to write a byte? You write a byte. You want to read a byte? You read a byte. Other than that, you have an on/off switch, and that’s pretty much it. OK, it’s expensive and uses power and – oh yeah – it’s volatile. But still – it’s so much simpler than the “cheaper” memories.

“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.” – John F. Kennedy
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we reach down deep into your embedded system code to find exactly where your security measures have fallen short. Andrew Girson (The Barr Group) joins us to discuss the ethical nature of embedded security, … Read More → "Security in Action"
Warning: This week’s Fish Fry may keep you up at night. We survey some of the scary security challenges facing us in the coming age of quantum computing. SecureRF CEO and President Louis Parks joins us to discuss a wide range of IoT security-related issues including endpoint authentication and identification, quantum resistance, and data accumulation. Also this week, we take a … Read More → "Quantum’s Leap"
We all know that cybersecurity, software piracy, and IP theft are becoming bigger and bigger problems in today’s semiconductor industry. But what can we do about it? Dragging our heels and pretending that it’s not a problem isn’t really working out so well, and those cyber thieves are only getting more sophisticated. In this week’s Fish Fry, we welcome Ted Miracco (CEO … Read More → "IP Thieves at the Gate"
Porsche is a driver’s car – a performance car… but it’s got no cup holders.” – Jason McCoy
You want the 140-character version? MIPS has a new processor with parity.
You want the longer, more detailed version? Uh… MIPS has a new processor with parity… and some ECC. And some additional technical documentation to help with safety certification. But the CPU itself? Pretty … Read More → "MIPS Spins Its Wheels"
