Fish Fry 500: The Best of Security (Now on YouTube!)

We are three weeks away from the 500th episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry. This week, we highlight one of the most important topics in all of electronic engineering: security. In this series, I investigate a variety of critical security concerns including the role software fluency plays in automotive security, why software protection is more important than ever before, and the ethical nature of embedded security.  … Read More → "Fish Fry 500: The Best of Security (Now on YouTube!)"

Are You Ready for Ubiquitous Connectivity?

Let’s do a thought experiment. Suppose you find yourself trapped in a small space like an elevator and someone looks you in the eye and poses the question: “Are you ready for ubiquitous connectivity?” How would you respond? “Yes,” “No,” “Maybe,” or “What the heck is ubiquitous connectivity when it’s at home?”

Actually, that’s not a bad … Read More → "Are You Ready for Ubiquitous Connectivity?"

Re-Inventing Home Security: Infineon’s New AI/ML-based Smart Alarm System

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, David Jones (Infineon) and I chat about Infineon’s new battery-powered Smart alarm system. We examine the role that AI and machine learning-based sensor fusion plays in this industry-first acoustic event detection and alarm system, and why this kind of battery-powered home security sensor system could be a … Read More → "Re-Inventing Home Security: Infineon’s New AI/ML-based Smart Alarm System"

Software and Automotive Safety — Siemens  In the realm of automotive designs, safety must reign above all else. But the question remains: how can we innovate within the constraints of today’s safety standards? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rob Bates from Siemens about the role ISO 26262 plays when it comes to COTS and open … Read More → "Software and Automotive Safety — Siemens"
Security Regulations Drive Requirements — Silicon Labs and Mouser Electronics  IoT Security certification schemes can be complex, but security identities and security certification inheritance can make this aspect of your IoT design quite a bit easier. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mike Dow from Silicon Labs about the current state of global security regulations, the difference between physical and … Read More → "Security Regulations Drive Requirements — Silicon Labs and Mouser Electronics"
Medical Device Security – Mentor  In the new era of connected medical devices, securing embedded systems has become more important than ever. But, there is a lot medical device designers can borrow from current best-practices for embedded security in general. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Robert Bates from Mentor about strategies and challenges for … Read More → "Medical Device Security – Mentor"
Keeping Your Linux Device Secure — Siemens   Embedded security is an ongoing process, not a one-time effort. Even after your design is shipped, security vulnerabilities are certain to be discovered – even in things like the operating system. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kathy Tufto from Siemens, about how to make a plan to keep … Read More → "Keeping Your Linux Device Secure — Siemens"
Maxim’s First Secure Micro with ChipDNA PUF Technology — Maxim Integrated and Mouser Electronics   Most applications today demand security, and that starts with your microcontroller. In order to get a truly secure MCU, you need a root of trust such as a physically unclonable function (PUF). In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kris Ardis of Maxim Integrated about how the Maxim MAX32520 MCU … Read More → "Maxim’s First Secure Micro with ChipDNA PUF Technology — Maxim Integrated and Mouser Electronics"
Series 2 Product Security — Silicon Labs and Mouser Electronics  Side channel attacks such as differential power analysis (DPA) present a serious threat to our embedded designs. If we want to defend our systems from DPA and similar attacks, it is critical that we have a secure boot and root of trust.
