The Fin Field-Effect Transistor (FinFET) technology became the most promising approach to enable the downscaling of technological nodes below the 20 nm threshold. However, the introduction of new technology nodes for embedded memories such as SRAMs, especially for even smaller nodes such as 10 and 5 nm, gives rise to new manufacturing failure...

ISO 26262 requires classifying random hardware faults based on their effects (safe, detected, or undetected) within integrated circuits used in automobiles. In general, this classification is addressed using expert judgment and a combination of tools. However, the growth of integrated circuit complexity creates a huge fault space; hence, this...

With the potential of quantum algorithms to solve intractable classical problems, quantum computing is rapidly evolving, and more algorithms are being developed and optimized. Expressing these quantum algorithms using a high-level language and making them executable on a quantum processor while abstracting away hardware details is a...

This article presents a low-jitter and low-spur charge-sampling phase-locked loop (CSPLL). A charge-domain sub-sampling phase detector is introduced to achieve a high phase-detection gain and to reduce the PLL in-band phase noise. Even without employing any power-hungry isolation buffers, the proposed phase detector dramatically suppresses...

Mice and rats can rapidly move their whiskers when exploring the environment. Accurate description of these movements is important for behavioral studies in neuroscience. Whisker tracking is, however, a notoriously difficult task due to the fast movements and frequent crossings and juxtapositionings among whiskers. We have recently developed...

A Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) is an ensemble of collaborating, potentially heterogeneous, medical devices located inside, on the surface of or around the human body with the objective of tackling one or multiple medical conditions of the MBAN host. These devices-which are a special category of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs)–collect,...

State-of-the-art taxonomic profilers that comprise the first step in larger-context metagenomic studies have proven to be computationally intensive, i.e., while accurate, they come at the cost of high latency and energy consumption. Table Lookup operation is a primary bottleneck of today's profilers. In this paper, we first propose TL-PIM, a...

The massive deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) devices makes them vulnerable against physical tampering attacks, such as fault injection. These kind of hardware attacks are very popular as they typically do not require complex equipment or high expertise. Hence, it is important that IoT devices are protected against them. In this work, we...

In the early stages of a novel technology development, it is difficult to provide a comprehensive assessment of its potential capabilities and impact. Nevertheless, some preliminary estimates can be drawn and are certainly of great interest and in this paper we follow this line of reasoning within the framework of the Spin Wave (SW) based...

Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are used to accomplish a variety of tasks, including safety critical ones. Hence, it is important to protect them against faults that can influence decisions during operation. In this paper, we propose smart and low-cost redundancy schemes that protect the most vulnerable ANN parts against fault attacks....

Emerging non-volatile resistive memories like Spin-Transfer Torque Magnetic Random Access Memory (STT-MRAM) and Resistive RAM (RRAM) are in the focus of today’s research. They offer promising alternative computing architectures such as computation-in-memory (CiM) to reduce the transfer overhead between CPU and memory, usually referred to as the...

Design-space exploration for low-power manycore design is a daunting and time-consuming task which requires some complex tools and frameworks to achieve. In the presence of process variation, the problem becomes even more challenging, especially the time associated with trial-and-error selection of the proper options in the tools to obtain the...

Eukaryotic cells have evolved a replication stress response that helps to overcome stalled/collapsed replication forks and ensure proper DNA replication. The replication checkpoint protein Mrc1 plays important roles in these processes, although its functional interactions are not fully understood. Here, we show that MRC1 negatively interacts...

By their very nature, spin waves (SWs) with different frequencies can propagate through the same waveguide, while mostly interfering with their own species. Therefore, more SW encoded data sets can coexist, propagate, and interact in parallel, which opens the road toward hardware replication-free parallel data processing. In this article, we...

The key enabling factor for Spin Wave (SW) technology utilization for building ultra low power circuits is the ability to energy efficiently cascade SW basic computation blocks. SW Majority gates, which constitute a universal gate set for this paradigm, operating on phase encoded data are not input output coherent in terms of SW amplitude....

Industry is prototyping and commercializing Resistive Random Access Memories (RRAMs). Unfortunately, RRAM devices introduce new defects and faults. Hence, high-quality test solutions are urgently needed. Based on silicon measurements, this paper identifies a new RRAM unique fault, the Intermittent Undefined State Fault (IUSF); this fault causes...

Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM)-based systems are widely used in mobile and portable applications where low-cost and high-storage memory capability are required. However, such systems are prone to attacks. A latent threat to DRAM-based system security is the so-called Rowhammer attacks. By repeatedly accessing memory, an attacker is able to...

Emerging memristor-based computing has the potential to achieve higher computational efficiency over conventional architectures. Bit-slicing scheme, which represents a single neural weight using multiple memristive devices, is usually introduced in memristor-based neural networks to meet high bit-precision demands. However, the accuracy of such...
