About this book

This book provides readers with insight into an alternative approach for enhancing the reliability, security, and low power features of integrated circuit designs, related to transient faults, hardware Trojans, and power consumption.  The authors explain how the addition of integrated sensors enables the detection of ionizing particles and how this information can be processed at a high layer. The discussion also includes a variety of applications, such as the detection of hardware Trojans and fault attacks, and how sensors can operate to provide different body bias levels and reduce power costs. Readers can benefit from these sensors-based approaches through designs with fast response time, non-intrusive integration on gate-level and reasonable design costs. 

About the authors

Rodrigo Possamai Bastos holds an engineer's degree (Electrical Engineering in 2002) and M.S. degree (Computer Science in 2006), both from Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre (Brazil). He worked as a R&D engineer at DataCom Telemática in Brazil (2002 to 2004), and he completed his double Ph.D. in Nano and Microelectronics in July 2010 at UFRGS, Grenoble Institute of Technology, and TIMA Laboratory (France). From September 2010 until August 2012, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at LIRMM (France). Since September 2012, Rodrigo is an Associate Professor at Univ. Grenoble Alpes and TIMA Laboratory. In January 2018 he has obtained the French habilitation for leading research (HDR thesis).

His research interests include integrated circuit aspects related to reliability, security, and test. Rodrigo is author/co-author over 50 papers in international scientific conferences and journals, and he is a program committee member of the international IEEE conferences SBCCI, LATS, LASCAS, and ICCDCS. Rodrigo is recurrent reviewer of Elsevier Microelectronics Reliability Journal, Elsevier Microprocessors and Microsystems Journal, and IEEE Transactions on Device and Materials Reliability.

Frank Sill Torres received the Diploma and Dr.-Ing. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rostock, Germany, in 2002 and 2007, respectively. He was with the Laboratory for Optronics and Microtechnologies, Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), Brazil, from 2007 to 2008, which was followed by a year in the industry. From 2010 to 2018, he was as Professor with the Department of Electronic Engineering at the UFMG where he coordinated the ASIC Reliability Group. Since 2012, he is a permanent member of the Post-graduation program in Electrical Engineering of the UFMG. In 2017, he was with the Group for Computer Architecture, Institute of Computer Science, University of Bremen, Germany. In 2018, he joined the Cyber-Physical Systems group of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Bremen as Senior Researcher.

His research interests include Design for Reliability, Emerging Technologies and Low-Power Integrated Circuit Design, and he is author of more than 90 publications in scientific journals, congresses and workshops. Frank Sill Torres was a member of several conference committees including ISCAS, SBCCI, LATS, MWSCAS, and the program chair of the SBCCI 2016. He is an Associate Researcher of the Brazilian National Research Council (CNPq).
