Y-FLEX High-Speed FPC: The Future of Fast Data Transmission

Conventional technologies such as Flexible Flat Cables and Flexible Printed Circuits (FFC/FPC) or micro-coaxial cables cannot cope with requirements for extremely high reliability and continuously increasing data transmission rates between internal printed circuit boards. The Y-FLEX technology of Yamaichi Electronics solves this problem. With the Y-FLEX high-speed FPC you can establish data rates of 56 Gbps (PAM4) over a cable length of 100 mm.

Protect against exploits on 11th Gen Intel Core Processors

Firmware is the new frontier for platform security. It is safe to say that if your firmware is compromised, then your platform is compromised. The firmware sets up and maintains the platform’s hardware security capabilities and hands off control to the operating system securely. The firmware is integral to the platform and some or all of it is stored in non-volatile storage (like flash) directly attached to the platform. This makes it difficult to find malware embedded in firmware, difficult to mitigate its effects, because most firmware is essential to the boot process, and difficult to remediate.

Achieving Higher Product Quality and Faster Time-to-Market Through Early-Stage Model-Based Fault-Injection Testing

In this paper, we show how and why very early fault-injection tests greatly improve the speed and quality of the development process of safety-critical embedded systems. After a brief introduction to fault-injection testing for safety-critical systems using standards from the automotive domain as a guideline, the benefits of early-stage tests are highlighted. The third section focusses on fault-injection testing on the model level, with the fourth section giving a use-case example for model-based fault-injection testing using Mindmotiv’s Arttest as the testing environment.

The Nuts & Bolts of Secure Erase

When we remove critical data from our embedded devices using standard means, the data doesn’t fully disappear. Specific actions need to be taken to ensure sensitive data is not just hanging around on the device, waiting to be plundered. One of the best ways to protect that data is by properly erasing it when it is no longer needed.
