Semiconductor Engineering Article: Safety, Security and PPA Tradeoffs

By July 24, 2018May 12th, 2021No Comments

Safety and security are emerging as key design tradeoffs as chips are added into safety-critical markets, adding even more complexity into an already complicated optimization process…
The chances of that happening are slim, however. David Patterson, Emeritus Professor for UC Berkeley and vice-chair of the RISC-V board of directors, talked about “the sorry state of security” in his keynote to the Design Automation Conference. “For those in the field, this is embarrassing. In the early days, we used to have lots of stuff for security, but they weren’t used by operating systems and they were expensive, so they disappeared.”
