Project VE-VIDES

Against hacker attacks: Innovative chip architectures, modelling and verification methods for trustworthy electronics

Hackers are already targeting networked vehicles, machines, industrial and telecommunications systems to gain illegal advantages, such as harming competitors, stealing intellectual property or leaking sensitive data.

At the same time, there is a growing need to make automotive systems, corporate and production networks more functional, convenient, traffic-safe and energy- and cost-efficient. These requirements alone are not only making the systems more and more complex and demanding in their development. They are also becoming increasingly networked. More complexity and more networking also offer more opportunities for attacks on these systems, which can also have a greater impact and are therefore also more lucrative for offenders.

In the project, IMMS and its partners are securing the design of integrated systems through innovative chip architectures and automated modelling and verification methods. This should enable the trustworthiness of the system to be continuously checked not only during the design, but also during operation, and thus a hacker attack to be blocked.

Eric Schäfer and his team research Integrated sensor systems, especially CMOS-based biosensors, ULP sensor systems and AI-based design and test automation. The results are being incorporated into research on the lead applications Sensor systems for in-vitro diagnostics and RFID sensor technology. It will assist you with services for the development of Integrated circuits and with IC design methods.


Funding

The joint project VE-VIDES is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research under the reference 16ME0246.

Core topic

AI-based design and test automation

We are researching to use AI to make the development process of integrated sensor systems safer and more cost-effective. AI can help developers in the process to avoid errors and apply informal knowledge in an automated way.

Service for R&D

IC design methods

We develop new AI-based methods and tools for your system-on-chip and FPGA designs to master the increasing complexity of integrated systems and thus further increase performance.

Service for R&D

Integrated Circuits

We offer the design and realisation of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) in CMOS, BiCMOS and SOI technologies. We achieve well-performing ASICs with our first runs (first-time right silicon).

Research field

Integrated sensor systems

Here we investigate miniaturised systems manufactured in semiconductor technology consisting of microelectronic components for sensors applications, as well as methods to design these highly complex systems efficiently and safely.
