ECE PhD student Ulbert (Joey) Botero was recently awarded 2020 Outstanding Paper at the Electronic Device Failure Analysis Society (EDFAS) Virtual Workshop, held December 7–9 of last year for his paper, “Automated Via Detection for PCB Reverse Engineering.”
An article recently published in the Academic Times profiled exciting new technology patented by researchers at the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity (FICS) Research which promises a new way to detect recycled and counterfeit electronic parts. The technology created by ECE Associate Professor Domenic Forte and ECE Associate Professor Nima Maghari makes supply chains more secure, protects consumer safety and runs at almost zero cost.
It was revealed this week that widely-deployed servers manufactured by SuperMicro had been found to contain motherboards which had been modified at the factory.
Hardware security made news in the worst way possible last month with the announcement that two CPU bugs, nicknamed Spectre and Meltdown, leave virtually every modern computer, smartphone, tablet and PC vulnerable to malicious attack. FICS members are actively working on initiatives related to Spectre and Meltown, showing their global expertise in the field.
