SCARD - Side Channel Analysis Resistant Design Flow
For the first time in company history, we entered into the role of a coordinator. Our first threshold was to get a bank guarantee of 3 Million Euro. In SCARD, we enhanced the typical micro-chip design flow – from high level system description over register transfer layer description down to gate level net lists, and final placement and routing of the micro chip – in order to provide means for designing side-channel resistant circuits and systems.
Technikon is proud to be an award-winning company
