Susan Fullerton, Ke Xu, and their colleague, Eric Beckman, recently received a $553,482 NSF grant for their project titled “Ion-Locked Polymorphic Electronics for Hardware Security.”
Hardware and intellectual property piracy costs the U.S. billions of dollars every year. One promising solution to this issue is polymorphic electronics, or circuits that can be reprogrammed on-the-fly, thereby obscuring their true functionality until they are ready to be used. However, current approaches involve . . .
