Samuel Pagliarini’s open lecture: Can we build Trustworthy Billion Transistor Chips?
Place: Akadeemia tee 15a, ruum ICT-507AB
Time: 30. november, 10:00-11:30 a.m
In this talk, Samuel Pagliarini will share his experience related to designing (and securing) hardware in advanced technology nodes. Samuel has been part of three major research efforts sponsored by the US Department of Defense that relate to Split Fabrication, dual-chip systems, and anti-reverse engineering techniques. He recently designed an SoC with 1B transistors in 16nm FinFET CMOS, a record for any chip ever designed at Carnegie Mellon. He will discuss some of the 10+ hardware security techniques that were utilized in the SoC and the implications for its security.
Samuel Pagliarini is currently a Senior Research Scientist at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh - PA. Samuel has a background in IC design, having taped out himself or supervised dozens of ICs. He got his PhD degree from Telecom ParisTech, Paris, France. His PhD research focused on circuit reliability and radiation hardening. More recently, he shifted his research to hardware security, where he has concentrated on issues such as IP theft, circuit obfuscation, and prevention of hardware trojans.
