Infineon Technologies coordinates a group of twelve partners, including researchers, the electronics industry, and end users, who work to find and fix IoT security holes. The research project, entitled “Design methods and hardware / software co-verification for the unique identifiability of electronic components” is part of VE-VIDES, which is part of the Trustworthy Electronics (ZEUS) funding measure . VE-VIDES wishes to develop a holistic security concept for the Internet of Things. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research supports research. The twelve partners are CARIAD SE, Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, Division Engineering of Adaptive Systems EAS, Infineon Technologies AG, IMMS Institut für Mikroelektronik- und Mechatronik-Systeme gemeinnützige (IMMS), OFFIS eV – Institute for Information Technology, OneSpin, a Siemens company, Robert Bosch, Siemens, Synopsys, Chemnitz University of Technology, Ulm University, X-FAB Global Services.

Rambus announced that it now offers an HBM3 compatible memory interface subsystem with an integrated PHY and digital controller. The memory system is intended for AI / ML and HPC applications and achieves HBM3 operation up to 8.4 Gbps.
A British regulator wants to investigate the Nvidia – Arm process more, according to a Reuters story. The regulator, the UK Competition and Market Authority (CMA), said in a press release that “The CMA has determined that a full investigation into the deal between NVIDIA and Arm is warranted on competitive grounds . If the deal goes through, the CMA is concerned that the merged company would have the ability and incentive to hurt the competitiveness of NVIDIA’s competitors by restricting access to Arm’s intellectual property (IP). Arm’s intellectual property is used by companies that produce semiconductor chips and related products, in competition with NVIDIA. Ultimately, AMC fears that this loss of competition will stifle innovation in a number of markets, including data centers, gaming, the “Internet of Things” and self-driving cars. This could translate into more expensive or lower quality products for businesses and consumers. “
