New NIST Standard Tackles Latest Attack Vector for Servers

Posted 11/07/2018 by Shyam Chandra

There is an emerging, though not widely known attack vector for hacking a server: firmware. Last month, researchers at ESET published a report on Lojax, a rootkit (firmware hacking tool) believed to have been developed by Sednit, the notorious cyberespionage group linked to Russian military intelligence.

Form Follows Function – Selecting the Best Lattice FPGA

Posted 04/03/2018 by Gordon Hands

You may be asking yourself, “What does a nineteenth century architect have to do with FPGAs?” A key decision facing many system architects is which FPGA families to use in their next project. Lattice currently offers four classes of FPGAs: iCE, ECP, Mach and CrossLink. It is often tempting to think of FPGAs as just a blank canvas, ready to be filled with digital logic.

Solving the Challenges around In-Field Upgrades

Posted 03/01/2018 by Joel Coplen

A key benefit of programmable logic devices, such as FPGAs and CPLDs, is their programmability. These devices are typically deployed with a unique design intended to address application-specific problems. And because of these problems, many embedded systems that deploy programmable products benefit greatly from the ability to update their design and configuration after manufacturing. An upgrade feature is useful for multiple end-applications.
