    In this letter, processor speedup analysis is used to strengthen recent results regarding the suboptimality of uniprocessor nonpreemptive earliest deadline first (npEDF) scheduling. The suboptimality of npEDF is defined as the minimum amount of increase in the processor speed that is needed to guarantee the npEDF schedulability of any feasible task set. We show that any preemptively schedulable ta... View full abstract»

    In this letter, a time-delayed converter-reshuffling (CoRe) technique is proposed as a countermeasure against machine learning based differential power analysis (DPA) attacks where the attacker can synchronize the sampling frequency with the operating frequency of the device under attack. The proposed time-delayed CoRe technique exploits the distributed nature of multiphase switched capacitor volt... View full abstract»

    The integration of fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) into embedded systems is limited due to its huge computational requirements. FHE requires multiplications of operands up to millions of bits. Current implementations use high-end and parallel processors, leading to high-power consumption. We propose a hardware-software system to benefit from the best of hardware (performance/low-power) and soft... View full abstract»

    This letter presents a transducer network framework that supports the amalgamation of multiple transducers into single wireless nodes. This approach is aimed at decreasing energy consumption by reducing the number of wireless transceivers involved in such networks. To make wireless nodes easily reconfigurable, a plug and play mechanism is applied to enable the clustering of any number of transduce... View full abstract»

    Stepper motors are electric motors that are used extensively in safety-critical applications such as auto, medical devices, and surgical robots. A popular trend is the use of FPGA-based digital control for stepper motors. We present a formal verification methodology for 6 types of stepper motor (SM) control. Our methodology is based on the theory of Well-Founded Equivalence Bisimulation refinement... View full abstract»

    In G. C. Buttazzo, Real-Time Syst., vol. 29, no. 1, pp. 5-26, 2005, the author empirically compared earliest deadline first (EDF) and rate monotonic (RM) scheduling algorithms and made a few EDF preemption behavior observations based on data obtained from the first 1000 time units of scheduling activities. However, based on test settings given in (G. C. Buttazzo, Real-Time Syst., vol. 29, no. 1, p... View full abstract»
