FinFET-Based Power Management for Improved DPA Resistance with Low Overhead
Meng Zhang, Niraj K. Jha
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/2000502.2000503

Differential power analysis (DPA) is a side-channel attack that statistically analyzes the power consumption of a cryptographic system to obtain secret information. This type of attack is well known as a major threat to information security....

On the Effect of Quantum Interaction Distance on Quantum Addition Circuits
Byung-Soo Choi, Rodney Van Meter
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/2000502.2000504

We investigate the theoretical limits of the effect of the quantum interaction distance on the speed of exact quantum addition circuits. For this study, we exploit graph embedding for quantum circuit analysis. We study a logical mapping of qubits...

Defect-Aware Nanocrossbar Logic Mapping through Matrix Canonization Using Two-Dimensional Radix Sort
Sezer Gören, H. Fatih Ugurdag, Okan Palaz
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/2000502.2000505

Nanocrossbars (i.e., nanowire crossbars) offer extreme logic densities but come with very high defect rates; stuck-open/closed, broken nanowires. Achieving reasonable yield and utilization requires logic mapping that is defect-aware even at the...

p-QCA: A Tiled Programmable Fabric Architecture Using Molecular Quantum-Dot Cellular Automata
Rajeswari Devadoss, Kolin Paul, M. Balakrishnan
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/2000502.2000506

Quantum-dot cellular automata is an interesting computation fabric with many never-seen-before properties. However, no programmable fabric scheme has utilized all these properties effectively. We propose an architecture for a programmable device...
