S. R. Priya, Swetha, P., Srigayathri, D., Sumedha, N., and Priyatharishini M., “Hardware Malicious Circuit Identification using Self Referencing Approach”, in 2017 International conference on Microelectronic Devices, Circuits and Systems (ICMDCS), 2017.[Abstract]


Robust Trojans are inserted in outsourced products resulting in security vulnerabilities. Post-silicon testing is done mandatorily to detect such malicious inclusions. Logic testing becomes obsolete for larger circuits with sequential Trojans. For such cases, side channel analysis is an effective approach. The major challenge with the side channel analysis is reduction in hardware Trojan detection sensitivity due to process variation (process variation could lead to false positives and false negatives and it is unavoidable during a manufacturing stage). In this paper Self Referencing method is proposed that measures leakage power of the circuit at four different time windows that hammers the Trojan into triggering and also help to identify/eliminate false positives/false negatives due to process variation.

D. Siva, Sangavi, T., Mohan, S., Sowndhariya, A., Desikan, S., and Priyatharishini M., “Tongue Controlled Mouse Pointer: An Assistive Technology for the Disabled”, International Journal of Applied Engineering Research, vol. 10, pp. 23945-23952, 2015.[Abstract]


This paper aims at developing an unobtrusive and minimally invasive assistive technology for people with severe disabilities.Tongue controlled technology detects the user’s voluntary tongue movement and translates it into user defined commands. Since the tongue is connected to the hypoglossal cranial nerve, it escapes damage in most spinal cord injuries. Hence it can be used to drive the assistive technology. This technology uses Hall Effect sensors fixed on a head mounted device for detecting the proximity of a permanent magnet which is placed on the tongue. When the sensor senses the magnetic field generated by the magnet, it sends an output signal to the microcontroller which acts as an interface between the sensors and the PC. A Visual Basic code receives data from the microcontroller and moves the mouse pointer accordingly on the screen. © Research India Publications.
