WHITEPAPERS

HARDWARE MODULE AUTHENTICATION

The protection of the products or intellectual property from unauthorized production, piracy, copyright violation, or plagiarism, is of utmost importance for OEM equipment manufacturers. We are witnesses of these kinds of problems regularly, where many software and hardware products are being cracked and afterward illegally sold and distributed all over the world. These actions may cause a significant monetary loss for the OEM manufacturer, as they are constantly struggling to protect their product. To make the product more resistant, engineers come up with innovative ideas and solutions that can easily be deployed on the current and future products and are reasonable investments in securing them. The goal is to both prevent the production of replicated products and protect the system from using non-genuine HW.


FAIL-SAFE FIRMWARE UPGRADE

With the proliferation of IoT and Internet access for small embedded devices, it is becoming more common for such systems to be deployed to remote locations. This implies a requirement on the devices to work autonomously without physical access by human personnel. In addition, the devices are mass deployed with centralized management through a Cloud-based service, allowing for an easy and cost-effective solution for long term maintenance. The combination of remote locations and Cloud management mandates the implementation of OTA (Over-the-air) firmware upgrades with fail-safe mechanisms in order to avoid long downtimes, and costly repair operations. Fail-safe mechanisms shall guarantee device accessibility through the Cloud. This mechanism shall work flawlessly even in the cases of failed firmware upgrades by getting back to a known state or allowing remote diagnosis and repair.

INDUSTRIAL SAFETY
SYSTEMS

Safety systems in industrial machinery have improved over the past years, but accidents still occur with unacceptable frequency. In most parts of the world, there are safety directives that define the common minimum requirements for health and safety of work equipment and machinery. All new work equipment, before is deployed and brought into use, must comply in terms of design and construction with these directives. The objective of this paper is to examine the use of a system based on the NXP LS1021A into industrial safety systems that not only address safety and security but also increases the whole system productivity. As well as the theoretical approach, this paper describes the application of the proposed system in the emulated environment of a model overhead crane.
