A new generation of sensors
Tiempo Secure, a secure semiconductor design company, has been selected, in a partnership with the CEA, as a winner of the Great Cybersecurity Challenge ("Grand Défi Cyber"), a project launched by the French government in 2020. The announced objective of the Great Cybersecurity Challenge is to make our systems sustainably resilient to cyberattacks. Participating in the Challenge brings a valuable support to Tiempo Secure for the development of the iMRC project, which makes IoT connected objects resistant to known and yet unknown attacks.
Theoretically, in-memory computing should make it possible to reduce circuit power consumption. Researchers recently verified this hypothesis in the lab, using tools they developed for the programming of innovative computing architectures.
The European DigiFed project, coordinated by CEA-Leti under the IRT Nanoelec technology research organization, brings together sixteen European SMBs around cybersecurity for IoT applications. Specifically, the project partners are investigating the use of STMicroelectronics’ STM32MP1 microprocessor to enhance the security of embedded software.
CEA-Leti scientists, working with researchers at Politecnico di Milano, have developed the world's first high-performance gyroscope for operating in severe environments, such as industrial and aeronautic equipment and automobiles. The breakthrough proves it is possible to detect minute rotational movement even among system vibrations.
Integrating energy storage and harvesting into a single system is not all that common. Doing it in a system that measures just a few square centimeters is even rarer
CEA-Leti's IWAT2020 award-winning research into miniaturized, frequency reconfigurable antennas for the IoT has already attracted several manufacturers.
The city of San Francisco is keeping a close eye on air pollution with a little help from a startup from France and its real-time air-quality monitoring solution.
SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 19, 2020 – In scientists’ quest for ambient-energy sources that can power sensor nodes in remote environments or difficult-to-reach settings where batteries are impractical, CEA-Leti takes a wide view. It is investigating harvesting systems ranging from micrometer-and-millimeter scale to centimeter scale or larger.
A cohort of around 10,000 patients on blood thinners will soon have access to an out-of-hospital care pathway for their regular monitoring needs. Avalun is helping create the new pathway with its connected miniaturized lab.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
