Booz Allen Hamilton Distinguished Colloquium in Electrical and Computer Engineering
"Why Do You Need to Account for 'TRUST' in Modern Hardware Design?"
Mr. Saverio Fazzari
Senior Technical Advisor to Government Agencies
Booz Allen Hamilton
The incorporation of electronics into modern devices is happening at a frantic pace. Products are faster, more capable, and smaller than ever before. These benefits are not without risks; the process for the development of modern electronics hardware is very expensive, and the number of failures experienced in today’s systems is growing. Designers are expected not only to validate that the electronics they build will perform as expected in the lab, but also to ensure that they will function properly with other elements of an integrated system. Today’s electronic systems can include hardware developed using a wide variety of technologies, with origins both known and unknown. In order to provide the designers with some degree of confidence that their solutions will operate as intended (in their solutions), “TRUST” is needed in the design flow process. This talk will discuss the technical aspects associated with TRUST in electronic design and the impact of the evolving hardware solution.
Saverio Fazzari works for Booz Allen acting as a senior technical advisor to DARPA and other government agencies for numerous programs. Mr. Fazzari has a strong background in all areas of semiconductor design and fabrication, from algorithm development through device implementation. His specialty is advanced circuit design and development strategies with a focus on hardware cyber security issues including trusted design and fabrication. Mr. Fazzari' s experience includes extensive commercial experience, leading production innovation and development across all facets of the electronic design process. Mr. Saverio Fazzari has over 20 years of experience covering the entire electronic product development flow.He has a BSEE from Johns Hopkins, and MSEE from the University of Pittsburgh.He has published over 14 papers in industry journals and technical conferences.
