NewAE Technology Inc. will be returning to Black Hat USA 2017 to put on it’s 2-day intensive training on side-channel power analysis and glitching. This training is hands-on, and uses the ChipWhisperer-Lite platform to give students the chance to perform real side-channel power analysis and glitching attacks.
The course uses the open-source ChipWhisperer project (www.chipwhisperer.com) for both hardware & software tools, meaning attendees can immediately take the knowledge learned in this course and apply it in real life. The course includes a ChipWhisperer-Lite, so students walk away with the hands-on hardware used during the lab.

The CW305 is NewAE Technology’s first FPGA target board. It brings tons of features including a simplified USB interface for talking to the FPGA, an external PLL for adjusting frequency response, a programmable VCC-INT supply, and diode protection for use in fault injection environments. Also available with a special BGA socket, giving you the ability to perform tests on multiple FPGA devices – perfect for checking Physically Unclonable Functions (PUFs) under the exact same environmental conditions across multiple FPGAs.
This board requires an external oscilloscope or capture box for performing the power measurement. If you are looking for a complete toolchain, purchase the CW305 along with the ChipWhisperer 2-Part version. This will provide you with a complete toolchain for experimentation on FPGA targets. Check out some of the features below, and you can see full pricing in our webstore. The board is now available for preorder, and is expected to start shipping by March 31, 2016.
NewAE Technology Inc. is currently looking to expand it’s team, and is posting two positions for a hardware and software engineer. Details of these can be seen at http://www.newae.com/jobs .
Positions are approximately 3-months in length, but may expand to include full-time employment depending on candidate’s interest and upcoming projects. NewAE Technology has offices located in Purdy’s Tower, with additional office spaces near Quinpool Road (for inventory storage and light production work). Hours of work and working location are flexible (including working remotely), and both full and part-time employment is possible.
