Qualcomm Joins Semiconductor Research Corporation’s Trustworthy and Secure Semiconductors and Systems Initiative

SRC Initiative Part of Joint Program with National Science Foundation Focused on Secure, Trustworthy, Assured and Resilient Semiconductors and Systems

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 11, 2014 — Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), the world's leading university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies, today announced that Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, has joined SRC’s Trustworthy and Secure Semiconductors and Systems (T3S) program.

T3S is a new SRC-targeted research effort aimed at developing cost-effective strategies and tools to design and manufacture chips and systems that are reliable, trustworthy, secure and resistant to attack, tampering or counterfeiting. With the increasing reliance on connected mobile and embedded devices, and the lengthy and global supply chain, the ability to provide assurance that hardware systems do what they are intended to and nothing else is more important than ever.

Qualcomm Technologies joins other T3S industry participants, including Freescale, Intel Corporation, Mentor Graphics and Texas Instruments. T3S is a targeted and affordable option that is open to companies that are not already members of SRC.

“As a leader in mobile technologies and security, Qualcomm Technologies is always looking at new ways to collaborate with the industry and academia to build more secure products and is pleased to be joining SRC’s T3S initiative,” said Karim Arabi, Vice President of Engineering, Qualcomm Technologies.

T3S is collaborating with the National Science Foundation (NSF) to jointly fund university research on Secure, Trustworthy, Assured and Resilient Semiconductors and Systems (STARSS).

This collaboration substantially increases the impact of the T3S investment and enhances the value of the federal program by utilizing funding and connecting industry and academia. STARSS recently announced a first set of projects at 10 universities totaling nearly $4 million and is soliciting a second round of proposals to be funded in 2015.

“The objective of T3S is to develop techniques and tools that provide assurance from end-to-end of the semiconductor design and manufacture process,” said SRC President and CEO Larry Sumney. “We are pleased to have Qualcomm Technologies, with its significant mobile and wireless expertise, participating in the program.”
