Luna Innovations Accredited As Trusted Integrated Circuit Supplier

Luna Innovations Incorporated (NASDAQ: LUNA) today announced that the company has been fully accredited as a Trusted Integrated Circuit Supplier through its Secure Computing and Communications (SCC) group.

As a trusted supplier, accredited by the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA), an organization within the U.S. Department of Defense, Luna is certified as a trustworthy design service provider at a time when the global integrated circuit supply chain is dominated by foreign sources and as demand grows for high-performance, application-specific integrated circuits used by military and national security agencies.

The accreditation program is part of Department of Defense’s strategy to ensure that electronic components used in U.S. military and national security applications keep defense microelectronic systems trusted, safe and mission ready. The service that Luna provides is related to unique trust technologies developed by SCC to verify FPGA (field programmable gate array) designs and devices.

“The Department of Defense has determined that Luna can be trusted to perform integrated circuit design services that help ensure critical government systems maintain the highest level of assurance and integrity,” said Barry Polakowski, vice president of SCC. “This accreditation demonstrates that SCC is committed to preventing problems involving the globalization of the microelectronic integrated circuit supply chain.”

Luna was accredited to Trusted Category 1A, which meets Mission Assurance Category 1, a level that requires the most stringent protection measures.

“This prestigious accreditation is an important step in our ongoing efforts to be the leading choice for ensuring the integrity of integrated circuits used in defense systems,” said Luna CEO My Chung.

The company has developed technology that uses reverse engineering of FPGA bitstream files to ensure design trust, enable high-reliability verification, and migrate designs from obsolete parts to new integrated circuits. Luna is currently offering Trust Services to Department of Defense organizations and contractors who wish to validate trust in their digital designs or to recover designs from obsolete parts to retarget them to modern microelectronic devices.
