In addition, as devices age and systems remain in use, it’s critical to understand bitstream-level functions when designs are transferred from old FPGAs to newer devices.“In many instances, the design on an old FPGA has proven reliable and effective and our technology allows the customer to use the old design on a newer device,” Graf explains. “Often the term ‘reverse engineering’ is seen in a negative light. In our case, the technology is doing good.” “Luna’s capabilities allow FPGA designs to be evaluated with a significantly higher degree of confidence than previously available,” said My Chung, CEO of Luna Innovations. “This is a valuable benefit for our customers and illustrates one of our key corporate growth strategies – to be the leading choice for integrated circuits security for weapons systems.” Over the past seven years Luna has won more than $20 million in contracts related to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s TRUST in Integrated Circuits program, which ensures the trust of integrated circuits used in military systems that are designed and fabricated under untrustworthy conditions.
