DARPA SHIELD Improves Traceability and Deters Counterfeiting
The integrity of both U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and commercial electronic systems is challenged by the presence of counterfeit integrated circuits (ICs) in the supply chain. DARPA created the Supply Chain Hardware Integrity for Electronics Defense (SHIELD) program to develop hardware and software that enhances supply chain traceability and discourages electronics counterfeiting. Learn what new technologies are being introduced in this program. Audience participation in a discussion of commercialization prospects is welcome.
