Magnetoelastic sensor operating under low magnetic field and high mechanical stress
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0833
The goal of the thesis is to investigate the magnetoelastic effects (variations of the magnetization inside a ferromagnetic body Under mechanical stress), and the developpement of a mechanical stress sensor based on these effects.
Architecture and design of high efficiency wideband power amplifiers in SOI CMOS technology
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0825
The trend towards higher data rates leads to the need of wideband RF power amplifiers (PAs). One main challenge is to achieve high PA efficiency over broad bandwidth while maintaining adequate linearity. The objective of the proposed thesis is to study new linear PA architectures with wideband and high efficiency characteristics and then to investigate opportunities to integrate such PAs in SOI CMOS technology.
Compilation for the application of countermeasures against physical attacks, and for the verification of functional and security properties
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0802
This thesis focuses on the cybersecurity of embedded devices, more specifically their vulnerability to the so-called "physical attacks". Physical attacks encompass passive attacks, called side channel attacks, and active attacks, called fault attacks. There exists a large number of countermeasures against physical attacks, and a real product usually embeds many of them. Countermeasures intervene usually both at the hardware and at the software levels.
Diagnosis and prognosis of faults in complex wired networks based on Bayesian networks.
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0795
Despite the maturity of most methods of reflectometry to detect and locate a fault in a system (cable or wired network), it does not allow neither to determine the causes of the occurrence of the fault nor to anticipate the occurrence of that fault.
