Project Summary: 

Due to tight on-die integration in low-cost, low-power wireless modules, digital and mixed-signal subsystems are often placed very close to each other. Noise coupling from the digital system is often indicative of the computations being performed and thus leaks information to the outside world. We would like to characterize this leakage and see what all can be inferred from power analysis and wireless signal analysis.

Student's Role:

The student will be conducting in-lab experiments with development boards containing blue-tooth, and other wireless modules. The student will be working with software-defined radio kits in order to see what all information can be gathered from wireless leakage through electromagnetic and wireless methods.
