  • This paper reports on a superconductive tapped delay line, circuits comprising SIS mixers, an L-C integrator and a tunnel junction comparator, and superconductive digital address encoders integrated into a 14-channel analog signal correlator. This 25 {times} 38 mm circuit was fabricated using a Nb/Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}/Pb tunnel junction process. Preliminary testing of this device indicates the ability to process long duration, wideband waveforms with time-bandwidth products equal to 6000.
  • Modern vehicles rely on hundreds of on-board electronic control units (ECUs) communicating over in-vehicle networks. As external interfaces to the car control networks (such as the on-board diagnostic (OBD) port, auxiliary media ports, etc.) become common, and vehicle-to-vehicle / vehicle-to-infrastructure technology is in the near future, the attack surface for vehicles grows, exposing control networks to potentially life-critical attacks. This paper addresses the need for securing the CAN bus by detecting anomalous traffic patterns via unusual refresh rates of certain commands. While previous works have identified signal frequency as an important feature for CAN bus intrusion detection, this paper providesmore » the first such algorithm with experiments on five attack scenarios. Our data-driven anomaly detection algorithm requires only five seconds of training time (on normal data) and achieves true positive / false discovery rates of 0.9998/0.00298, respectively (micro-averaged across the five experimental tests).« less
  • Analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits are also susceptible to single-event effects, but they have rarely been tested. Analog circuit single-particle transients require modified test techniques and data analysis. Existing work is reviewed and future concerns are outlined.
  • Detectors for high energy physics experiments have become extremely large in recent years and their size is still growing. This imposes new problems on readout electronics. A Mach-Zehnder type optomodulator has been investigated for the last quarter of a century, but its application for analog signal transmission in a physics experiment is a quite new idea. Recent studies have proven that Mach-Zehnder type optomodulators have a good potential in such applications. It will enable more than an order of magnitude reduction of cable volume and will be free from noise pickup and cross talk. Almost no attenuation through a longmore » signal path in light fibers is also an asset when a detector size is very large. Power consumption is also minimal. If it does not have too large a temperature coefficient, it could be an excellent device for future experiments. The authors have studied its temperature coefficient and developed a unit that has low enough temperature coefficient so that it could be used for some physics experiments. A light wavelength of 1.55 micron was chosen for the unit.« less
  • The authors have demonstrated the feasibility of integrating thick-film dielectrics with thin-film superconductors in the fabrication of signal processing devices. Thin films of Nb and NbN are deposited by rf sputtering and patterned photolithographically. Thick film dielectrics can be spun-on to a controlled thickness of 10 to 25 microns, which is an optimum range for high-density, low-loss microwave delay lines. After an organic-binder burnout step at 450/sup 0/C in air, the ceramic dielectrics are sintered onto the NbN thin films at 850/sup 0/C in vacuum. The transition temperature of the NbN changes from 15 K as sputtered to 9 Kmore » after sintering, but superconductivity is preserved by the presence of thin-film MgO and SiO/sub 2/ barrier layers. Lumped-element resonators, in which the inductor and the capacitor electrodes are made of NbN and the dielectric of thick film ceramic, have been successfully fabricated for measuring the dielectric properties of the ceramics at 4.2 K and 10 MHz. Preliminary results indicate a dielectric constant of 6-8 and tan delta of 10/sup -2/.« less
