  • Patent number: 8289038
    Abstract: To analyze an electric component in depth, provision is made to submit the aforementioned component to focused laser radiation. It is shown that by modifying the altitude of the focus in the component, some internal parts of the aforementioned component can be characterized more easily.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: April 18, 2007
    Date of Patent: October 16, 2012
    Assignee: European Aeronautic Defence and Space Compai
    Inventors: Florent Miller, Nadine Buard, Imad Lahoud, Thierry Carriere, Patrick Heins
  • Patent number: 8174285
    Abstract: In order to protect an integrated circuit provided with a cryptoprocessor from attacks aiming to reveal secrets, it is anticipated to use a component sensitive to the activation of a parasitic (latchup) thyristor and/or to the activation of a parasitic bipolar transistor, or to design a circuit having this property. If the component is stressed due to the presence of this circuit, it is immediately deactivated, actually preventing the revelation of the secrets thereof.
