Technology Conference on Solid State Devices and Antivirus Properties

The regular ESSCIRC and ESSDERC conferences will take place later this year-mid-September, to be precise. It is however incredible that most people do not understand what these conferences are really about, even as we head into the 41st of them, which is scheduled to be held in the Australian city of Graz.

ESSCIRC and ESSDERC are forums created for the sole purpose of monitoring and understanding the concept of solid state circuits and devices. These meetings pull in professionals from technology and computer science fields, seeking for reports on what has been achieved and initiating a push for more aggression in the field. While the two forums deal with slightly different concepts, their seminars are actually held in parallel basis, as happened in Bucharest, Romania in 2013.The same is expected to happen in this year’s event.

solid state devicesSolid state devices confine their capabilities within a solid material, as opposed to traditional concepts that had a heavy lean on gas-discharge and vacuum tubes. If for example, a solid storage medium is built into a system, it becomes very easy for the users of that particular machine to retrieve data, an ease that is seen as instrumental in the proliferation of modern technologies.

Over the last ten years, there has been a heightened push to increase the production of sophisticated integrated chips. While the technologies they use are amazing, what is more fascinating is their ability to manage data and processes in ways that were difficult to conjure in the past. Experts argue that most of these chips, a majority of which use silicon technology, are a secure form of storage and circuit management. It is easy to understand this obsession with security. Since the turn of the century, digital media has been faced with the challenge of hacks, attacks and even malicious hits by programs out of the scope of current technologies. There has always been a need for digital and integrated inventions that help us stay wary of these issues and work towards minimizing the eventuality of them happening.

At the core of the push for secure solid-state devices is the need for powerful anti-virus software. ESSDERC and ESSCIRC see these bits of software as key in the development of chips and semi-conductors. It is not difficult to make a connection with this line of thought because of what science already knows as tried and tested. For example, today there are portable anti-virus outlets that offer solid-state capabilities for the detection and disinfection of viruses from within a computer. These anti-virus programs can actually be used over a network, after which there are opportunities for re-use, upgrading and evaluation.

The discussions in this year’s conference are expected to have a heavy lean towards the continuation of solid state progress and security policies raised in Bucharest, Romania, 2 years ago. While solid state devices are horribly complex to get hit by a virus, there is still a need for caution, which is why various anti-virus software with cross-platform applicability is being sought after. Some other key issues to be discussed in Australia include analogue circuits, data converters, frequency generation, power management/energy scavenging as well as a raft of others.

Solid state devices and their role in antivirus protection

Solid state devices and their role in antivirus protection

Solid state devices have no moving parts, and are considerably different from old gas-based systems. In modern computing, SSD’s have come to the fore because of their strong abilities when it comes to increasing the speed of operations in a computer system. In a solid state scenario, the electric current moving through a device stays confined to the solid elements of that device. The engineering behind this setup is meant to amplify the functions of a particular unit, whether it is a RAM unit, a transistor or a semi-conductor.

The concept of SSD’s is closely linked to security within computer systems. As technologies diversify, computers become more vulnerable to attacks .We have always known that solid state devices are great at fighting viruses and intrusions, and this helps us design better anti-virus programs for use in many scenarios. The working of an anti-virus depends largely on the platform they are working on. If the attached hardware is easily compromised, then the potency of that program is reduced. At the same time, the speed at which the antivirus will detect problems and disinfect parts of a system depends on the ability of the underlying mechanisms. There is no doubt that SSD’s work way better with anti-viruses than those old systems which were built on vacuums or gas-discharge technologies.

Solid state devices have solved many security concerns, as evidenced by the leaps they have helped us make in the field of data security and system integrity. Today, we are seeing the advance of technologies that allow for anti-virus protections to be set up to work in a particular way. Such programs facilitate the scanning and disinfection of many areas of a single system over the same time span. They also have the ability to combine SSD potentialities and solve problems facing several devices over an integrated network.

International Solid State Circuits Conference 2016

The IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) is proposed to take place between 31st of January to the 4th of February in the year 2016 in San Francisco, CA. The theme of the conference is “Silicon Systems for the Internet of Everything” (IoE). As a result of technology, the world has changed in the sense that people and devices are becoming connected expeditiously.

It is this era of the Internet of Everything (IoE) that human beings and all the surrounding things are able to communicate meticulously and work together through processes deemed to be intelligent. Most importantly, the IoE is bringing about the diverse opportunities through which human beings can improve their standards of living. People are therefore able to create exponential growth, thus generating wealth.

IoE’s future growth may be slowed down by security and power-efficiency if the two are not addressed. ISSCC will, therefore, be trying to advance IoE to a higher level by seeking innovations in circuits and systems so that the human life can become better. Essentially, solid-state electronics are those electronics that have solid-state circuits and systems at their core and includes:

Intelligent networks
• Smart sensors
• Data centers
• Personal computing among others
Solid-state electronics as the name suggests, include those devices and circuits that are built from solid materials. The electrons of these devices are confined within the solid material that they are built from. The most common building material in these electronics is the crystalline semiconductor. Some of these devices include:
• Microprocessor chips
• RAM
• Transistors

Flash memory is the specialized type of RAM that is used in flash drives. Solid-state drives have also been devised to replace the hard disc drives whose mechanism are that of a rotating magnet.
Note that the electric current in solid-state components is enclosed by the solid elements and the compounds that are contrived to either boost or switch it.
