Basic System Features and Component

ADEC Analyzer

The heart of the ADEC™ system is the ADEC Signature Analyzer. The Signature Analyzer is an ultra-sensitive high-throughput analytical capability that provides high performance counterfeit detection. All functions are accessed through the integrated touchscreen monitor (8” High Brightness TFT LCD Touch Screen) or via plug-in mouse or keyboard. The unit also supplies all manufacturer’s specified Input/Output (I/O) including power, ground, and clock to parts being tested. The ADEC Signature Analyzer controls the testing process and provides automated results for each sample tested. The Analyzer can also be operated in manual mode to collect part signature data directly. The Analyzer includes all connective and power cabling required to operate the ADEC system.

Integrated Antenna Enclosure (IAE)

The ADEC Integrated Antenna Enclosure (IAE) is a bench top test chamber specifically designed for collecting extremely low power Radio Frequency (RF) energy over a wide frequency range. The unique shape of the IAE allows for maximum reception of emanating RF energy from Integrated Circuits (ICs) and/or populated Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs). Test fixtures are mounted via a drawer-like access panel at the base of the unit. I/Os necessary to power the electronics being tested are ported through an access panel that provides maximum signal integrity to the device under test (DUT). The collection antenna is integrated into the IAE. During testing measured spectral data is automatically ported back into the analyzer from the IAE.

Optional Software


ADEC Emulator™

The ADEC Emulator is an offline assessment tool that allows the user to view and analyze data from the ADEC system in an emulated environment to support custom analyses and algorithm parameter optimization. This tool allows the user to make detailed assessments of signatures from multiple parts simultaneously, which facilities efficient assessment of signature variations caused by counterfeiting, part cloning, program modifications or IC tamper. The Emulator provides unique analytical and informatic tools for detailed signature analysis. The operator is able to import saved data and perform algorithm parameter optimization to maximize Probability of detection (Pd) and minimize False Alarm Rate (FAR) for parts of interest. The ADEC Emulator is fully compatible with all data collected from the four channel ADEC System.

Hiawatha Spectrum Analyzer (HSA)

The HSA is a highly-sensitive multi-channel spectrum analysis tool that allows the user to perform real-time assessments of emissions signature data over multiple frequency ranges simultaneously streaming live data measured through the Hiawatha sensor. The operator can control each channel individually, selecting frequency, span, and Resolution Bandwidth (RBW) to focus on regions of interest to a particular part. The HSA is ideal for evaluating time-varying behavior of signatures, as well as for observing signatures that may exhibit variance in response to an external stimulus or modification of part wiring configuration. The HSA takes full advantage of the Hiawatha's high sensitivity, which is better than -170 dbm at room temperature and 1 HZ resolution. This allows the user to analyze low level signatures that cannot otherwise be observed using COTS spectrum analyzers. The HSA is a software upgradable option for the standard four channel ADEC System.

Broadband Data Acquisition System

The Broadband Data Acquisition System is a wide spectrum data capture tool that allows the user to rapidly acquire high-acuity spectral data over the entire spectral range supported by the ADEC system (30 MHz – 3 GHz).  The user can specify acquisition frequency resolution and acquisition time as well as other data processing parameters.  Acquired bandwidth can be continuous and complete or specified to capture signature data in frequency regions of interest for a particular part. The ADEC Emulator can be used to manually or automatically analyze data acquired using this system.  As such, one can evaluate a wide range of spectral data and identify multiple potential indicators of device counterfeiting or program modifications.  The Broadband Data Acquisition System is fully compatible with the standard four channel ADEC System.
