Application: Methods and tools for preventing the counterfeiting and tampering of semiconductor devices (Patent ID: US20240054502A1)

The patent filed by Intel Corp. describes an authentication system that involves inspection tools and methods for authenticating devices. The system includes imaging units and processors that generate hash values based on images of physical features of the device, allowing for comparison and authentication of the device as authentic and untampered. The authentication tool can utilize x-ray and optical imaging units to capture images of specific physical features like thermal interface material voids or laser etchings, which are then converted into hash values for comparison.

The method outlined in the patent involves conducting inspections at different sites using inspection tools that are copy exact, generating secure values from the inspections, and comparing these values to authenticate the device. The system also includes a data library for storing hash values and allows for comparison with manufacturer-provided hash values. By utilizing a hashing algorithm with parameters from the manufacturer, the system ensures the authenticity and integrity of the device. Overall, the patent details a comprehensive authentication system that leverages imaging, hashing, and comparison processes to verify the authenticity of devices and prevent tampering.
