Waterloo Solutions addresses the significant challenge of global counterfeiting, an issue causing annual losses of approximately $1.8 trillion. Waterloo Solutions has developed Qrystal™, a groundbreaking anti-counterfeiting technology for microelectronics crucial in AI and defense systems.
Qrystal™ is unique: it embeds conductive graphite and gold within the interior of lab-grown single-crystal and polycrystal CVD diamond wafers. This surpasses traditional surface etching, enabling enhanced internal connectivity within the diamond structure.
Qrystal™ diamond dies integrate seamlessly into 3D stacked integrated circuit chiplets, offering advanced connectivity and efficient heat management. The core of its anti-counterfeiting capabilities lies in a one-time programmable, non-volatile memory (OTP NVM) eFuse module. This module embeds unalterable identifiers or cryptographic keys, forming a robust defense against counterfeit microelectronics.
Waterloo Solutions is dedicated to enhancing the security and integrity of essential technological components in various industries, addressing the critical risks of counterfeit defense microelectronics with potential hidden malware. With Qrystal™, Waterloo Solutions is at the forefront of protecting industry integrity against the growing tide of global counterfeiting.
