Abstract
The new technology of AT-PCB’s will significantly enhance multi-level anti-tamper protection of military electronics. The design is neither physically or functionally accessible to an adversary, yet it is flexible as to support protection for multiple devices or entire circuit board (rack mounted) assembly. It is amenable to affordable parts acquisition and assembly that minimizes impact to electronics assembly AT-PCB’s can be bulk produced as larger panels that individually incorporate the secondary power storage needs necessary to support the AT systems protection. The design recognizes any physical or chemical attempts too gain access to either the secondary storage or its connectivity to IC components. The design can also be implemented as to be self-rechargeable independent from the electronics bus.
