SQUASH, RFID, MAC
We evaluate SQUASH, a new MAC for RFID, in hardware and software. A smaller hardware design for SQUASH is proposed which also reduces latency. Area and latency in hardware are reduced further with a new variant we call permuted SQUASH. We explore SQUASH on embedded microprocessors and propose a method to choose the optimal partial product ordering to reduce latency.
