Phishing Chips ...... a Traditional British Delicacy/Simple Appetising Stalwart

Yes, although that would probably be truer reading ...."Furthermore, protecting intellectual property and military secrets is problematic because these are often to be embedded in the design of ICs, and the manufacturer in the fabrication process often needs the details of the designs."
However, armed with all such sensitive parameters can a failsafe design be easily fabricated to perform above and beyond the call of duty......... in order to herald the next phase of dDevelopment, hitherto probably not even considered. Although that old Rummy warhorse touched upon it, although whether just inadverently, it wouldn't really matter .... "Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns -- the ones we don't know we don't know."
And some would have you believe that aliens talk GBIrish. Let's get real. If something doesn't make Perfect Sense, it is probably because you do not yet understand IT Perfectly. The SMARTer Fool will then simply ask pertinent direct questions and listen to the responses/alternate answers.
