The security of IoT devices is significantly increasing as a consequence of the widespread usage of the Internet of Things (IoT) in applications that include confidential data and implementation of important control decisions using those data. Because of their cheap cost and computational limitations, IoT devices confront significant obstacles in safeguarding. Among the variety of devised tactics analyzing power is one of the most potential strategies to address such challenges. However, due to the size, cost, and power consumption of power analysis devices, this strategy is not suited for many IoT applications. In this thesis, two techniques for collecting power signatures were proposed. A commercial 130nm CMOS technology is used to construct two circuits for each technique. For the purpose of determining how correctly the setups function, a considerable number of simulations are run under various conditions, and the results are assessed.
