TFT-LCD regulator drives low-voltage portables Product News 5/1/2005 Post a comment Maxim touts the ability of its MAX8739 regulator, which includes two high-current operational amplifiers for driving active-matrix, thin-film transistor liquid-crystal displays (TFT-LCDs), to work at input voltages down to 1.8 V. Suited for notebook and automotive applications, the regulator includes a logic-controlled, high-voltage switch with adjustable delay.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
