Real-Time Debugging for Highly Integrated Embedded Wireless Devices News & Analysis 7/14/2000 Post a comment The good news is that we can now cram a lot of functionality into our system-on-chips, including multiple processors. The bad news is that we still have to debug our hardware/software designs and make them work. The really good news is that we have the test hardware and software to do the job, even for MP systems. David Ruimy Gonzales and Brian Branson discuss why debugability is especially critical for wireless portable devices.
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.
