Silicon nanowire synthesis is CMOS-compatible, claims Leti News & Analysis 10/7/2009 Post a comment The Electronics and Information Technology Laboratory of the CEA (CEA-Leti) of France has demonstrated that the synthesis of silicon nanowire can be achieved at temperatures as low as 400°C by using a copper-based catalyst and an unconventional preparation method.
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.
