Also, these don't appear to be in stock anywhere. I was going to hedge my bet and buy some.. but Digikey, Farnell/Element 14, Arrow, and others don't seem to have any in stock at the moment.
If you're in EUROPE, RS-Components has some in stock. But they won't ship to the US. I found some similar knock-off kits on eBay and Aliexpress, but nothing quite matching the STM32F429I-DiSCO partlist/layout.
Is there an alternate board that will work for the majority of the topics comming next week? It looks like STM32F429I-DISCO is the only board with an LCD that I could find, how integral is that to the upcoming topics?
Since the topic is bound to be archived, those of us unlucky enough not to win a board can always wait until some become available, and come back to the class (provided it's archived and made available, like the first two are) and pick it up from there, though we'll lose the benifit of the Q&A.
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.
