I work with units that have many FPGA's used in the circuit designs. From a technicians perspective, not knowing exactly the designers programming concepts, is there a good way to go in and debug FPGA issues. I find the only way to look at inputs and outputs on a logic analyzer but would like to know whether there is a better way to troubleshoot FPGA circuits when often the design engineers are no longer around?
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.
