I know that in the past companies that used asynchronous logic tried to hide that fact - because of unproven technology,tools,etc - even if it worked great.
Now they overuse the word "asynchronous" as a buzzword - as if it'd give some advantage.
I think it's misleading. First, there are several very different approaches to design asynchronous logic. Second, it's likely that the design has some synchronous logic, so it's not entirely asynchronous.
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.
