With multiple foundries at leading edge able to manufacture ARM, I think the cost advantage is still in ARM's favor. In fact, wouldn't Intel even consider manufacturing ARM in its new reported foundry service capacity?
This may be good for cosumers. However, this is demanding task and needs lots of research, design and marketing resources. Margin may not be high. Should Intel be more concerned about this market? If yes, will Intel suffer from unable to focus on their core strength and market?
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.
