it's well known that OMAP5 includes HDMI-TX, but not DisplayPort... (TI is quite open on their specs, cf TI's website)
And if that's not a leading Apps processor, I don't know what is.
And as a consumer, I do care that enabling displayport on a 24" LCD costs about 15% of the price of the LCD. I'll live with the added power-cord (hopefully USB-based) gladly.
Consumers go for convenience, so interoperability with legacy displays and getting rid of a power cord will be a big deal. They could care less about a $0.40 royalty or the virtues of micropackets. Hopefully, DisplayPort will get traction in the handset 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.
