I am just wondering how is the simulation of the mechanical part done. It is easy to simulate the electrical part but difficult to do so for the mechanical properties - they could change in the manufacturing process.
I was wondering how the designers were able to get it right on silicon. What is the under the hood simulation engine based on? Is it spice or something else altogether? Will this advanced tool allow for cheaper, more accurate MEMs in the near future? One can only hope and dream..
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.
