This is an interesting alternative to an MCU with integrated LCD control. The MCU can focus on system control and the MicroSemi part can do all the detailed LCD functions. Makes it easier to migrate the MCU too since there is no need to stick with a specific vendors LCD controller implementation.
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.
