It is a big step to change the heartbeat of your system. These use a piezo resonator fabricated at MEMs level, not quite the same as a quartz crystal.
But if it delivers, expect to see it built into SoCs.
I'm still waiting for MCUs and oscillator manufacturers to implement a differential interface for low EMI. Now pin count isn't so critical there's no excuse
pMEMS is a quartz crystal free oscillator.The company says this is more reliable and lower cost compared to the quartz based oscillators. They also provide a evaluation board to test these components easily. They are seeming to even provide few thousand numbers of custom specified frequencies.
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.
