IP providers like ARM will work with all the leading foundries. (right now, TSMC & GF) They definitely would not exclude a top foundry.
I'm sure ARM will have tight restrictions on information sharing between those projects.
It would be significant if they also do something similar with Samsung.
I really hope there is room to other competitors, ARM has build an impressive portfolio and a collaborative environment, however, the customer will lose in the long run without real competition to ARM. Same argument is valid for TSMC and GFI as well.
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.
