I like this move...instead of going down with Moore's law in CMOS which is very costly it is better for a company like Xfab to go lateral and acquire MEMs business...however, I wonder what is the stage of standardization in the MEMs space, last time I looked everyone had a different process, the MEMs manufacturing eco-system needs to become more vanilla like CMOS in the 70-ies
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.
