And on Monday evening, ST announced silicon proof that FD-SOI gives them 30% higher speed and up to 50% improvement in power. IBS estimates that FD-SOI per-die cost will come in at about half of bulk planar or FinFET. Not bad!!
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.
