Wow ! 14nm and FinFET. Seems like SoC processes from foundries are moving ahead faster than one would expect given all the physics challenges. Even if Samsung early risk production is at the end of 2013, the other guys better keep moving.
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.
