Possible erratum with the statement that "50% more power is provided for unconfigured or suspended devices (150mA up from 100mA)."
The USB 3.0 spec says that "Suspended devices, whether configured or not, shall limit their bus power consumption as to the suspend mode power requirements in the USB 2.0 specification".
Table 7.7 of the USB 2.0 specification states that low-power devices are limited to 0.5mA and high-power devices are limited to 2.5mA during suspend.
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.
