I am an Anglophile and have been all my life. Still, is it necessary to call a Brit or anyone by a title? Americans do not have nobility or royalty, de jure. Call him, or any other ennobled Brit, by his last name, or first, if you're familiar. As I said, I'm an Anglophile but we don't use fancy titles for Rothchilds and anyone in the Almanach de Gotha.
No reason for an American to fawn over someone, even a cousin.
Appreciate these techonology development insights. But, . . ., one quarter column worth of reading material in each click? My 1920 x 1080 laptop screen can fit at least six of these slides in a screenful. I understand the need for sponsors and advertisements; but with all the formatted content on this page, inclidng the ad, occupy less than 50% of my screen, with two large white margins left open on either side. For reading convenience, please consider posting at least two of these slides on each page.
I, on the other hand, enjoy clicking once for each word in the article.
This is especially effective on slower browsers, where the densely-populated and expertly-coded EET web page takes torturous seconds to load and I stop reading the article, but am _sure_ to read the advertisements, v e r y s l o w l y.
I read the Cyclos white paper with great interest. The resonant concept is simple but it may be too simple. The white paper focuses heavily on clock tree power and skew - to be sure these are vitally important aspects of IC design - but so is jitter. In certain applications jitter can be a show-stopper and my engineering sense tells me that a parallel resonant tuned clock tree (being of high impedance) would be very susceptible to jitter generated from crosstalk.
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.
