Baysand Claims that they can deliver Metal Programmable Gate Arrays at the same density, lower power and same cost as ASIC. In addition for logic changes their turn around time is 1-3 months and cost of initial design is way less than FPGA. I personally believe they would be better off as a FPGA replacement.
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.
