TI's specifications always look great on paper, but I will not be impress yet. Not until I see them in production and see that they have low lead times and all the features they specify on the specs sheets works as intended.
When I was receiving my briefing from TI, my eye fell on the "System" part of the block diagram shown above and I noted that I was happy to see 12 PWM channels.
Then they pointed out that there were another 16 PWM channels in the "Motion Control" subsystem!
Good grief -- give me strength -- with one of these little rascals I could rule the world!!!
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.
