The first time I heard the concept of a Multi-Project Wafer shuttle program -- in which multiple companies share the cost of a mask set by creating their sub-chip as part of a larger devuce -- I thought "What a good idea". Now, the folks at eSilicon are making it easier to get involved in these shuttle programs. "Cool Beans," is all I can say :-)
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.
