I was not aware that Altera was also offering DC-DC converter products. I missed the news of the aquisition of Enpirion by Altera.
I guess it was a good strategy for Altera to aquired and to have technical control over the DC-DC power converter products in order to offer optimized FPGA design solutions for higher efficiency, better power integrity. Thanks for providing the link of the reference designs.
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.
