@DrFPGA: Lattice seems to be on point with a complete solution- devices, IP, development kit and an application expert as a partner.
I agree -- I'm very impressed with the stuff Lattice uis coming up with -- they target specific areas of interest like HetNet and Sensor Fusion and then leap into the fray with gusto and abandon (and great solutions).
Lattice seems to be on point with a complete solution- devices, IP, development kit and an application expert as a partner. Too often FPGA guys roll out a solution that doesn't include real world application knowledge. It's difficult to create this capability in house since standards and algorithms evolve so quickly. Better to find the right partner and leverage their knowledge. Well done Lattice.
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.
