I am trying to figure out what's going on with the flash MCU market out there.

If you are looking to use 40nm embedded Flash MCU, what do you see as your option today?

Junko,

Do you have any idea what kind of market share the two companies have?

@Junko: One interesting company in the flash market today is infineon which has 65nm flash microcontrollers and is working on 40nm flash.

In contrary with the other companies you mentioned , they use this technology to enable manufacturing of low end microcontrollers using advanced processes , which can offer lower prices and unique capabilities like alot of ram and interesting hardfware units. For example , their xmc1000 family seems close to unbeatable for low end industrial microcontrollers,and that's without 40nm. It would be interesting to see what would they offer once they have access to 40nm.

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.
