Live Chat: Are the Glory Days of Analog Engineering Over?
Our next live online chat will commence on Friday June 20, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (1:00 p.m. Eastern Time). You'll have to work out your local time from these clues (you can always use this handy-dandy Time Zone Converter).
Your hosts will be Karen Field (EETimes) and Steve Taranovich (Planet Analog), along with Max Maxfield (EETimes) making a guest appearance. The topic of conversation will be anything and everything to do with analog engineering and the simultaneous dwindling in and rising demand for analog skills.
As always, we will be following our usual practice of leaping from topic to topic with the agility of young, fearless mountain goats, so make sure you're wearing appropriate clothing!
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.
