With this latest infusion of capital mCube will try to start landing design wins in the U.S., Europe and whereever smartphones are sold.
What a Design it is! MEMS and ASIC all together in single chip. Reducing the Size and Increasing performance. At the same time it is more precise with 14bit accuracy. Not even that this confirms lower price as compared to presently available bare sensors. Really remarkable indeed.
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.
