One Drone to Rule Them All

The ZANO Drone Flying High with a Little Help from xPico WiFi

Buckle your seatbelt, make sure your tray table is stowed, and be sure you’ve read our helpful in-flight safety pamphlet – because we’re taking flight! This week’s Fish Fry is about the tiniest drone this side of CES – the ZANO nano drone. My guest is Keith Chu (Lantronix) and we’re getting into the WiFi-enabled guts of this itty-bitty WiFi controlled nano drone. (Spoiler Alert: You fly it with your smart phone!) Also this week, we’re checking out a new quadcopter that would make Han Solo proud, and looking into how you can leverage the power of Simulink and MATLAB in your next SoC/FPGA design.
