Achronix Gets Ready to Roll
In a special executive focus Fish Fry, this week I interview Achronix CEO Robert Blake about Achronix's new high-end FPGA family (based on Intel’s new 22nm Tri-Gate technology). Robert and I discuss why this new family may be a serious contender - going head-to-head with the most powerful FPGAs from the big guys. We also explore what their software tool story looks like, and why domain-specific hard IP may be the key ingredient in their secret sauce.
Also this week, I am giving everyone another chance to win a MACHXO Pico Development Kit courtesy of Lattice Semiconductor, but you'll have to listen to find out how to win.

Fish Fry Executive Interviews
Posted on April 27, 2012 at 1:35 PMI'd like the development kit. Maybe I'll make a USB attached thermometer.
Posted on May 01, 2012 at 5:52 AMHello, I'd like a MachXO2 development kit.
I might try to make some gadgets to keep and eye on my greenhouse.
Posted on May 03, 2012 at 3:14 PMHi, i am looking forward to use this MachX02 in my final year project which is basically a strum kind of bot, this kit will be attach to monitor the temperature of stepper motors specially during its dive in water.
Posted on May 03, 2012 at 4:47 PMI would like to use MachXO2 kit in my new DIY project of building a modified version of 3D printing Makerbot(MakerFaire Industries).
The temperature sensor and character 7-segment LCD are the perfect features that I need to make this bot; the temperature sensor to monitor ABS-plastic melting and LCD to display co-ordinates of it.Indeed a compact version of Makerbot,replacing thermistor and Arduino by single MachXO2 kit.
