The Valley of FPGA

Where Green Pastures End

by Kevin Morris

Just about every electronic technology on the market today has alternatives. Between custom chips, ASSPs, pre-built modules, embedded processors, microcontrollers, FPGAs, and a host of other silicon-based goodies, there are always numerous ways to solve any given problem. As engineers, we make our choice based on any number of criteria - cost, power, size, reliability, our familiarity and experience with the technology, our company’s preferences... all of them weigh into our decision.  Read More

I never found out! Guess it was something like shout louder.

(Almost) Like FPGAs, Only Better

Oh YES smiling

Now for a device that is the best of both ... large dense hard logic IP section for core invariant algorithms, plus a fair sized FPGA section, for the data center compute applications.

Thanks Kevin!

It comes down to responsibly taking risks and doing due diligence for mitigating and evaluating those risks.

When dealing with other valuable items, there are well established vetting processes, and more importantly required bonds, for doing business.

@gobeavs, Achronix is not toast. They are busy making and selling FPGAs. See Steve Mensor's reply on the other thread where you asked about them:

New FPGAs... From China?

Posted on 08/25/15 at 7:14 AM by gobeavs

Speaking of FPGA startups, what is the latest with Achronix?

They must have died by now. I see no new press releases. I see no new funding for them.

They must be toast.
