The New Chip In Town

Achronix Shakes Up The FPGA Scene

As the ‘70s rock band the Eagles put it so appropriately, “They will never forget you until somebody new comes along.” Hey Xilinx and Altera, there’s a new kid in town…and he’s got a big brother will a lot of money, power, and a hot new process technology. This week’s Fish Fry is all about the biggest EE news to hit the streets, Achronix (with Intel) is now shipping their Speedster22i FPGAs and the programmable marketplace may never look the same again. My guest is Robert Blake (CEO – Achronix) and we’re gonna get into the details of this announcement and check out where Achronix is headed.

Also this week, I’ve got a brand new nerdy giveaway – The Microchip TCHIP003 chipKIT™ Starter Pak – courtesy of Mouser and Microchip Technology. If you want one for your very own, listen to this week’s broadcast to find out how you can enter to win.
