Achronix Takes Speedster to Production Prime Time

The green flag dropped long ago. The pole-sitters have put the pedal to the metal on their high-octane beasts and vanished around the bend. Circling the course, the leaders of the pack fly ahead, their eyes fixed on the twists and turns of smaller and smaller geometries, without even a glance into the rearview. Don’t look now! A dark horse is coming up quickly and quietly, stealthily stalking both leaders, attacking their most profitable lines. The programmable logic race has been ruled by a duopoly for years, but now an up-an-comer looks to change the race – once and for all. My guest this week is Robert Blake (CEO – Achronix) and Robert is here to discuss how Achronix is speeding ahead to full volume production, why (sometimes) it’s best to buy and not invent new parts for their FPGA engine, and what it’s like to be a pilot in the Bay Area.
