One doesn't need to wander very far across today's FPGA landscape to see how power consumption is becoming a more and more critical issue. As product categories that once shied away from FPGAs, such as mobile consumer devices, open up to them, both static and dynamic power consumption become paramount.

In 2007, a programmable logic startup called M2000 moved its headquarters to Silicon Valley and said it was on the verge of launching what it described as "breakthrough" technology that would provide higher logic density, functionality and speed at less cost than competing solutions. But since then, not much has been heard from M2000. So what has the company and its breakthrough technology been up to?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
