$200 million for one FPGA? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 5/20/2008 2 comments Thus far I haven't seen the pricing for Altera's new 40nm Stratix IV FPGAs, but if we were to extrapolate from an analog device I just saw, the result would make your eyes water!
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.
