Here's what they say on the website: No matter how you call it - Prima Aprilis, April Fools’ Day, All Fools’ Day, Aprilscherz, Jour du poisson d’avril or Hunt the gowk Day - thank you for your sense of humour and thank you that you took our joke. yours sincerely, DCD Team These guys do IPs not physical chips...

I can understand the confusion and misinformation regarding the BYT-ON. It's still a pretty new technology. In fact, it's so new that I'm surprised they have it ready to ship. I've been expecting the company to first ship the BYT-ME version.

I'm taking everything I read today, including the weather forecast, with a grain of low sodium salt. Whan that Aprille with his shoures soote The droghte 2 of Marche hath perced to the roote, And bathed every veyne in swich licour, Of which vertu engendred is the flour... Happy April 1! If it's still on the market tomorrow I'll buy it.

I just heard back from an unidentified underling for Lattice Semiconductor, speaking on condition of anonymity. The following is his (or her) direct quote: “Well, it’s always something, isn’t it? Really, there’s only so much technology one can evaluate in any given day before one is just exhausted. So, while we can neither confirm nor deny any rumors linking grapheme-based FPGAs and Lattice, we can categorically state that we may or may not look into it further. Or not.” Well, that seems to be fairly conclusive to me ... there's obviously a coverup going on ... what do you think?

I'm going to ask the folks from the FPGA companies to comment on this technology

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
