Another cool thing about this is that programmable logic designers can extend their 'reach' into the power sections of their board design fairly easily. The few analog components that get placed along side the Platform Manager parts are easy to understand (even for a digital designer). The analog designers who typically implement these designs with a host of transistors, diodes and amps better watch out or the PLD/FPGA guy may be taking over their job in the next design...

I don't know what is the most exciting thing about this new mixed-signal family. On the one hand we have a mix of programmable analog and programmable digital (comprising both CPLD and FPGA fabric) -- on the other hand the programming model that can be used by anyone (even analog dweebs [grin]) is rather cool also...
