Mvon, As you know, there are many factors around cost. First, our integrated SmartFusion solution is typically priced the same or less than the individual components would cost if purchased separately. Secondly, the benefit of a single monolithic solution gives you less vendors to deal with, fewer components to mount and route, and higher reliability. Finally, the biggest benefit is in flexibility - you can make tradeoffs between hardware and software after you layout your PCB - which translates into faster time to market, which is, as they say "priceless". Let me know if you would like any more information about SmartFusion. Regards, Rich

I agree that this integration is a great enhancement, but has the cost of the solution been considered?
