@Frank: I'm a bit fuzzy at the moment (I just arrived at my brother's house after flying through the night from the USA to the UK via Amsterdam) -- buy from what I recall from my previous blog, these 10 series devices look pretty ood re power dissipation and themal...

@KB3001: Yes, I remember working on the Xilinx XC6200 15 years ago, struggling to fit a 64-bit buffer LOL

I bet the folks who conceived the first FPGAs would have had no idea where this technology would lead ... but I'm sure that's true of all technologies (telephone, television, computers...)

@Ryan and Max : I also agree. Anyhow, for Aviation applications, the new point at stake is whether such horsepower is usable with respect to safety (process below 28nm for instance). For Military applications thermal issues are also a big concern.

@KB3001: It's incredible how platforms FPGAs are evolving in the last few years!

It really is -- if you take a step back and look at things over time, it blows your mind!

@Ryan: Keep in mind the intended target for these devices are not for consumer markets. Think mil, medical, aviation, comms backhaul. That's where we typically use a high end FPGA like this.

Very true

@betajet: Is there any pricing information yet?

I don't think I'll be buying one for my mom for Christmas :-)

Well, current high-end Stratix parts start at about $2k each at low quantities (and can go up to $20k!), so expect pricing to start in the several thousands.

Keep in mind the intended target for these devices are not for consumer markets. Think mil, medical, aviation, comms backhaul. That's where we typically use a high end FPGA like this.
