Interesting! 22nm is like a huge boost to Achronix. I am wondering what all could be the applications of the combined CPU and FPGA fabric chip. @KB3001 Programmer productivity depends on programmers knowledge of the FPGA architecture & Quality of the SW tools available. IMO Achronix may be lagging compared to Altera & Xilinx in this area.

It is interesting Intel chose to tie up with a small start-up with an asynchronous FPGA technology (which is the norm in the FPGA market). Programmer productivity is a major issue in FPGA design. How's the choice of Achronix as a partner help in this?

Now makes a lots of sense. Processor giant starts to fight back after FPGA vendors decided to integrate processor. I'm wondering who will be next in the move. Are there any other small FPGA startups left over could be gobbled by company such as TI, Qualcom, Broadcom, and Marvell?
