I wonder if any chip vendor intends to support the growing robotics market with a high end processor and FPGA built in for personality/feature hardware support? I can find a plethora of micro/embedded types of processors, there are extensive FPGA offerings but the combination seems slim. The power savings, cost/size savings, and performance would be a great advantage to the myriad of robotic applications. Is there any good options out there?

Please get Shoesfuucking.com off these web pages. The article was very good though.

@RoboticsDeveloper: yes, that would be a good thing, even if it is "last year's" FPGA. Sometimes the push for next-gen stuff leaves little opportunity for a trickle-down of technology. All it would take is some simplified software -- most of the FPGA tools are unfriendly to the new guys. BTW, why would anyone want to fork their shoes?

What are you looking for? I may can help. At least I would be very interested what type of System/subsystem you are looking for.

@RoboticsDeveloper: What is it you are asking for that's different from what Intel has announced? I think this is an great pairing, and can't wait to start using it.

The targeted market of the new chips seemingly is STB. Previous article has indicated Atom chip is growing properly in telecommunication segment. Is there any specific Atom being built for this particular segment and others?

Elsewhere on EET, GateRocket have a neat tool to accelerate RTL simulation, by 'plugging' their hardware box containing a real FPGA into the simulator environment. These new Intel devices might be tough for them to integrate into their emulator boxes?

I saw an FPGA app store suggested over at the daily circuit. That would be crazy!

This may be designed originally for Defense market. In that market, space and integration is of prime importance. Having both Atom and FPGA makes design very integrated and can resolve many differrent application. One example is small pocket/handheld PC for Army on the field or software define radio.
