Achronix is to be congratulated - it's very hard for semics startups to raise VC cash these days, especially when they've already spent a lot and are still a way off revenue yet. I hope they make it!

Areas like Semi and EDA cannot match the market scope and timeline of Web 2.0 firms like Groupon, who just entered China. As for timeline, my favorite example is Urban Airship in Portland, Oregon who started in early June, 2009 as a two person, self-funded (bootstrapped) operation and at the end of July, 2010 secured $5.4 Million in Series A VC funding (and just moved over two dozen people into a cool new office in the Pearl District).

Too small compared to the potentials of this firm. It is a pity that peopled do not like hardware firms. The world is not going softare. When Groupon was getting $900m, Achronix should do better.
