First of all, Xilinx's "stacked" product is really not a true 3D vertical stack, a lateral one using interposers. This is not trivial either, in particular for FPGA's! The risk that article is referring to is minimal from a Silicon perspective given the design attributes Xilinx is using. There is probably more risk in the packaging part of it. Both Xilinx and Altera both have been beaten by Tabula which uses 21-nm technology for FPGA's. Tabula is already sampling its products for the rapidly emerging networking chips in the 40Gig / 100Gig market space. Dr. MP Divakar
