Programming at the transistor connectivity level rather than at the logic connectivity, seems to me like a serious piece of technology. However unless I see good CAD tools for this stuff, I am a skeptic. Power is one major player, at transistor level maybe they are able to optimize power better than at the gate level. But one question, how does they control the width of the NMOS and PMOS transistors ? for meeting the necessary drive strengths. It seems it is not completely erasable and programmable makes it hard to compete with FPGAs. But for a quick turn around, this can be a go to replacement for ASIC.
