The Zynq architecture is a paradigm shift in FPGA architectures/programming as it's now essentially processor/software centred. Xilinx should rightly be congratulated for this innovative product. I was however disappointed to learn that the bandwidth between the logic fabric and DRAM is less than 1GB/s. This excludes these chips from some high-end computing applications I am particularly interested in. It would be interesting to know Xilinx' roadmap in terms of architectural developments of this new line.

In would be interesting to go back and look at all the product of the year devices and see how many of them were actual successes in the market. Might make a nice article . Anyone want to take a stab at it?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
