The next question is how far can they get without interposer?

We hear even with Intel matching TSMC with die-pricing (a loss leader for Intel), Achronix 22nm part is not competitive (power and leakage) with other FPGA. why part not sampling why Achronix needs to change business model

I think the 'mobile applications' has an inferred 'Mobile infrastructure applications' - and certainly those base stations care far less about power, than throughput and flexibility.

So what's the story with these FPGAs? Are they really clockless, as the name states, or did they abandon that scheme?

These small FPGA companies need some good 3rd-party tools. They can hand off the synthesis to Synplify, but somebody needs to make some 3rd-party place & route tool that can service all these little FPGA companies. Surely 80% of the work is common to different architectures.

IMO what FPGA vendors need (and what they've always needed) is to open up their architectures and bit stream formats so that FLOSS software developers can take a crack at it. There are myriad applications for FPGAs that aren't progressing well because it's too cumbersome to use the vendors' tools. These include reconfigurable computing and specialized high-performance parallel architecture. It's just too hard to make progress in these areas with vendor tools so the people working in those areas simply do it in other ways, causing FPGA vendors to miss out on a lot of opportunity and miss out on the savings of letting others write their tools. JMO/YMMV

Adapting IP strategy is really tough. However as we know the demand are so high and it boost up the marketplace. - [url=http://o2media.us/contact-o2-media/]O2 Media[/url]
