Xilinx WP369 was dated April 27, 2010 describing the ARM and Xilinx FPGA, but we are now in October, 2011. Already the second half of 2011. Similar to Altera with 18 to 24 months of pre-announcement. When announced at 28nm, it is impressive, but with Moore's law and the time periods, by the time it ships the next node is past 28nm. I'm sure it is difficult to get this correct, but rather bring out eval board closer to announcement dates like Freescale and TI. I would like to use the chip but will see what the tools cost. Happy with TI and Freescale's devices at higher frequencies that are shipping already.

The processor centric nature of these devices is a nice improvement. It will be interesting to see what applications will benefit from the combined closely coupled FPGA and processor vs the traditional separate Processor and FPGA. Historically the added cost for a single device implementation has been the big barrier. $15 can buy a lot of processor and FPGA as separate devices...
