Anytime new chip is released and all the focus is marketing technology “22nm”, "finfet",etc. versus what the chip is delivering (i.e. chip power / chip performance etc. ) highlights there is a problem. Physical demand for chip is weak. Product level specs are not that competitive with FPGA/ASIC and Acronix marking is pushing risking IP model versus selling chips. that is the real story

In some sense, Achronix is the property of Intel. Not really an inependent company and a direct competitor of Xilinx or Altera.

As transistor size goes deeper & PVT issues dramatically increases, asynchronous design techniques become more and more appealing. Intel knows that, and not only shows its interest throughout the special relation with Achronix. Few years ago, Intel acquired Fulcrum Micro, maybe the first company that succesfully introduced in the market an asynchronous logic based device. But the really interesting point is that Achronix doesn't talk about its wonderful asynchronous architecture anymore... what's all this recent secrecy about? What are Intel real intentions with Achronix??

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
