The advantage is that the FPGA can be reprogrammed - like an SRAM-based FPGA. However, unlike an SRAM-based FPGA, it is not sensitive to radiation, and thus is ideal for space-based applications. Currently antifuse-based FPGAs provide radiation resistance, but are only one-time programmable. So carbon-based FPGAs combine the advantages of SRAM-based and antifuse-based FPGAs.

As we now know NuPGA is no longer pursuing FPGA technology but rather fully committed to farther develop its monolithic 3D IC technology breakthrough. Accordingly it change its name to MonolithIC 3D Inc. More information could be found on its web www.MonolithIC3D.com

How is this advantageous over regular FPGA? I am currently doing research on speeding up the routing process for regular FPGA for dynamic runtime reconfiguration. So I would be interested to know how much reconfiguration speed-up that this can give. http://sunnyeves.blogspot.com/

Oh, and I hope he's successful! The reprogrammable chip company graveyard was and is a busy place!

That is super cool! I wonder what downsides (besides manufacturability) there are. ie. w.r.t. leakage, power consumption of the graphene, etc.

So exactly what is the advantage of the carbon antifuse over existing techniques? The article does not state what makes these qualitatively better.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
