Seems MIPS is doing ok

It will be interesting to see how long Altera supports all these platforms. FPGA guys go thru these expansion/contraction phases every few years. The contraction phase will come when Altera looks at the large support costs and decides that the designers who bet on the less popular processor will need to look somewhere else for continued support... Check back in 2 years to see which processor gets the axe. Any bets on MIPS?

Looks like Xilinx has also announced a Cortex A9 based product http://www.xilinx.com/technology/roadmap/processing-platform.htm @ 28nm process node.

It's awesome news and I agree with Kiran's view of providing more reference design solution by Altera to estimate the performance. I am bit skeptical about the configurable soft core move in addition to their own Nios-II. Hardened Cortex A9 is good move. Unfortunately, soft processor cores implemented using FPGAs typically have higher power consumption and decreased performance compared with hard-core processors. Does Altera has any plan and solution to alleviate the performance and power overhead ? Designer can potentially use hardware/software partitioning to increase software performance while decreasing energy. However, hardware/software partitioning requires a special compiler. Does Altera new Q-II tool provide any solution for HW/SW partitioning approach ?

Good move by Altera to work along with the major processor core vendors to integrate them along with their FPGA into a single chip. This will definitely ease the real estate of the PCB and also can provide many benefits for industrial applications. Altera should provide lot of reference solutions based on these new chips to unleash the power of such integrated offerinigs to the customers.

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.
