I just heard back from an unidentified underling for Lattice Semiconductor, speaking on condition of anonymity. The following is his (or her) direct quote:
“Well, it’s always something, isn’t it? Really, there’s only so much technology one can evaluate in any given day before one is just exhausted. So, while we can neither confirm nor deny any rumors linking grapheme-based FPGAs and Lattice, we can categorically state that we may or may not look into it further. Or not.”
Well, that seems to be fairly conclusive to me ... there's obviously a coverup going on ... what do you think?
I'm taking everything I read today, including the weather forecast, with a grain of low sodium salt.
Whan that Aprille with his shoures soote
The droghte 2 of Marche hath perced to the roote,
And bathed every veyne in swich licour,
Of which vertu engendred is the flour...
Happy April 1! If it's still on the market tomorrow I'll buy it.
I can understand the confusion and misinformation regarding the BYT-ON. It's still a pretty new technology. In fact, it's so new that I'm surprised they have it ready to ship. I've been expecting the company to first ship the BYT-ME version.
Here's what they say on the website:
No matter how you call it - Prima Aprilis, April Fools’ Day, All Fools’ Day, Aprilscherz, Jour du poisson d’avril or Hunt the gowk Day - thank you for your sense of humour and thank you that you took our joke.
yours sincerely, DCD Team
These guys do IPs not physical chips...

Straight from the Digital Core Design Website (http://www.dcd.pl/) This was a joke. In my opinion a bad one :P
