I'm going to ask the folks from the FPGA companies to comment on this technology

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...

Sounds fishy to me -- fishy as in "Poisson d'Avril"! 8-)

"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 humor and thank you that you took our joke. yours sincerely, DCD Team" Straight from the Digital Core Design Website (http://www.dcd.pl/) This was a joke. In my opinion a bad one :P

I thought it was pretty clever actually -- before I posted it I did a search and couldn't find anyone else who had come up with anything similar. I still remember the days of the classic "Write-Only Memory (WOM)" and the "Black Noise Generator"

why you think it was bad? All news dedicated to 1st of April sounds fishy ;]

I read an article in Discover Magazine years and years ago about small rodents that lived in the antarctic and burrowed through the ice and snow using a hotspot on their heads to melt it away. They were supposed to be small but incredibly vicious. The article suggested that large numbers of these creatures may have been responsible for the disappearance of some explorers. They showed pictures and everything It was only last year that I discovered that it was an April's Fool Day spoof... Now my mind is churning for something I can come up with myself for next year ... I have a cunning plan ...

I was also excited with this but then I came to the conclusion that it was nothing more than... ???tap?????! ("April's First Day" in Greek) Nice spoof by the way. Cheers, Nikos Kavvadias

99.13% of the speed of light. Switching at relativistic speeds. Too bad they did not unveil the revolutionary networking technology they are working on for the military. Based on wormhole tunelling neutrinos, this can achieve petabytes per second, with virtually zero delay. - Jonny

Graphene is a wonderfull material, it has a great use for medicine for measuring impedance changes in liquids (ie. finding out if someone is a diabethic). It is a true material of the future.
