Anyone taking bets on whether Applied's first silicon works? Results should be in about the same time as the Super Bowl.

All of that 90mins wasting my time to show a crappy FPGA board. Its been a year since they made a big news all over the place. Where is my silicon? Looks like Applied Micro is run by a bunch of marketing guys. All flash, No substance. Just vaporware. Window dressing a losing company for a nice sale and some $$$. AMCC and AMD are rushing to be bought. Lets see who gets hitched first

Well, they seem to be hitting all the right applications and if they do indeed have it working on the design then it is commendable. Better than anything other 64b ARM guys have shown so far. They do need to demonstrate working silicon to back their claims of being the first to have a 64b implementation.

Rick, just saw all the picture - is that a dell chassis? Did they claim a design win at dell?

It is an existing Dell chassis, and two low level Dell sales reps were at the event. Applied and Dell worked together on the board reference design which fits into the Dell chassis and looks like it might conform to the Facebook Open Compute Project specs--though Applied would not say if it does. However, this is not a win at Dell. Applied has no working SoCs yet. No one will design in a chip that is only running in an FPGA simulation--Applied's current situation.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
