Baysand Claims that they can deliver Metal Programmable Gate Arrays at the same density, lower power and same cost as ASIC. In addition for logic changes their turn around time is 1-3 months and cost of initial design is way less than FPGA. I personally believe they would be better off as a FPGA replacement.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
