re: Achronix sampling first Intel-built FPGAs

As transistor size goes deeper & PVT issues dramatically increases, asynchronous design techniques become more and more appealing. Intel knows that, and not only shows its interest throughout the special relation with Achronix. Few years ago, Intel acquired Fulcrum Micro, maybe the first company that succesfully introduced in the market an asynchronous logic based device. But the really interesting point is that Achronix doesn't talk about its wonderful asynchronous architecture anymore... what's all this recent secrecy about? What are Intel real intentions with Achronix??

In some sense, Achronix is the property of Intel. Not really an inependent company and a direct competitor of Xilinx or Altera.

Anytime new chip is released and all the focus is marketing technology “22nm”, "finfet",etc. versus what the chip is delivering (i.e. chip power / chip performance etc. ) highlights there is a problem. Physical demand for chip is weak. Product level specs are not that competitive with FPGA/ASIC and Acronix marking is pushing risking IP model versus selling chips. that is the real story
