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

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

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??

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
