re: Microsemi's next-gen digital ICs and SoC FPGAs to use Intel's foundry services

Problem is, is Intel in for the long term or is just yet another one of their fad's/trials and they'll drop it like a hot potato like they have in the past (or when their management team changes)?

Thanks a lot for this in-depth review!! I'm not sure what the real Intel "master plot" is, but from some perspective, it seems that they are giving priority to FPGA foundry deals (4 deals are related with FPGAs from a total of 5 agreements). The "non-FPGA" foundry deal is signed with Netronome, a company specializing in the design of network flow processors. This summed with Intel previous absortion of Fulcrum Micro, now an Intel division, makes me think that they are interested in become a major player in the next-gen intelligent network/comm infrastructure -- a market where high-end FPGAs are mainstream.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
