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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & 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? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
