FCCM hold such prediction every year. It's funny how optimistic is the FPGA community!

@DrFPGA: Might be a good topic for an end of the year blog/discussion.

I agree -- make it so, number one!

Might be a good topic for an end of the year blog/discussion. What will FPGAs be like in 10 years (or will they have evolved into something completely different)?

@DrFPGA: So in 10 years or so will each of the logic cells in an FPGA also have a different IP (or the IoT equivalent) address?


I'm scared to think -- if you look at th estate of FPGA technology 10 years ago, it was pretty darned impressive, but nothing like what we have today, and back then I woudl never have guessed how far we would have progressed by now .... goodness only knows what will happen in the next 10 years...

@BOMBOVA: ...i will be going to DesignCon,  in San Jose...

I'm not sure if I'll make DesignCon -- but I'll certainly be at EE Live!

i am going to guess 20, towards a hundred million,   transistor,  addressable features.    which is still mind boggling,

i consider these devices so complex,    in set up time, to get a working system to market,  that i will need perhaps a team of twenty people,   just in this expertise alone,   ,  there may be a product  in RF, analysis, that can wait out a development of 18 months.   but i am sure not most.      Perhaps i can be pointed to a design team,  that will handle all of this, for a fee,  and keep my designs safe from copying.    the word boggle,  really is put to good use here,     i will be going to DesignCon,  in San Jose,  and will be looking forward to visiting the vendors .   When i got 12,000 gates,  working at a GigaHertz,  i thought , i had acomplished something.   but now, i feel like an infant again,   perhaps were all zero 'ed out to starting fresh.    ,  i looked at the vendor 's tools,  kit boards,   the price is not for the faint of heart.    you could loose your life in this stuff,    but haven't most of us reading this,   done so.      this is so glue, for a master CPU,  or GPU,  if you set out to do it.  , Cheers all ,  from Thomas GX, in Vancouver Canada,     keep your boards clean and your circuts stright,  see you all in San Jose, end of Jan.

I hear from Xilinx that there are ~20 billion transistors (give or take a handful) in the biggest 20nm All Probrammable 3D IC.

My brain is truly boggled.

How many transistors?

I wonder how many transistors there are on this little scamp (the one with 4.4 million logic cells)?
