"many more gadgets will surely be built with FPGAs" /img/time-for-fpga.png

Three and a half years ago, I explained why it’s time to bring FPGAs to the masses. One year later, I wrote that this is the time for European microprocessors and FPGAs.. And guess what I just read today?

  1. “in the future, programming multicore processors and configuring FPGAs could reach parity in terms of the effort required. Should that come to pass, many more gadgets will surely be built with FPGAs.”
  2. “when open-hardware companies switch to using FPGAs instead of CPUs… Others will then be free to reconfigure the circuitry, down to individual gates inside the FPGA. So the open-hardware movement could penetrate microelectronic design to a very deep level.”

Thank you in advance for reading why here, and then let me know what you think.
