    ALTR @ MS 2/25 12:45,,,So we gain quite a bit of competitive advantage doing that.

    No, in fact, because we're -- the significance of being 3 nodes ahead is when you compare the size of us currently say a 28-nanometer FPGA to a 90-nanometer ASIC, they're almost identical in size. So we don't have a cost disadvantage anymore. When we're 4 nodes ahead, the size of a, say 20-nanometer FPGA to a 90-nanometer ASIC, the size of the FPGA would actually be smaller so we'd have a cost advantage. And because it's smaller we'd even have -- further mitigate the power disadvantage still being a general-purpose device.

    Okay. So you asked me questions and this just happened to work out this way. So we just had a press announcement about 5 minutes ago. Honestly, we didn't plan it this way. I knew I'd be onstage but only until -- only last week. So we had a major announcement today that we'll be building our next generation high-performance FPGA at 14 nanometers with Intel. So obviously, we're going to be at breakthrough levels of performance and power efficiencies. Intel's product at 14 uses their tri-gate technology, which is their second generation of FinFET technology. So we gain quite a bit of competitive advantage doing that. We still are going to be building a 20-nanometer plainer device with TSMC, but we will also have this 14-nanometer device.

    • Obviously they don't want to #$%$ off TSMC but that's pretty blunt - and high end FPGA are NOT low margin business
