Cheaper in reels though ;)

Who really needs 5 million logic cells and 10 MB of on chip RAM? I bet they only sell a few of these... well, by few I mean a few thousand tops. That would be enough to pay for the mask sets anyway. What do you think Digikey's cut is? It's not quite the depression era guy on the street corner selling apples for $10,000.

Reel of 3000, 230 million dollars, less a modest quantity discount. Worth hijacking a truck or maybe a 747 for.

The government loves such things. The other "big" market for large FPGAs is the hardware logic emulation business. They build emulators to simulate entire CPUs.

A "Peanuts" cartoon fifty something years ago had Lucy selling lemonade for $5/glass. Linus told her that she wasn't going to sell many glasses at that price. She replied, "At that price, I don't HAVE to sell many glasses.".

EUR &#2013266084;70.380 I assume that this is the continental style, i.e. 70 thousand, three hundred and eighty euro. Cheap at twice the price!

I was at a trade show maybe 8 years ago, and a guy had a booth selling logic emulators. Each board had I think 12 FPGAs that cost $3K each, and you could pack a lot of boards into one crate. -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc lunatic fringe electronics

I still can't believe that nothing has ever crashed, exploded, or sailed past Mars at 90,000 miles^Wkilometers/hour due to this stupidity... -- john, KE5FX

OH! I missed that one. Would make rather a big difference on the balance sheet
