Give credit where credit is due!  They bought Actel!  It has been around for years, it's just that the blithering idiots in the tech media did not bother reviewing it!

@Rob – Yes energy consumptions on Flash memory are much lower than energy used to power a hard disk. Hard disks have physical components such as the disk and the platter which needs power to fetch the data.

FPGAs always need compact cost efficient storage, I think it's a good idea to have Flash memory to store the data as it could be accessed at a great speed and uses less power.

Looks like Microsemi hit the sweet spot here with improvements in energy consumption and security. Those are the hot buttons these days.
