Altera has announced its 28nm FPGA/ASIC technology. What I am excited about this technology is that its PIN compatibility between the HardCopy (Hybrid of ASIC and FPGA) and its Spartan FPGA chips. This will allow successful designs to be reproduced in volumes at low cost. Also, it has a few killer hard IP built in. Check out Altera announcement :
