I like this comment:

…The main issue with the technology at the moment is that it is very hard to program. Mark Parsons, commercial director of the center, which co-developed Maxwell, acknowledged: “It’s still difficult for commercial use.”

But Parsons added once this problem is cracked–in the next two to three years–FPGA tech could really take off.
