Well, there’s two wacky new series of devices.

FPGAs considered ARM-full

[Xilinx](http://www.xilinx.com) and [Altera](http://www.altera.com) have [both](http://press.xilinx.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=212763&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1534041&highlight=) [announced](http://www.altera.com/corporate/news_room/releases/2011/products/nr-soc-fpga.html) FPGAs with hard [ARM](http://www.arm.com) processors on them. Xilinx have even got a new product famliy name (Zynq) for them.
