Hmmm...  Did he die-bond, wire-bond, and package the FPGA or just solder it onto the board?  Not so impressive if it's the latter.  Still, the link to the website shows microwave devices being bonded in hybrid packages to repair mixers in spectrum analyzers - now that's impressive!Jim FordSent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone
