This might also be related to acquiring patents that allow ICs to contain programmabe logic. ?Xilinx and Altera have owned this area and it was difficult for any other silicon platforms to be created. ?If Intel does acquire, they will also be able to create silicon platforms with their IP surrounded with some programmable logic. ?This could significantly reduce cost for product developers, accelerate product development in new markets that can be turbulent and increase protection of Intel's IP. ?Might be an interesting play buy needs execution.

The deal will not do any good to Intel since many of Altera customers will shy away from sharing their info with a competitive and would prefer to move their business to Xlinx.
Also the overall FPGA market size hasn't grown by much for the last several years. The impact on Intel's revenue will be minimal.
