Hi Neil!

No, it has nothing to do with expertise, just economics. For large volume products FPGAs are much more expensive. Also most companys are not interested in selling products that last, they would rather sell us a new completely new mainboard/STB/NC/etc. every two years. But they still use FPGAs for prototyping. Once they are confident that their design works, they then give it to a chip manufacturer for mass-production.
