You will have to ask the manufacturer what "success" means. For a huge
investment programme they will need some convincing that there will be
enough sales.

You could ask Ian Page to comment (that's an invitation, Ian, having seen
that you read this group) on how hard it was to convince anyone to
manufacture his new FPGA design (based on content-addressable memory).
