Submission + - FTL Neutrinos because of FPGA? (zorinaq.com)

cobrausn writes: However if I must be dubious about one element, it would be this FPGA-based platform, which sits at the Gran Sasso site, processing the trigger and clock signals. Given the information released publicly, (1) it is the most complex device in the timing chain, (2) contrary to other timing equipment which is off-the-shelf, this system appears to be a custom design of which no precise details were given, and (3) as Dario Autiero said himself, it is rare that particle physicists need such accurate time, which makes me think they may have overlooked certain details when designing it.
