Thank you guys for all the info! About the programing language, for the best possible performance should we use native language or C/C++? Thank you again.

That is like designing a rally car and asking if for best perfomance you should use racing slicks....

Let your engineers use whichever tool works for them - but it won't be C++!

The economies of scale don't kick in until you are using a few thousand devices a month and your design is fully fixed, there are some FPGA families which are designed to have a slightly easier path to full asic implementation.

The other thing to consider is that if your design is subject to change then an FPGA is far easier to deal with than respinning an asic
