Lattice Unveils Education Alliance Resource Network

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) launched the Lattice Education Alliance Resource Network (LEARN). The LEARN program formalizes relationships among Lattice and partner companies that specialize in providing technical training services. Through the LEARN program, Lattice customers will be trained in a breadth of disciplines ranging from programmable logic design to the specific design issues associated with Lattice’s expanding portfolio of leading edge programmable logic devices and services.

By selecting independent firms that specialize in programmable logic design training, Lattice is able to match each of its partner’s specific expertise and experience with the specific training requirements of Lattice’s customers. Lattice expects to rapidly enlist partners in all the major global markets. Three partnerships already have been forged, with charter member companies TM Associates, Inc. in the United States, eVision Systems GmbH in Germany and Silicon Micro Systems of India joining the LEARN network.

“Our new FPGA products and software design tools have been received enthusiastically in the global marketplace, and so our need for partners that can help us train our global customer base continues to grow,” said Jock Tomlinson, Lattice vice president of Field Applications Engineering. “It is essential that our customers receive the highest quality training from partners with superior technical training experience and expertise in programmable silicon, design entry and EDA tools.”
