LatticeXP2 FPGA Makes EDN's Hot 100 List

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) announced that EDN magazine has selected the LatticeXP2(TM) family of non-volatile FPGAs as a 2007 “Hot 100″ product. Recognition as a Hot 100 product is particularly coveted because there is no nomination process: instead, EDN’s editors select those products that in their judgment are particularly noteworthy.

“We are pleased that EDN has chosen to designate our non-volatile LatticeXP2 FPGA family as a Hot 100 product,” said Stan Kopec, Lattice corporate vice president of marketing. “Designers have responded enthusiastically to both our LatticeXP(TM) and LatticeXP2 Flash-based FPGA families, with thousands of cumulative design-ins worldwide. In contrast to competitive stacked die devices, our LatticeXP2 FPGAs offer the benefits of true non-volatility because they combine Flash and SRAM on a single die. This integrated approach provides superior instant-on capability and security, two of the primary advantages of non-volatile technology. With enhanced features and lower prices, our LatticeXP2 devices continue to expand the use of non-volatile FPGA technology and accelerate the growth of this increasingly important segment of the FPGA market.”

About the LatticeXP2 FPGA Family
The LatticeXP2 family combines a Look-up Table (LUT)-based FPGA fabric with Flash non-volatile cells on a 90nm process technology, in an architecture called flexiFLASH(TM). The flexiFLASH approach provides benefits such as instant-on operation, a small footprint, on-chip storage with FlashBAK(TM) embedded block memories, serial TAG memory and the highest design security. LatticeXP2 devices also support live updates with Lattice’s unique TransFR(TM) technology, 128-bit AES design encryption and dual-boot technologies. The family provides five devices ranging between 5K and 40K LUTs in a wide variety of packages.
