Lattice Semiconductor (NASDAQ: LSCC) will demonstrate a wide range of complete FPGA-based design solutions, including PCI Express, SMPTE video and its LatticeMico32(tm) embedded RISC microprocessor running the uClinux Real Time Operating System (RTOS), at the Embedded World Conference and Exhibition, February 26-28, in Nürnberg, Germany. The Lattice exhibit is located in Hall 12, Stand 350.
Lattice will provide live demonstrations of its PCI Express endpoint capabilities running on its evaluation board. The board utilizes a soft PCI Express core (available in either x1 or x4 configurations) programmed into a LatticeECP2M(tm) low cost FPGA with on-chip 3.125Gbps SERDES blocks. LatticeECP2M devices provide the only FPGA-based PCI Express solution priced below $10.00 in high volume.
Lattice also will demonstrate its SMPTE capabilities using the LatticeECP2M devices. The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) has defined the Serial Digital Interface (SDI) family of standards. These standards define the physical interface and related circuitry needed to transport uncompressed digital video over 75-ohm coax cable.
In addition, Lattice will showcase its implementation of the uClinux OS using a LatticeMico32 evaluation board. The LatticeMico32 core is Lattice’s 32-bit embedded RISC soft microprocessor, available to customers through a unique open source license agreement. The LatticeMico32 processor also is supported by Micrium’s µC/OS-II and the TOPPERS µITRON operating systems.
