Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) introduced two small footprint packages for their ispMACH® 4000ZE CPLDs (complex programmable logic devices), making them ideal for use in high volume, handheld designs that demand ultra low power. The ispMACH 4064ZE device is available now in a 64-ball ucBGA (ultra chip scale BGA) package with a 4mm by 4mm footprint, and the ispMACH 4128ZE device is available in a 132-ball ucBGA package with a 6mm by 6mm footprint, which enable both devices to accommodate the very tight space constraints common with portable and handheld equipment. The new space-saving packages enable designers to use these ispMACH 4000ZE devices in a board space that is 36% smaller than previously possible.
Both the ispMACH 4064ZE device in the new 64-ball ucBGA package and the ispMACH 4128ZE device in the new 132-ball ucBGA package are now released for volume production and are immediately available. The rest of the packages in this product family are also shipping in volume. All ispMACH 4000ZE family package options are Pb-free and RoHS compliant. Pricing for the ispMACH 4064ZE device and the ispMACH 4128ZE device in their new packages is as low as $0.85 and $1.60, respectively, in the high-volume typically associated with handheld equipment.
