Lattice Semiconductor Corporation is offering low power, high speed, and small form-factor versions of their LatticeECP3 FPGA devices. The new packaging helps engineers create power and space limited applications in professional cameras, surveillance cameras, medical imaging, video communication, and small-form-factor wireline and wireless appliances. Prices for the LatticeECP3-17K Mini Device in 328csBGA package start at $4.95 (in 500K unit volume). Delivery will be in the fourth quarter of 2013.
LatticeECP3 Low Power Devices with SERDES and DDR3 Memory Interface
The new Low Power FPGAs consume 40% lower static power compared to the standard LatticeECP3 devices. This results in up to 30% lower total power consumption compared to the competing devices in the mid-range FPGA category. Lattice Semiconductor is offering Low Power versions for each member of the LatticeECP3 FPGA family. It includes Low Power versions for each existing speed grade (-6L, -7L, -8L) and for both commercial and industrial temperature grades. The LatticeECP3 Low Power devices are the industry’s lowest power mid-range FPGAs with high-quality 3.2G SERDES and high-speed DDR3 memory interface. They empower designers to take the flexibility of FPGAs to power-budget limited professional consumer, communication, and video applications.
LatticeECP3 High Speed FPGAs for Complex Designs
The High Speed devices are 10% faster than the current highest speed-grade (-8) LatticeECP3 FPGAs. The High Speed parts (-9) are available for the four members of the LatticeECP3 FPGA family (35K, 70K, 95K, and 150K LUT FPGAS) in both commercial and industrial temperature grades. These premium high-speed devices will enable designers to route complex designs, where a specific application or critical path has a time dependent requirement that cannot be facilitated by the standard devices.
LatticeECP3 Mini FPGA with SERDES and DDR3 Interface
The LatticeECP3 Mini is the industry’s smallest FPGA with high-speed 3.2 G SERDES and 800 Mbps DDR3 memory interface. The 10mmx10mm device with 17K LUTs and 116 user input/output is 66% smaller than the current LatticeECP3 FPGA of the same logic density. The Mini FPGA with SERDES is ideal for space-limited applications that need to process high-speed Video and Internet data. The LatticeECP3 Mini FPGAs are available in all three speed grades (-6, -7, -8), two power grades (Standard and Low-Power) and both temperature grades (commercial and industrial). These Mini FPGAs will allow designers across industries to build size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP&-C) constrained embedded systems.
