Tight Schedule Demanded Immediate Response from Lattice
HILLSBORO, OR - JUNE 27, 2005 - Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced that Talijon Engineering has delivered a turnkey hardware solution for a security product that will be used to monitor internet traffic. Talijon provided its customer with three Lattice intellectual property (IP) cores within a specialized wrapper and custom 1U hardware using a LatticeEC FPGA on the main controller board and an ispPAC Power Manager on the power board.
"This was a very challenging project,” said Len Shimoon, one of three founders of Talijon. “We were working with a software-only company that needed Talijon to provide a comprehensive hardware solution. So not only were we facing formidable hardware requirements, but the schedule was extremely tight. In fact, we needed solutions for the 1U box in record time. As a result, we not only had to evaluate the devices, but also consider vendor responsiveness and product availability. Lattice made our decision pretty easy. The LatticeEC FPGA’s DDR support, IP offering and large number of cells at an attractive price impressed us. And, thanks to the exceptional efforts of the local Lattice representatives, we were able to obtain the devices within a very short time.” Shimoon concluded.
Lattice vice president of corporate marketing Stan Kopec said, “Lattice is unique among programmable logic vendors because we apply the benefits of programmability not only to digital devices such as our CPLDs and FPGAs, but to our analog and mixed-signal products as well, such as our power management and clock generator devices. Our customers are frequently able to combine significant functionality in very compact areas using Lattice products.”
About the LatticeECP-DSP and LatticeEC FPGA Families
The LatticeECP-DSP and LatticeEC FPGA device families are architected to provide the most optimized feature sets combined with the lowest total solution costs of any FPGAs. The new LatticeECP-DSP products, targeted for high-performance DSP applications, provide up to a 50% performance and 75% logic utilization improvement over other low cost solutions when implementing common DSP functions. The LatticeEC FPGA product family, targeted for general-purpose FPGA applications, is a precise and targeted response to the market’s explosive demand for low cost, architecturally streamlined logic solutions. Through advanced 130nm silicon technology, an optimized architecture and proprietary circuit design, the new Lattice devices lower total solution costs by up to 30% to 50% compared with existing FPGA solutions, and are expected to broaden the adoption of FPGAs within the $20 billion ASIC marketplace.
About the Lattice ispPAC Power Manager Devices
