Update: Lattice Semiconductor to Acquire SiliconBlue (Dec 09, 2011)
- “Los Angeles” targets sensor management and processor port expansion
- “San Francisco” targets video/memory management
- 40LP process enables a broad spectrum of small footprint devices
SANTA CLARA, Calif.-- April 4, 2011--SiliconBlue® Technologies, the leader in Custom Mobile Device™ solutions for handheld applications unveiled its mobileFPGA™ platform device roadmap utilizing TSMC’s leading edge 40nm low power standard CMOS process. By capitalizing on Moore’s Law, the new mobileFPGA platform families will not only offer reduced power and 30-50% increased performance, but as an industry first, will offer comprehensive product families comprised of over 15 new devices, all with footprints smaller than 50 mm2.

“Los Angeles” incorporates advanced interface support for emerging standards such as SLIMbus and USB 2.0-based HSIC and ULPI, targeting sensor management and port expansion requirements that are being driven by the explosion of sensors and other peripherals in handheld applications. “San Francisco” incorporates 1080p support with HDMI and MIPI interfaces. It has been designed for video, multi-display, and high-bandwidth memory interface applications, targeting the convergence of video and image content being simultaneously viewed on home and handheld devices.
“We have created two new distinct families that target the two areas where smartphones and other handhelds differentiate,” said Kapil Shankar, CEO of SiliconBlue. “These devices will be available for designs this year, in time to support the explosion in new handheld products.”
More details regarding SiliconBlue’s 40nm-based mobileFPGA devices will be announced in 2Q2011.
