Programmable devices like CPLDs and FPGAs offer automotive systems; design flexibility and extended product availability at a very low price.
The consumer electronics market encompasses a broad range of products including flat panel displays, DVD players and recorders, digital cameras and camcorders, gaming consoles, set-top boxes, and smart handheld devices. Driven by rapidly changing market requirements, these products are improved continually with changing feature sets and capabilities.
System designers in this market are increasingly using programmable logic devices in their systems as they are faced with time-to-market pressures and design flexibility requirements that cannot be addressed by ASICs and ASSPs. Using Lattice's low-cost programmable logic solutions, designers can now introduce several versions of the same product with very short development cycles and make upgrades to any existing products in the field with low risk.
Industrial Market segment is currently evolving at an accelerated pace while packing more user-friendly features in a smaller area, at a lower cost. Coupled with this, there have been a number of standards with no clear winner, resulting in reduced availability of standard silicon solutions (ASSP). Programmable solutions are one of the key enablers to meet these reduced time-to-market and cost demands.
Lattice Semiconductor has focused on extending the advantages of in-system programmability both in analog and digital electronics, providing unique value to our industrial electronics customers.
