Lattice Semiconductor has shipped 75 million
Lattice Semiconductor Corporation has announced it has
shipped more than 75 million MachXO PLDs (programmable logic
devices) since their introduction.
The MachXO PLD finds its use in broad range of low-density
applications that require general purpose I/O expansion,
interface bridging and power-up management functions. The
MachXO PLD family provides distributed and embedded memory,
built-in PLLs, high performance LVDS I/O, remote field upgrade
(TransFR technology) and a low power sleep mode, all in
a single device, as per Lattice.
"The widespread adoption of the MachXO PLD family
in system and consumer applications reflects our customers'
enthusiastic acceptance of low cost, low power, non-volatile
PLDs to quickly bring their products to rapidly evolving
markets," said Shakeel Peera, Lattice Director of Marketing
for Silicon & Solutions. "The rate of MachXO PLD
device shipments has grown to more than 25 million units
per year to a variety of end markets, including consumer,
communications, computing, industrial and medical."
Lattice says the MachXO2 PLD family delivers a 3X increase
in logic density, a 10X increase in embedded memory and
more than a 100X reduction in static power, all at significantly
lower cost. In addition, MachXO2 PLDs include hardened implementations
of commonly used functions such as User Flash Memory (UFM),
I2C, SPI and timer/counter.
Lattice is providing 65 popular reference designs and the
MachXO Mini Development Kit are available for prototyping
cost sensitive low-density applications.
