"We are honored to receive this recognition from the Elektra Awards'
independent judges," said Brent Przybus, Lattice Senior Director of
Corporate and Product Marketing. "Our innovative, ultra-low density
iCE40 FPGAs continue to receive widespread recognition in the
industry and broad acceptance in the marketplace for their
versatility, low cost and low power. In fact, since December 2011
Lattice has shipped 15 million iCE FPGA devices, making this the
company's fastest shipping product of the past decade. The iCE40 FPGA
family is leading the way in opening new markets and applications for
FPGAs, including widespread adoption in consumer and mobile
electronic designs." 
About the iCE40 FPGA Family
 The iCE40 family of FPGAs is designed
for applications that have the most aggressive power, cost and
footprint requirements. Ideally architected for smartphones, tablets,
digital still cameras, and other space and power constrained systems,
the iCE40 family uses a highly cost optimized fabric. The iCE40 FPGA
family is an ideal choice for functions such 
as sensor management,
video and imaging, custom connectivity, memory/storage expansion and
glue logic.
