Lattice Introduces New Automotive Grade FPGAs to Accelerate Affordable 
The World's Smallest Automotive Qualified FPGA With SERDES Enables
Designers to Rethink the Automobile to Improve Fuel Efficiency,
Safety, and Access to Entertainment 
HILLSBORO, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/13 --   Lattice Semiconductor
Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced the introduction of
AEC-Q100-certified "Lattice Automotive (LA)" devices in its
award-winning LatticeECP3(TM) FPGA family. The six new devices
leverage Lattice's expertise in low power, small size, and cost
optimized FPGAs to deliver programmable technology that can be used
for all classes of automobile as well as automotive aftermarket
"Vehicle designers want to differentiate by enabling safety and
electronic features found in luxury cars to a universe of affordable
automobiles," said Gordon Hands, Director of marketing for low
density products at Lattice. "This is limited by the availability of
cost effective devices to enable this deployment. LA-LatticeECP3
devices leverage our experience in the mobile consumer space to
deliver the programmable performance, small size, and low power
necessary to immediately deploy advanced automotive electronic
technologies that can be used in all cars."  
Technology to Enable Broad Deployment of Advanced Automotive
The compact automotive qualified LA-LatticeECP3 FPGA family provides
a versatile programmable platform that includes SERDES. The power
optimized SERDES uses half of the power of comparable multi-protocol
SERDES. The devices also includes powerful digital-signal processing,
high-density on-chip memory, programmable DDR3 memory interfaces, and
offers up to 35K look-up tables (LUTS). Moreover, the LatticeECP3
family includes up to six banks of configurable I/O and four 3Gbps
SERDES to efficiently link automotive based networks, components and
Delivered in packages as small as 10mm x 10mm, the LA-LatticeECP3
Automotive FPGA family allows designers to implement optimized driver
assistance systems such as the replacement of side mirrors with high
resolution camera systems. Lattice provides its HDR-60 Video Camera
Development Kit so engineers can easily develop solutions in areas
such as collision avoidance, driver assistance, infotainment and
telematics. In addition to providing increased safety the elimination
of mirrors improves automobile aerodynamics to dramatically increase
fuel efficiency.  
The range of solutions now possible using the LA-LatticeECP3 FPGA
family also includes cost effectively extending the number of sensors
throughout the automobile by enabling power efficient pre-processing
for a distributed system. These new devices also enable advanced
cloud based, high resolution infotainment systems and in-cabin
integration of mobile devices such as smartphones that can be
deployed throughout all classes of vehicles.

Lattice Diamond(R) Design Software
 Optimized for the company's
architecture, Lattice Diamond(R) v.2.2 software offers leading-edge
design and implementation tools optimized to allow automotive
electronic designers meet their power, size, and cost goals. Lattice
Diamond 2.2 software can be downloaded from: 
HDR-60 Video Camera Development Kit
 The HDR-60 development kit
allows designers to quickly prototype camera systems using a choice
of image sensors and various combinations of camera technologies. The
development kit also makes it easy to optimize image-processing code,
use Ethernet or HDMI interfaces to display images, drive lenses, or
add daughter boards. For more information please go to:
