Lattice's New iCE40 Ultra Family Speeds Customization of 'Killer' Features for 
Mobile Devices 
Critical IP Enables Market-Winning Functionality in the Smallest
Footprint With 75% Lower Power 
HILLSBORO, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 07/15/14 --  Lattice Semiconductor
Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC), the leader in ultra-low power, small form
factor, customizable solutions, today introduced the iCE40 Ultra(TM)
family, delivering unsurpassed integration of emerging infrared
remote, barcode, touch, user identification, and pedometer functions
with ample customization capabilities for makers of mobile consumer
devices to quickly implement 'killer' features that differentiate
their products.  
iCE40 Ultra FPGAs deliver 5x more functionality at 30% smaller size
than competing solutions. Lattice has also reduced power by 75% over
previous devices. Combined, these enable designers to give their
systems more compact form factors and longer battery life.  
Lattice has shipped hundreds of millions of iCE40(TM) FPGAs since
their introduction in 2012, providing the fastest time to market for
a diversity of capabilities in smartphones, tablets, wearables and
other mobile devices.  
"Lattice's new iCE40 Ultra family further frees designers to
customize any way they want in order to win big in their markets by
implementing amazing features their customers can't live without,"
said Lattice Semiconductor President and CEO Darin Billerbeck.  
The iCE40 Ultra family integrates LED drivers, multipliers and
accumulators, serial interfaces and a whole host more of hardened IP.
This ASSP-like integration reduces system power and speeds
implementation so designers can spend more time on the customization. 
With the smallest iCE40 Ultra device in a WLCS (wafer level chip
scale) package measuring just 1.7mm x 2.1 mm x 0.45 mm, no other
solution on the market delivers so much capability and flexibility at
low power in such a small package. 
iCE40 Ultra family devices are available from Lattice now. Software
support is available in the Lattice iCECube2(TM) tool. For more
