CertusPro-NX FPGAs optimised for automotive applications

1 min read

Lattice Semiconductor has announced that it has optimised its general-purpose Lattice CertusPro-NX FPGA family for Automotive and extended temperature applications.

By expanding its portfolio of Automotive products, these new devices combine automotive-grade features and AEC-Q100 qualification with the power efficiency, performance, and small form factor found in all Lattice CertusPro-NX FPGAs.

In addition, with support for LPDDR4 external memory, they also enable long term projected availability for applications like display processing and bridging for infotainment systems, in-vehicle networking, and camera processing / sensor bridging in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

“CertusPro-NX FPGAs are designed to enable customer innovation in a wide range of applications from 5G, machine vision, Edge processing, and more,” said Jay Aggarwal, Director of Product Marketing at Lattice Semiconductor. “With CertusPro-NX Automotive FPGAs, we are delivering a leadership low power, high bandwidth, and high reliability platform for car manufacturers to develop new mission-critical automotive systems.”

Built on the Lattice Nexus platform, key features of CertusPro-NX Automotive FPGAs include:

  • Up to 4X lower power compared to similar competing FPGAs
  • Higher performance interfaces
  • Up to 2X the total SERDES bandwidth compared to similar competing FPGAs
  • Up to 8.1 Gbps SERDES support
  • Fast device configuration under 30 ms
  • Only FPGA in class with LPDDR4 external memory support
  • Highest reliability and device security
  • Up to 100X lower soft error rate compared to similar competing FPGAs
  • Integrated bitstream security for added reliability
  • Class-leading compact form factor
  • Up to 6.5X smaller than competing devices with SERDES enables efficient Automotive designs
  • Easy-to-use design software support
  • Lattice Radiant® software tool support helps simplify and accelerate automotive system design
  • Automotive-grade versions of CertusPro-NX FPGAs are now sampling with select customers.
