Lattice expands ECP5 FPGA range for smart connectivity solutions

1 min read

Lattice Semiconductor has expanded its ECP5 range of low power, small form factor connectivity and acceleration FPGAs.The additions are said to be pin compatible with ECP5 FPGAs and enable OEMs to update their designs to meet evolving interface requirements in the industrial, communications and consumer markets.

“Our ECP5 FPGA family has proven to be the ideal solution to address the flexible connectivity needs in applications where lower power, smaller form factor and lower cost are critical requirements,” said Deepak Boppana, director of product marketing at Lattice Semiconductor.“The new ECP5-5G and ECP5 12K devices will enable our customers to continue taking advantage of these differentiated features, while accelerating time-to-market of their next-generation designs.”

Lattice’s ECP5-5G range is claimed to be the only FPGA product line that supports 5G SERDES and up to 85K LUTs in a 10 x 10mm package.The ECP5-5G devices support multiple 5G protocols including PCI Express Gen 2.0, CPRI, and JESD204B.This range is said to enable connectivity to ASICs and ASSPs in applications including cameras, displays, gaming platforms, small cells and low-end routers.Resources including software, device samples, soft IP and hardware boards are available upon request.

The ECP5 12K device offers programmable IO support for interface bridging functions including LVDS, MIPI and LPDDR3.The device is claimed to provide a cost optimised mix of logic, memory and DSP resources for additional pre and post processing in applications such as LED controllers, machine vision, motor control and more.
