Lattice Controller Supports Qualcomm Quick Charge

Flexible Charging Controller Supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 

Joint Solution Provides Fast Time to Market

Portland, OR – January 6, 2016 – Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC), the leading provider of customizable smart connectivity solutions, today announced that the company’s flexible charging controller family, the LIF-UC™ family, supports the Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ standard. Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0 technologies are products of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated. Faster charging is becoming increasingly important as more powerful devices are released to the market. To support this, Qualcomm Technologies’ Power Management ICs (PMICs) have optimized charging architectures within mobile devices by taking advantage of the Quick Charge technologies.

Lattice delivers ICs for power adapters to ensure proper communication with the PMIC used in mobile devices. The LIF-UC device family offers flexible programming to enable customers to differentiate and future proof their designs. By updating firmware for Lattice solutions, engineers can quickly move from different generations of charging specifications, including Quick Charge, Battery Charging and Power Delivery, over standards such as USB Type-C.

“As a result of our relationship with Qualcomm Technologies, we can bring customers a complete, end-to-end solution that leads to a quicker time to market,” said C.H. Chee, senior director of consumer marketing at Lattice Semiconductor. “This joint solution is optimized for flexibility in supporting multiple charging profiles, so that one charger can power today and tomorrow’s mobile devices.”

Lattice’s programmable charging controller is fully compliant with the USB Power Delivery v2.0 specification and when combined with Qualcomm Technologies’ Quick Charge technology, it provides a flexible solution that reduces the time required to recharge batteries in mobile devices. Today there are Quick Charge 2.0 enabled smartphones, tablets, and wall adapters available from different manufacturers around the world. Quick Charge 3.0 is designed to charge devices up to four times faster than conventional technologies.
