Lattice ECP3 Low Power Devices with SERDES/DDR3 Memory

LatticeECP3 Low Power - Expect Cool Things Image

The new Low Power FPGAs consume 40% lower static power compared to the standard LatticeECP3 devices. This results in up to 30% lower total power consumption compared to the competing devices in the mid-range FPGA category.

Lattice Semiconductor is offering Low Power versions for each member of the LatticeECP3 FPGA family. It includes Low Power versions for each existing speed grade (-6L, -7L, -8L) and for both ‘Commercial’ and ‘Industrial’ temperature grades.

 

Applications

The new Low Power devices are industry’s lowest power mid-range FPGAs with high-quality 3.2G SERDES, high-speed DDR3 memory interface, and up to 320 full-fledged DSP slices. The LatticeECP3 FPGAs also feature superior simultaneously-switching-output and ESD characteristics. The Low Power devices empower designers to take the flexibility of FPGAs to power-budget limited professional consumer, cameras, portable displays, and wireless & wireline communication applications.
