Lattice Announces Promotional Pricing for iCEblink40 Evaluation Kits

New iCEblink40 Evaluation Kits Accelerate Application Development for Low Cost, Low Power Lattice iCE40 mobileFPGA Family

HILLSBORO, OR--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced promotional pricing for its recently released iCEblink40 Evaluation Kits. The iCE40™ mobileFPGA™ family, fabricated on non-volatile 40nm technology, is optimized for consumer and mobile applications that require low cost, low power and small footprint programmable logic devices.

Easy to Use Evaluation Kits
With two new iCEblink™ Evaluation Kits, engineers can easily evaluate and adopt non-volatile iCE40 technology. The iCEblink40-HX (High Performance) Evaluation Kit comes with an iCE40HX1K-VQ100 device (72 user I/Os) and the iCEblink40-LP (Low Power) Evaluation Kit comes with an iCE40LP1K-QN84 device (67 user I/Os). Both devices offer 1280 logic look up tables and 64K bits of on-chip memory. The USB-powered iCEblink40 Evaluation Kits include features such as 1Mbit of SPI Flash memory, capacitive touch buttons, LEDs and access to all user I/Os. The free iCEcube2™ development tool controls programming, accesses virtual I/O functions and runs the included demos.

Pricing and Availability
Both the iCEblink40-HX1K and iCEblink40-LP1K Evaluation Kits are available at a promotional price of $19 for immediate purchase on Lattice's website. This limited time promotional price will be valid through October 31, 2012. More information on the iCEblink40-HX1K kit is available here; more information on the iCEblink40-LP1K kit is available here. More information on the iCE40 mobileFPGA family is available here.

About the iCE40 mobileFPGA Family
Designers of handheld, battery-based consumer products have long awaited a programmable logic solution that delivers design flexibility and fast time to market benefits coupled with features that address their power, logic capacity, cost and small form factor requirements. This solution is now provided by Lattice's ultra-low power iCE40 mobileFPGA devices. Utilizing the mobileFPGA platform, mobile designers can quickly bring new features and custom functionality to market.

The iCE40 mobileFPGA family includes the HX-Series (High Performance) and the LP-Series (Low Power) devices, targeting tablets and smartphones, respectively. Fabricated on a 40nm low power standard CMOS process, the HX and LP devices provide twice the logic capacity of previous iCE65 devices.

The low cost, low power HX-Series targets tablets and provides support for sensor management, high-speed custom connectivity and tablet resolution, HD video and imaging. Featuring ultra-low power and ultra-small footprints (the industry's first 2.5 x 2.5mm micro plastic BGA), the LP-Series is the ideal application processor companion chip solution for smartphone applications, providing support for sensor management, high-speed custom connectivity and convergence of HD video and imaging. Supporting a broad range of tablets and smartphones, the HX and LP devices range from 384 to 8K logic cells.
