Lattice Diamond Design Software Named Finalist in Elektra Awards Competition

New Flagship Design Environment for Lattice FPGA Products Is Honored

HILLSBORO, OR--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -  Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced that an independent panel of judges has named the Lattice Diamond™ design software environment a finalist in Elektra 2010, the European Electronics Industry Awards competition.

"This highly sought-after recognition from the Elektra 2010 judges is very exciting," said Doug Hunter, Lattice Vice President of Corporate Marketing. "Lattice Diamond software is the new flagship design environment for Lattice FPGA products. Lattice Diamond software provides a complete set of powerful tools, efficient design flows and modern user interface that enables designers to more quickly target low power, cost sensitive FPGA applications."

Now in its eighth year and firmly established as an annual high point of the electronics industry, the Elektra Awards give the industry the opportunity to recognize the achievements of individuals and companies. The Awards ceremony is scheduled for December 9 at The Lancaster London Hotel.

About the Lattice Diamond Design Environment
FPGAs are increasingly being used in more cost sensitive, high volume applications, and designers need an easy to learn, flexible design environment for exploring different implementations to achieve their cost, power, and performance targets. The Lattice Diamond design environment allows designers to efficiently manage these multiple implementations in one project. In addition, Lattice Diamond software continues to provide industry-leading features specifically developed for low cost and low power applications. These include a very accurate power calculator, pin based simultaneous switching output noise calculator, and proven MAP and PAR FPGA implementation algorithms that help ensure low cost and low power design solutions.
