Lattice MachXO2 PLD Family Named Finalist in Elektra Awards Competition

Low Cost, Low Power, Versatile "Do-it All PLD" Is Honored

HILLSBORO, OR--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced that an independent panel of judges has named the Lattice MachXO2™ PLD family a finalist in Elektra 2011, the European Electronics Industry Awards competition. The MachXO2 family is nominated in the "Digital Semiconductor Product of the Year" category.

"This highly coveted recognition from the Elektra 2011 judges is very gratifying," said Doug Hunter, Lattice Vice President of Corporate Marketing. "Our MachXO2 PLD family has been broadly adopted by customers for use in both system and consumer applications. We recently announced that the MachXO2 devices are now available in extremely small 2.5nm x 2.5nm WLCSP (wafer level chip scale packages), which enables them to address consumer applications previously not accessible to PLDs."

Now in its ninth year and an established annual highpoint of the electronics industry, the Elektra Awards give the industry the opportunity to recognize the achievements of individuals and companies across Europe. The winners will be announced at an Elektra Awards Dinner and Christmas Party, which takes place on Wednesday, December 14 at the Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge in London.

About the Lattice MachXO2 PLD Family

The MachXO2 devices provide designers of low density PLDs an unprecedented mix of low cost, low power and high system integration in a single device. Built on a low power 65-nm process featuring embedded Flash technology, the MachXO2 family delivers a 3X increase in logic density, a 10X increase in embedded memory, more than a 100X reduction in static power to as low as 19uW and up to 30% lower cost compared to the prior generation MachXO™ PLD family. These devices are ideal for control PLD applications in end markets such as telecom infrastructure, computing, high end industrial, high end medical, and low power applications such as smart phones, GPS devices and digital cameras.
