Wipro Technologies Selects Lattice MachXO PLDs for New Server Platforms

Versatile PLD Architecture Chosen for System Integration and Design Flexibility Benefits

HILLSBORO, OR--(Marketwire - May 18, 2010) -  Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced that Wipro Technologies (NASDAQ: WIT), one of the largest providers of design services for integrated business, technology and process solutions, has selected the MachXO™ PLD family for use in their new server platforms. The MachXO device performs many of the general purpose I/O expansion, interface bridging and power-up management functions required for the new server designs.

"The superior system integration and design flexibility benefits of MachXO PLDs were the primary reasons in choosing the Lattice solution," said Bharath Thammappa, Program Manager at Wipro Technologies. "Lattice has done an outstanding job of providing us with technical support for implementing this design and enabling us to reduce development time and offer our customers a compelling solution at attractive price points."

"We are excited about working with Wipro Technologies, one of the largest providers of design services in the market," said Gordon Hands, Director of Marketing for Low Density and Mixed Signal Solutions. "With MachXO PLDs, we were able to provide a complete solution that enabled designers to accelerate their time-to-market compared to alternative ASIC and ASSP solutions."

The MachXO PLD family's system integration benefits have driven its increasing adoption in a broad range of low density applications in a variety of end markets, including consumer, automotive, communications, computing, industrial and medical. The MachXO PLD family offers customers an "All-in-One-PLD" by providing distributed and embedded memory, built-in PLLs, high performance LVDS I/O, remote field upgrade (TransFR™ technology) and a low power sleep mode, all in a single device. In November 2009 Lattice announced that it has shipped more than 25 million MachXO PLDs. All MachXO PLDs are fully production qualified and have been shipping with a track record of high volume and reliability for more than four years. MachXO PLDs feature a broad range of densities, packages and speed grade options and are available for ordering via the Lattice online store at and through authorized Lattice distributors at
