XENTROTEC Selects the LatticeECP3 FPGA Family for Multichannel HD Video Multiplexer and HD-DVR Solutions

HILLSBORO, OR--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2011) - Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced that XENTROTEC CO., LTD., Seoul, Korea, has chosen the mid-range LatticeECP3™ FPGA for use in its digital video recorder (DVR) solution. XENTROTEC, which recently introduced its new multichannel HD video multiplexer and HD digital video recorder solution at ISC WEST 2011, selected the LatticeECP3 FPGA over competing FPGAs and application-specific alternatives because the LatticeECP3 device's built-in transceivers, high speed memory controllers and HD-SDI capability met the rigorous end market requirements for superior DVR video and image processing performance.

"The LatticeECP3 FPGA has enabled us to implement a low cost, low power, high performance HD-SDI-DVR solution with a high speed DDR3 interface. In addition, the LatticeECP3 FPGA is unique in that it is the only low cost solution in the marketplace to provide up to 16 SERDES transceivers The LatticeECP3 device also helps us to promptly respond to changing market demands," said Sang Kyun, Kim (Philip), CEO of XENTROTEC. "The functionality implemented on the LatticeECP3 FPGA includes On-Screen Display, Motion Detection, SD to HD Scaler and Multi-SDI Quad and Mux. Also, because the LatticeECP3 FPGA is programmable, the solution can be scaled to apply to 4/8/8 embedded DVR channels, PCI add-in card-based solutions or video servers and switches."

"We are pleased to collaborate with XENTROTEC and are proud that our LatticeECP3 device has been selected for their video multiplexer and recorder products. Lattice is committed to the support of HD-SDI technology with our LatticeECP3 FPGA family as well as design solutions that provide optimized image processing performance," said Shakeel Peera, Lattice Director of Marketing for Silicon and Solutions. "Our collaboration with XENTROTEC will enable even more end customers to access the benefits of our SERDES-based LatticeECP3 FPGA, and our silicon and solutions roadmap will continue to support evolving video standards."

About the Lattice ECP3 FPGA Family
The mid-range LatticeECP3 FPGA family is comprised of the lowest power, SERDES-enabled FPGAs in the market today. The family's five FPGAs offer standards-compliant, multi-protocol 3.2G SERDES, DDR1/� memory interfaces and high performance, cascadable DSP slices that are ideal for RF, baseband and image signal processing. Toggling at 1Gbps, the LatticeECP3 FPGAs also feature fast LVDS I/O as well as embedded memory of up to 6.8 Mbits. Logic density varies from 17K LUTs to 149K LUTs with up to 586 user I/O. The LatticeECP3 FPGA family is ideally suited for deployment in high volume cost- and power-sensitive video camera and display, wireline and wireless infrastructure applications.
