HILLSBORO, Ore -- Lattice Semiconductor Corp. here todayannounced the production release of the ispMACH 4A family of high performance, low cost, in-system programmable CPLDs. The ispMACH 4A is the first family of products from Lattice and Vantis as a unified company. Lattice acquired Vantis from Advanced Micro Devices Inc. last year.
Manufactured on Lattice's advanced 0.25 micron (L-effective) E2CMOS technology, the devices combine Lattice's ISP technology with Vantis' advanced MACH architecture. Lattice reported that the CPLDs deliver eight logic density options, from 32 to 512 macrocells, with up to 5 nanoseconds at 182 MHz (Fmax) SpeedLocked performance.
Steve Stark, Lattice's director of component marketing, said that by employing its E2CMOS technology, Lattice was able to achieve die sizes 20% smaller than competitive devices.
The ispMACH devices are available in packages from 44 to 388 leads, including PLCC, PQFP, TQFP and BGA configurations, and is supported by a broad library of design tools including Lattice's new ispDesignExpert systems.
Pricing for the new products start at $1.00 for a 32-macrocell device.
