Hillsboro, Ore.Lattice Semiconductor Corp. announced that automotive versions of its MachXO Crossover programmable logic devices and ispMACH 4000V CPLD devices have been characterized and qualified to meet the certification requirements of the AEC-Q100 standard as defined by the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC). www.aecouncil.com/
Production quantities of the LA-MachXO and LA-ispMACH 4000V product families, which are Lattice's first programmable Lattice Automotive, or LA, devices, will be available this quarter. Lattice can provide standard PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) documentation to automotive customers requiring it.
The automotive LA-MachXO family includes 256, 640, 1200 and 2280 LUT devices, with user I/O counts ranging from 78 to 271 I/O, and features such as on-chip memory and PLLs in the larger devices. The LA-ispMACH 4000V CPLD automotive family offers low power and includes three devices with densities ranging from 32 to 128 macrocells and user I/Os ranging from 30 to 96. The LA-ispMACH 4000V CPLDs are a flexible, low cost alternative to ASICs in automotive design.
Prices for the LA-MachXO256 automotive devices start at $1.95 in 100,000 piece quantities. Prices for the LA-ispMACH 4032V start at 95 cents in 100,000 piece quantities. These automotive grade devices are available now for orders in popular lead-free (pb-free) TQFP and fine-pitch thin BGA packages.
