The Lattice IspPAC power manager is used to “monitor, control and margin multiple power supplies” of external DC/DC converters. In contrast, Akros Silicon's AS19xx family provides BOTH integrated DC/DC converters and all the converters' monitoring, control, sequencing and margining through I2C, along with spread spectrum clocking capability to enhance EMI performance. In other words, Lattice's power manager is limited to monitoring and controlling features and lacks the integrated DC-DC converters of Akros' solution.

Seems like a nice set of features. Would be interesting to compare them to the Lattice Power management devices which have programmable logic included.
