Firstly, I’d like to say that programmable chips are being used as companion chips to mobile chipsets in systems. Programmable chips are not a part of the mobile chipset itself. There are several commercially available mobile devices that use Lattice programmable devices. I can share with you some publicly available teardown reports that have programmable chips from Lattice as examples, below. With regards to your question of price, there are several variables that influence the price of our products. Depending on the functionality required, we have a range of products that are priced anywhere from under $1 to few dollars while meeting the basic low cost, low power requirements of mobile applications. 1. http://www.techrepublic.com/photos/cracking-open-the-2011-barnes-noble-nook-e-book-reader-wi-fi/6243892?seq=36&tag=thumbnail-view-selector;get-photo-roto : Image 36 of 44 2. http://www.techrepublic.com/photos/samsung-focus-windows-phone-7-teardown/492287?seq=50&tag=content;siu-container#photopaging: Image 50 of 67 3. http://www.eetimes.com/General/DisplayPrintViewContent?contentItemId=4207606 -Subra

Do you have examples of current mobile chipset including such kind of FPGA ? What is the cost of such FPGA in a chipset ?

Yes, we do plan on offering BIF master IP under NDA with our customers who meet MIPI’s legal criteria.

Are there any plans to make the BIF Master design available as IP? Seems like a natural.
