Check the facts...

Folks, do you even check basic facts about your stories ?

Lattice HAS NOT shipped out XO3. If you go to their site and click on FPGA->MachXO3, you'll see only 3 MachXO3L models. Which have NOTHING in common with MachXO3 in your article.

They have NO MIPI interface, no fast SERDES for PCIe, nothing even close to those claimed "540 I/O packages" etc etc.

They seem similar to old XO2, just constrained to a few packages in all but two related details.

And both of them are due to the fact that while XO2 had conventional FLASH that could be reprogrammed 10.000 times and had data endurance of 10 years, XO3 can be preogrammed only TWICE."

Consequently, it has no UFM User Flash memory Block ( UFB), since it has no FLASH that could be reprogrammed on board.

If you look closely on their page, they say with one sentence that basically what was promised initially ( and until not long ago) as MachXO3 is to come as MachXO3-H.

ice40 is all dandy for lowest power stuff but from what was promised as MachXO3, we have seen NOTHING so far.

Which doesn't mean we will not, ofcourse.

I'm just saying this is NOT YET it.

Configuration memory?

Is configuration memory inside device or external to it? If it has internal configuration memory and live at power up, it may be very good for many more applications.

How unusual is it for a semiconductor company to sell 1 billion of anything?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
