This platform has been optimized to deliver the lowest power, smallest form factor, and highest performance FPGA devices in their class. The Avant-E family delivers the highest DSP and embedded memory to logic ratio for mid-range FGPAs, enabling intelligence at the edge for applications in automotive, communications, compute, and industrial market segments.
- High Performance, Compact, and low power – High logic capacity from 200k to 500k LCs, smallest 11 x 9 mm package option, and up to 2.5x lower power than competition
- Fast External Memory Support – LPDDR4/DDR4 at 1800 Mbps
- Efficient Edge AI Processing – Up to 7200 INT8 multipliers and 36 Mb embedded memory enable more efficient implementation of AI/ML algorithms
Lattice will introduce additional Avant families to leverage the full capabilities of the platform. Click here to be notified as new devices become available.
Lattice CertusPro-NX General Purpose FPGA
Lattice is excited to announce our new, advanced general purpose FPGA family, Lattice CertusPro™-NX. The company’s fourth FPGA family based on the Lattice Nexus™ development platform, CertusPro-NX FPGAs deliver best-in-class system bandwidth, industry-leading power efficiency, and support new protocols and advanced standards for next-gen applications in the communications, compute, industrial, automotive, and consumer markets.
CertusPro-NX FPGAs are designed to enable customer innovation around applications including data co-processing in intelligent systems, high-bandwidth signal bridging in 5G communications infrastructure, and sensor interface bridging in ADAS systems.
Class-leading power efficiency – By leveraging Lattice’s innovations in FPGA fabric architecture and a low power FD-SOI manufacturing process, CertusPro-NX devices deliver exceptional performance while consuming up to four times less power than competing FPGAs of a similar class.
Best-in-class system bandwidth – With support for up to eight programmable SERDES lanes capable of speeds up to 10.3 Gbps, CertusPro-NX FPGAs deliver the highest system bandwidth in their class to enable popular communication and display interfaces like 10 Gigabit Ethernet, PCI Express, SLVS-EC, CoaXPress, and DisplayPort.
Optimized Edge processing – To meet demand for robust data co-processing in Edge AI and ML applications, CertusPro-NX FPGAs feature up to 65 percent more available on-chip memory than other similar FPGAs. CertusPro-NX devices are the only low power FPGAs currently supporting the LPDDR4 DRAM memory standard which is preferred due to its projected long-term availability.
High logic density – With support for up to 100k logic cells, CertusPro-NX FPGAs currently offer the highest logic density of any Nexus-based FPGA.
Industry-leading reliability – Mission-critical automotive, industrial, and communications applications must deliver high availability to enable predictable performance and keep users safe. Thanks to innovations in the Lattice Nexus platform, CertusPro-NX devices are up to 100 times more resistant to soft errors.
Smallest-in-class form factor – With a design footprint of 81 mm2, CertusPro-NX FPGAs are up to 6.5 times smaller than competing devices. Small form factor is a key design consideration for developers of industrial cameras or the SFP modules used in communication systems.
