Lattice Certus-NX Redefines Low Power, High I/O Count FPGAs

Looking for an FPGA that delivers greater I/O density and lower power in a significantly smaller package? Check out Lattice’s new Certus™-NX family of FPGAs. Leveraging the tremendous advantages of Lattice’s new Nexus platform – the industry’s first low power FPGA platform to use a 28-nm FD-SOI process technology – Certus-NX offers industrial and automotive designers best-in-class power savings, up to a 3x smaller form factor, higher reliability, and instant-on performance.

Lattice Certus-NX Redefines Low Power, High I/O Count FPGAs

And to help designers meet rapidly changing connectivity and performance needs, the Certus-NX adds PCIe and Ethernet chip-to-chip connectivity.

Features include:

  • Up to 39K logic cells, 2.9 Mb embedded memory, 56 18 x 18 multipliers, 192 programmable I/O, one lane of 5 Gbps PCIe, two lanes of 1.25 Gbps SGMII, two ADCs (each 12-bit, 1 MSPS).
  • Packages as small as 6×6 mm, and in ball-pitch options of 0.5 and 0.8 mm.
  • Power modes – User selectable Low Power vs. High Performance modes, enabled by FD-SOI programmable back-bias.
  • Design security – ECDSA bitstream authentication, coupled with robust AES-256 encryption.
  • Instant-on configuration – I/O configures in 3 ms, and full-device as fast as 8 ms.

Additionally, Lattice released version 2.1 of the Radiant design software, which includes support for Certus-NX and SystemVerilog to make it easier than ever for developers to build applications based on the latest FPGA technology.
