Lowest Power SERDES-capable FPGA in the industry

Lowest Power SERDES-capable FPGA in the industryy

The LatticeECP3 family is the third generation high value FPGA from Lattice Semiconductor, which offers the industry’s lowest power consumption and price of any SERDES-capable FPGA device. The LatticeECP3 FPGA family offers multi-protocol 3.2G SERDES with XAUI jitter compliance, DDR3 memory interfaces, powerful DSP capabilities, high density on-chip memory and up to 149K LUTS, all with half the power consumption and half the price of competitive SERDES-capable FPGAs.

Features include:

  • Low-power 65nm process with 4-input look-up table (LUT) fabric
  • Logic densities from 17K to 149K LUTs
  • Upto 6.8Mbits of Embedded Block RAM (EBR)
  • 2 DLLs per device, 2 to 10 PLLs per device
  • High Speed embedded SERDES
  • Multiply, accumulate, addition and subtraction
  • High performance Adder Trees and MMAC functionality
  • 54-bit Cascadable Arithmetic Logic Unit
  • 24 to 320 multipliers (18×18)
  • Advanced configuration options
  • Flexible I/O buffers
  • Wide range of Package & User I/O options
