Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

Low power innovations for the next frontier of aviation

During the last 25 years, defense-grade unmanned aerial vehicles have benefitted from Lattice's advances in vision processing and sensor fusion to solve complex national security challenges. In the coming years, advances in process technology, algorithms and machine learning will deliver a new set of robust capabilities and use cases while advancing flight control and autonomy, lowering mission costs and extending the payload and duration of missions.

Focused on vision processing performance at the lowest power and always-on AI built on highly reliable FD-SOI platform, Lattice delivers industry leading solutions to help develop next generation avionics with reduced risk and time to market.

Key Lattice FPGA Features & Benefits

  • Best-in-class performance for vision processing and video bridging applications with up to 75% lower power vs similar FPGAs
  • Small form factor packaging with sizes as small as 4 mm x 4 mm
  • Built-in high-speed connectivity including embedded MIPI DPHY, PCIE, DDR3, 1.5 Gbps LVDS and integrated Analog-to-Digital converters simplify data acquisition and processing, sensor fusion, RF front-end interfaces, and control plane implementations
  • Lowest power, parallel multi-sensor interfaces for sensor fusion and low latency networking solutions help integrate real time data to provide a single, autonomous operating picture and enable more informed decisions

Example Applications

Image Sensor Processing

  • Bridge one or multiple CSI-2 image sensors to processor interface (PCIe, CMOS, CSI-2)
  • Integrate full functional universal video pipeline
  • Examples: Debayer, color correction matrix, RGB gain, gamma correction…
  • Offloads ISP functionality from the processor

Sensor Aggregation

  • Aggregate up to 11 MIPI CSI-2 image sensors into one MIPI CSI-2 output
  • Stitch data together into larger horizontal video frame
  • Use external DDR memory to stitch data into larger vertical video frame
  • Arbitrate data from image sensors using unique virtual channel numbers
  • Extend limited processor sensor interface capability and connect more sensors

Co-processing

  • Off-load CPU by using Certus-NX as a co-processor to accelerate complex functions
  • DDR3 & LPDDR2 interface support (up to 1066 Mbps) and on-chip embedded memory (up to 2.9 Mbit) provide multiple options for data buffering
  • Compact packages as small as 6x6 mm with PCIe and DDR memory interface support
