Making Notebooks Smart, Sleek and Secure

PCs are the dominate productivity device for professional and personal use. Desktop and notebook designers are leveraging artificial intelligence (AI)-based applications to deliver improved user experiences on next-generation devices. At the same time, these developers are designing new form factors with ultra slim designs and creating secure devices that keep their users’ information secure and private by protecting their devices against firmware attacks. Lattice’s solutions running on low power FPGAs provide:

  • Accelerated AI experiences driving instant on functionality, extended battery life, improved privacy, and collaborative conferencing experiences.
  • Flexible sensors connectivity and processing
  • Enable new form factors by reducing the number of wires between the screen and the base
  • Protection against malicious attacks with NIST SP 800 193-compliant firmware protection
