Lattice Avant Answering the Aerospace and Defense Need for SWaP-C

Lattice Avant Answering the Aerospace and Defense Need for SWaP-C

Posted 01/04/2023 by Luke Miller, Vice President Aerospace and Defense Business Development

As we begin 2023, I realized that this year is my 27th Year in semiconductors with a focus on Aerospace and Defense (A&D). One of my proudest accomplishments during this time is the impacts I’ve had on the end states for military forces, which continue to this day in my work at Lattice. Did you know that 72 percent of all A&D platforms (Radar, Electronic Warfare, military communications software defined radio, etc.) use FPGAs and FPGAs represent approximately 35 percent of the U.S....

How FPGAs Can Make Industry 4.0 Work

How FPGAs Can Make Industry 4.0 Work

Posted 12/22/2022 by Bob O’Donnell, President and chief analyst, TECHnalysis Research

One of the hottest topics in tech is the concept of Industry 4.0, which essentially refers to digitization, automation, and connected computing intelligence being brought to the world of manufacturing. The idea is to blend the value and capabilities of cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) together in a way that allows for smarter, more reliable, and more efficient operations in manufacturing and other industrial environments. An essential part of the Indust...

2022 Lattice Security Seminar Roundup

2022 Lattice Security Seminar Roundup

Posted 12/12/2022 by Mamta Gupta, Director of Security & Comms Segment Marketing

Organizations face more cyberattacks today than ever before as cyber criminals and bad actors develop new ways to attack systems with each new software and hardware device deployed. In fact, a 2021 Cyber Resilient Organization Study found that 61% of respondents were forced to pay the ransom in a ransomware attack. This metric underscores the fact that being cybersecure is no longer enough, companies today must also be cyber resilient so they can quickly respond to and recover from attacks as th...

Functional Safety in the Evolving Automotive Market

Functional Safety in the Evolving Automotive Market

Posted 11/03/2022 by Christian Mueller & Mark Hoopes, Lattice Semiconductor

Functional safety (FuSa) ensures systems or pieces of equipment are operating correctly in response to inputs or failure, and is a crucial part of the overall safety of a system. Originally developed for the Industrial market before being adopted into other markets, FuSa is now critical to automotive applications and is gaining even more importance as more technological advancements are added to vehicles. What impact has this shift had on the evolving Automotive market? We sat down with Functio...

FPGAs Helping Cars Get Smarter

FPGAs Helping Cars Get Smarter

Posted 08/30/2022 by Bob O’Donnell, President and chief analyst, TECHnalysis Research

One of the many interesting things we all learned during the pandemic is that supply chains can cause problems for lots of people. Automotive industry supply chains in particular are, well, really complicated. Even general consumers started to learn how important semiconductors are to the production of today’s increasingly intelligent cars and how, if chips are in short supply, vehicles can’t get produced. What they probably didn’t quite get to is what a critical role FPGAs pla...
