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....

Accelerating Space Development with Low Power, Radiation-Tolerant FPGAs and GRLIB

Posted 06/09/2022 by Guest blog: Adam Taylor CEng FIET Embedded Systems Consultant

The importance and adoption of FPGA technologies are growing exponentially in space applications thanks to their on-orbit reconfigurability, responsiveness, and flexibility. This is especially true for the latest space application development aimed at Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Operators in LEO typically deploy fleets of satellites to perform applications from ship and asset tracking to weather, environment, and ecosystem monitoring. However, developing applications for space brings challenges ...
