Software Defined Radios (SDR) provide a flexible and programmable communication platform by combining the RF front-end to a digital signal processor. Lattice FPGAs provide a high level of programmability, reconfigurability and control that results in optimized system performance with break-through reduction in system power and size. Lattice FPGAs provide a seamless interface to industry leading RF components to lower development risk and time-to-market. Lattice FPGA resources are optimized with signal processing and memory blocks that are required to implement many waveform types, wide operating frequency bands and wide operating temperature range without the need for cooling.

Latticeā€™s offers DSP and interface IP, tools and reference designs to enable a plethora of possible solutions and architectures. To accelerate time to market, developers can start with PC based plug-in cards equipped with Lattice FPGAs to capture and manipulate waveforms or to optimize the employed algorithms. Within the FPGA, high bandwidth interfaces offer the ability to transfer blocks of data with low latency using direct memory access from RF sub-system to memory, processing and higher layer system CPU.
