Product Sustainability

Sustainability is built into our mission as the low power programmable leader. We have a long history of innovation and an on-going commitment to developing cleantech products that lead the industry in energy efficiency and small size.

Product Design

  • We combine innovative circuit design with advanced process technology to create FPGAs that lead the industry in power efficiency and small package size. This can help our customers achieve lower energy consumption and more compact footprints with their designs.
  • The programmability of our FPGAs enables extended longevity, which can led to less waste being created over the lifetime of an FPGA compared to other types of semiconductors.
  • We have delivered multiple generations and families of clean tech products since our founding in 1983 that help our customers reduce the power consumption of their devices and extend their products’ lifespans.
  • We carefully examine the potential environmental impacts of our products and ways to improve the energy efficiency of our solutions.
  • Lattice products help our customers protect natural resources:
    • Smart client compute devices that lower power consumption
    • Solar panel and wind turbine control that maximizes the delivery of renewable energy
    • Efficient motor control for industrial and automotive applications
    • Lower power wireless base stations
    • Smaller & lighter products that reduce packaging & transportation waste
  • Lattice is committed to developing artificial intelligence solutions with ethical and fair considerations for a variety of factors, including gender, ethnicity, and age.

Supply Chain Management

We hold ourselves to high ESG standards and require our suppliers to have strong ESG programs as part of our qualification process. As a fabless semiconductor company, Lattice utilizes a subcontracted supply chain.

Supply Chain Partners

Commitment to High ESG Standards

  • We select supply chain partners that are leaders in ESG, including those that prioritize energy and water conservation, and we commit to ensuring that these companies comply with all global standards and maintain appropriate certifications.
  • We work exclusively with industry-leading suppliers. Our primary silicon foundry partners include: UMC, TSMC, and Samsung. Each of these silicon suppliers are leaders in the semiconductor industry as well as leaders in corporate responsibility.
  • Our primary OSAT (Assembly & Test) partner is Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) with an industry leading ESG program.

Driving Consistent Compliance

  • Ensuring Compliance with Global Standards/Certifications
    • Lattice requires all our supply chain partners to maintain ISO14001 registrations, which certifies a company's commitment to preserving the natural environment.
    • We have adopted industry-best practices that removed Lead (Pb) from solder compositions and converted plastic packages to Halogen-free formulations.
    • We have worked with our OSATs to eliminate the use of conflict minerals from our products. We regularly publish a CMRT (Conflict Mineral Reporting Template) that documents all the mineral smelters used in our supply chain.
    • We adhere to the European chemical standards of REACH and RoHS.
  • Additional Activities to Ensure Compliance
    • Lattice requires our primary supply chain partners to acknowledge and implement the principles within the RBA Code of Conduct. This code of conduct spells out the minimum requirements for workers’ rights, occupational safety, environmental impact, and business ethics.
    • We work with our OSATs to reclaim minerals from ICs that are rejected during the manufacturing process.
    • We perform Quarterly Business Reviews of our OSATs and annual audits of our Foundry suppliers.
  • Lattice holds ISO9001:2015 Quality Management System (QMS) certification and ISO14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) certification.
