[Blog] Product Longevity You Can Count On

Electronics products can frequently run in excess of 20-year product lifecycles. This fact clearly makes product longevity an important device selection criterion for FPGAs. No company wants to face a rushed last time buy or an unexpected board redesign due to FPGA obsolescence. Finding a suitable supplier of an obsolete part can be a complex undertaking, especially if the original FPGA design team has long since departed from your organization.

Between 2020 and present, some FPGA suppliers have demonstrated their tendency to end of life their products at considerably greater frequency than Lattice. From 2020 through the time of writing, Lattice has discontinued only 2 FPGA products, whilst the competition has discontinued 3 to 8 times as many during the same period.

As a strong and vibrant 40+ year-old FPGA company, Lattice knows product obsolescence cycles can dramatically impact your business. Lattice works diligently with our supply chain to reliably meet your product delivery obligations. This commitment is demonstrated by the large number of devices we have supported in the market for over 20 years. This is fulfilled by multi-sourcing key elements of the silicon supply chain and adding redundancy to assembly and test across multiple reputable suppliers. We are pleased to share our product lifecycles plans for our current product families so that you can rest assured that Lattice is your trusted FPGA production partner far into the future of your volume shipments lifecycle.
