  • Guidance, part tracking, and identification
  • Optical character recognition and verification (OCR/OCV)
  • Barcode / 2D readers and Pattern recognition
  • Vision guided Robotics
Machine Vision

Lattice FPGAs are optimized for Machine Vision, offering the following benefits:

  • Up to 75% lower power than similar FPGAs
  • Small form factors – from 4mm x 4mm
  • Optimized Sensor I/F - 2.5Gbps Hardened MIPI D-Phy / lane, 1.5 Gbps I/O for SLVS EC, and LVDS
  • 5Gbps PCI-e for Frame Grabber and Video processing systems
  • High performance / Deterministic Low Latency
  • Lattice mVision and Lattice sensAI solutions stacks

Lattice mVision and Lattice sensAI solutions stacks provide ready-to-go flexible IP building blocks, reference designs and platforms to further speed development of products.
