April 24, 2012 -- Lattice Semiconductor Corp. today announced the immediate availability of its low-cost, low-power MachXO2 family of programmable logic devices (PLD) in a new 32 QFN (quad flatpack no-leads) package. The addition of this small 5x5-mm form-factor package option extends use of the MachXO2 PLDs to applications where size constraints, ease of layout and manufacturability are critical.
Arago Systems of Sophia Antipolis, France has already designed the MachXO2 device in the new 32 QFN package into its products. "Our Wisnet product families of IPv6 sensor network nodes and gateways (6LoWPAN) require tiny form factor, low power consumption, industrial temperature range and low cost," said Arnault Fontebride, Chief Technical Officer of Arago Systems. "The function and flexibility of the MachXO2 PLD in the small, rugged, easy-to-manufacture 32 QFN package is a combination that fits perfectly into our demanding industrial requirements."
"The widespread adoption of the MachXO2 PLD family in system and consumer applications reflects our customers' enthusiastic acceptance of low-cost, low-power, non-volatile PLDs to quickly bring their products to rapidly evolving markets," said Shakeel Peera, Lattice Director of Strategic Marketing. "The addition of the 32 QFN package to the MachXO2 portfolio promises to broaden its application in space-constrained, low power applications, including consumer, communications, computing, industrial and medical."
Availability and Pricing
Engineering samples of the devices in the 32 QFN package are available immediately and supported in Lattice Diamond design software version 1.4.2. Production-qualified versions are scheduled for Q3 2012. All other MachXO2 PLDs are fully production qualified and have been shipping since 2011. MachXO2 PLDs are available for ordering via the Lattice online store. MachXO2 PLDs with 256 LUTs are available for $0.55 in volumes of 250K units.
