Lattice boosts performance of iCE40 FPGAs
9 November 2016, Programmable Logic

Lattice Semiconductor has expanded its iCE40 Ultra range of FPGAs to include the iCE40 UltraPlus family. The new devices deliver eight times more memory (1,1 Mbit RAM), twice the digital signal processors (8x DSPs), and improved I/Os over previous generations. Available in multiple package sizes, the programmable nature of iCE40 UltraPlus is ideal for smartphones, wearables, drones, 360° cameras, human-machine interfaces (HMIs) and industrial automation, and security and surveillance products.

The FPGAs are well suited for voice recognition, gesture recognition, image recognition, haptics, graphics acceleration, signal aggregation, I³C bridging and more. This brings added intelligence to smartphones and IoT edge products, such as wearables and home audio assisted devices, to be always on, always listening and ready to instantly process commands locally without going to the cloud.

iCE40 UltraPlus positions itself as a mobile heterogeneous computing (MHC) technology, a paradigm concentrated around a highly energy-efficient method for computing algorithms quickly and locally using dissimilar processors to offload power hungry application processors (APs) in battery-powered devices. More DSPs offer the ability to compute higher-quality algorithms, while increased memory allows data to be buffered for longer low-power states. The flexible I/Os enable a more distributed heterogeneous processing architecture. This combination provides flexibility to enable OEMs and the ‘maker’ market to quickly deliver key innovations, such as always-on sensor buffers and acoustic beam forming.
