LATTICE SEMICONDUCTOR Certus-NX FPGA family optimized for infotainment, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and safety-focused applications in automobiles. Built on firm’s Lattice Nexus platform, devices combine automotive-grade features with best-in-class I/O density, power efficiency, small size, reliability, instant-on performance, and support for fast PCI Express (PCIe) and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. Devices deliver low power consumption – Up to 4X lower power use than similar FPGAs, with a programmable back bias that enables user-selectable high performance or low power operating modes, depending on the needs of the application. Products provide small form factor – Up to 3X smaller with up to 2X the I/O density per mm2 in comparison to similar competing FPGAs.
