Profile: Lattice Semiconductor Corp (LSCC.O)
22 May 2019
Lattice Semiconductor Corporation, incorporated on March 1, 1985, is engaged in providing connectivity solutions. The Company's end-market industries range from consumer electronics to industrial equipment, communications infrastructure and licensing. The Company operates through two segments: the core Lattice (Core) business, which includes intellectual property and semiconductor devices, and Qterics, a software-as-a-service business unit in the Lattice legal entity structure. The Company offers three types of semiconductor devices, including Programmable Logic Device (PLDs), Video Connectivity application specific standard products (ASSPs), and millimeterWave devices.
Programmable Logic Devices
The Company's PLDs are regular arrays of logic that can be custom-configured by the user through software. The Company offers four product family lines, which include The ECP families, The MachXO families, iCE40 families and Programmable Mixed Signal devices. The Company's ECP families are its Connectivity & Acceleration field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). They offer customers with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) capability and Serialize-Deserialize (SerDes) connectivity. The Company's MachXO families are known as Bridging and Expansion FPGAs. Its iCE40 families are the small size and ultra-low power, which are the optimal products for customizing consumer mobile and industrial handheld products. Its Programmable Mixed Signal devices offer Platform Manger 2 and L-ASC10 combine programmable digital logic with analog functionality to help customers manage power, thermal, and control planes in real time.
Video Connectivity ASSPs
The Company's Video Connectivity ASSPs performs various functions, including ensuring interoperability, enhancing picture quality, converting between resolutions, and transmitting/receiving content without the need for additional components. Specific device types include port processors, port controllers, video processors, transmitters, receivers, bridges, and converters. These devices are used in products, such as mobile phones, high-definition Television, home theater systems, automotive infotainment, personal computers, accessories, projectors and monitors.
The Company's mmWave Devices and modules allow customers to wirelessly transfer data and ultra-high-definition video content at gigabit speeds. Built using its 60 gigahertz SiBEAM technology, its mmWave transceivers, processors, and antenna arrays are divided into three groups, differentiated by their transmission range: Gigabit Connector, Gigabit Indoor and Gigabit Outdoor. Its Gigabit Connector devices eliminate the connectors on the mobile products. Its Gigabit Indoor devices and modules cut the wires in home, office, and factory. Its Gigabit Outdoor products provide wireless fiber for network backhaul. Gigabit Outdoor products provide the communications market with speed links for point-to-point connectivity.
The Company competes with Xilinx and Intel/Altera.
