Lattice Semiconductor has launched a software stack to accelerate the development of advanced, flexible Automotive system designs and applications on its FPGA devices.

The Lattice Drive stack expands the company’s application-specific software into the automotive FPGA market for applications such as in-vehicle infotainment display connectivity and data processing, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) sensor bridging and processing, and low power zonal bridging applications for driver, cabin, and vehicle monitoring.

Lattice has automotive qualified CertusPro-NX advanced General Purpose FPGAs for 8.1 Gbps SERDES as well as the Certus-NX – Low-Power General Purpose Automotive FPGAs for motor & LED control, networking and co-processing and the CrossLink-NX FPGA for embedded vision and processing.

“The Atomotive industry is rapidly evolving and cars are getting smarter than ever with new technological advancements, notably with zonal architectures requiring varied sensors and displays across vehicle models. Now more than ever, manufacturers need solutions that enable them to innovate while maintaining flexibility for future updates,” said Bob O’Donnell, President and chief analyst, TECHnalysis Research. “Lattice software solutions offer a significant benefit to their customers, making it easier for them to integrate Lattice’s low power, small size, and scalable FPGAs into a variety of applications, now include advance automotive solutions.”

“Combining comprehensive software solutions from the start in your application design process is critical for time-to-market acceleration,” said Esam Elashmawi, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer at Lattice Semiconductor. “We are excited to introduce our sixth software application-specific solution stack, Lattice Drive, delivering advanced Automotive application features to make it easier than ever for our customers to develop innovative in-vehicle experiences based on our low power FPGA solutions.”

The initial release of Lattice Drive focuses on in-vehicle infotainment display connectivity and data processing with advanced display connectivity and processing that enables multi-resolution scaling and supports display sizes up to 4K. This also supports DisplayPort up to HBR 3 at 8.1 Gbps per lane and provides image/video enhancement with a scalable full array local dimming on the FPGA.

The Lattice Drive solution stack provides comprehensive application-specific solutions that combine reference platforms and designs, demos, IP building blocks, and FPGA design tools to accelerate customer application development and time-to-market.
