Lattice Semiconductor


Lattice Semiconductor Avant™ FPGA Platform

Taking Low Power to New Heights, Lowest Power and Smallest Package, Industry Leading Reliability and Efficient Processing with Class Leading on Chip Memory

The Lattice Avant™ 16nm FinFET platform is the foundation for industry leading low-power and small form factor mid-range FPGA families. The platform features class leading 25 Gbps SERDES, hardened PCI Express and external memory PHY interfaces, and high DSP counts for the latest AI/ML and computer vision algorithms. The Avant platform offers best in class reliability and security to suit a wide range of applications.

With Avant, designers gain access to the same low power, density-optimized product concept they expect from Lattice, at a much higher capacity. The result is a device family with high-end features, but with midrange (and low-end) form factors and power levels.

Avant implements a range of high-bandwidth I/O standards, such as PCIe® Gen4, and LPDDR4 and DDR5, and provides ample DSP and workload acceleration horsepower. Supported clock rates range up to 350 MHz for the FPGA fabric and 625 MHz for embedded RAM blocks and DSP multiply/accumulate blocks. The devices are the industry’s smallest form factor FPGAs to offer 25 Gbps SERDES capability compared to similar class competitive devices.
