Etron to Showcase Lattice FPGA and & Etron RPC DRAM™ Interoperability at CES 2019

LAS VEGAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 7, 2019 — Etron (Taiwan GTSM: 5351) will demonstrate interoperability of the Lattice (NASDAQ: LSCC) EPC5 FPGA solution and Etron RPC DRAM, laying the groundwork for a miniaturized Endpoint AI subsystem suitable for high volume, form factor constrained applications, at the Etron booth during CES 2019. The high performance, small footprint of the Lattice ECP5 FPGA is complemented by the high bandwidth of the RPC DRAM in its low pin-count miniaturized Wafer Level Chip Scale Package (“WLCSP”), which uses less than half the signals of conventional DDR solutions. The pin-count savings from the revolutionary RPC™ Architecture is exploited by reduced FPGA resource demands for the memory interface. Benefits are smaller component footprints on a smaller PCB assembly: and with the key elements produced at a lower manufacturing cost.

“The RPC DRAM brings tremendous value to the system designer by offering unprecedented value and size savings for FPGA-based subsystems by reducing the cost of interfacing to external memory. Using the smallest DRAM packages available, Etron continues to introduce innovative and valuable cost saving solutions for important high-growth markets, especially in form-factor critical Endpoint/Edge AI, industrial/robotic and multimedia applications such as AR/VR,” said Chung W. Lam, President of Etron Technology America. “Etron is pleased to be collaborating with Lattice to bring high-value subsystem solutions to these developing markets.”

“The Etron RPC™ architecture benefits Lattice customers when external DRAM is needed. Designers often use external DRAM to deliver more sophisticated features when deploying Lattice sensAI on the ECP5 FPGA. With the Etron RPC DRAM using only 24 IO pins, we can achieve the same bandwidth as x16 DDR3 DRAM. The RPC DRAM’s WLCSP 256Mbit DRAM package enables the miniaturization required in many of our targeted applications” said Gordon Hands, Director, Solutions Marketing, Lattice. “We are looking forward to further collaboration with Etron to aid our customers in development of innovative miniaturized AI solutions.”

Etron’s booth is No. 21615, South Hall 1, Las Vegas Convention Center. For further information please visit
