HILLSBORO, OR - Lattice Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: LSCC) announced its participation in the “Will FPGAs Crack Mobile?” panel on February 27 at the 22nd ACM/SIGDA International Symposium on Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), which takes place in Monterey, Ca. from February 26-28, 2014. The panel will be the annual symposium’s most extensive discussion to date for addressing FPGAs in mobile applications.
Lattice Chief Technology Officer David Rutledge will participate as a panelist, and Satwant Singh, Director Strategic Planning and Ecosystem at Lattice, will moderate the six-person panel.
The panel is comprised of representatives from OEMs, ecosystem solutions providers, FPGA vendors, as well as the research community, and will take place on the evening of February 27 at the conference Banquet being held at the Monterey Marriott. The panel will produce a rounded discussion covering the recent trend of mobile driving the semiconductor industry, and in particular, how FPGAs can play a role in the ecosystem. The panel will dive deeper to discuss the challenges faced by OEMs, system designers and ecosystem developers that can potentially be addressed by FPGAs.
“At one point, FPGAs were not considered a viable solution for mobile devices due to their larger size, power consumption and cost factors, yet we are now seeing them incorporated into smartphones,” said Vaughn Betz, General Chair of the 2014 FPGA Symposium. “We look forward to bringing together different viewpoints to discuss the broader adoption of FPGAs and the challenges vendors face as mobile technologies increasingly drive market forces within our segment of the semiconductor industry.”
