Lattice Semiconductor launches the new Image SensorExtender Card (SEC) Set
With this design, Lattice makes a big leap in the Image Processing Industry: it allows to extend the path between the Image Sensor and the Image Signal Processor via some SerDes/LVDS protocol over Twisted Pair CAT5e/6 Cable .
The distance is presented as up to 8 meters for 720p60 or 1080p30 resolution.

The ultra-low power IGLOO family of flash FPGAs is designed to be used in battery-powered portable devices.
The power consumption is @5 µW and the voltage from 1.2V to 1.5V.
Flash*Freeze Mode is the technology used in IGLOO devices that enables easy entry and exit from ultra-low power mode (2 µW) while retaining SRAM and register data.
Low-power applications that require 32-bit processing can use the ARM® Cortex™-M1 processor without license fee or royalties in M1 IGLOO devices.
The IGLOO family includes:
Lattice has begun shipping the highest density member of the next generation LatticeECP4 FPGA family to select customers.
This new family offers the richest portfolio of low cost, low power mid-range devices under 200K LUTs, with high performance innovations such as 6G SERDES in low cost packages, powerful DSP blocks and built-in hard IP-based communication blocks.
The highest density device in the family, the LatticeECP4-190, features 183K LUTs, 480 double data rate DSP multipliers (18×18), 5.8 Mbits of memory and twelve 6 Gbps SERDES channels, making it ideally suited for a broad range of cost- and power-sensitive wireless, wireline, video and computing applications.
