PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 21, 2018--
Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today unveiled Lattice
sensAI™ – a complete technology stack combining modular hardware
kits, neural network IP cores, software tools, reference designs and
custom design services – to accelerate integration of machine learning
inferencing into broad market IoT applications. With solutions optimized
for ultra-low power consumption (under 1 mW–1 W), small package size
(5.5 mm2 –100 mm2), interface flexibility (MIPI®
CSI-2, LVDS, GigE, etc.), and high-volume pricing (~$1-$10 USD), Lattice
sensAI stack fast-tracks implementation of edge computing close to the
source of data.

“Lattice sensAI addresses the unmet need for flexible, low cost,
ultra-low power AI silicon solutions suited for rapid deployment across
a wide range of emerging, mass market IoT applications,” said Deepak
Boppana, senior director, product and segment marketing at Lattice
Semiconductor. “By delivering a full-featured machine learning
inferencing technology stack combining flexible, ultra-low power FPGA
hardware and software solutions, the Lattice sensAI stack accelerates
integration of on-device sensor data processing and analytics in edge
devices. These new edge computing solutions build on our leadership in
FPGAs for edge connectivity, implementing flexible sensor interface
bridging and data aggregation in high-volume IoT applications, including
smart speakers, surveillance cameras, industrial robots and drones.”
“The Edge is getting smarter with more computing capabilities being
deployed for real-time processing of data from an expanding range of
sensors, as seen in the consumer IoT space, and the emergence of
artificial intelligence is only accelerating this trend,” says Michael
Palma, research director at IDC. “Low power, small size, and low cost
silicon solutions that can perform such local sensor data processing,
will be critical for implementation of AI in various broad market edge
As the industry continues to adopt machine learning technology, latency,
privacy and network bandwidth limitations are increasingly pushing
computing to the Edge. IHS Markit expects 40B IoT devices at the Edge
between 2018 and 2025, and predicts that in the next 5-10 years, the
convergence of transformative technologies like IoT, AI-based edge
computing and cloud analytics are expected together to disrupt each and
every industry vertical and domain, as well as to foster new business
opportunities.* Semico Research predicts unit growth for edge devices
with AI will explode increasing over 110% CAGR over the next five
To address the computing opportunities at the Edge, Lattice’s sensAI
stack includes the following:
Modular Hardware Platforms – ECP5™ device-based Video Interface
Platform (VIP), including the award-winning Embedded
Vision Development Kit, and iCE40 UltraPlus™ device-based Mobile
Development Platform (MDP).
IP Cores – Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) accelerator and
Binarized Neural Network (BNN) accelerator.
Software Tools – Neural network compiler tool for
Caffe/TensorFlow to FPGA, Lattice Radiant™ design software, Lattice
Diamond® design software.
Reference Designs – Face detection, key phrase detection,
object counting, face tracking, and speed sign detection.
Design Services – Eco-system of design service partners
delivers custom solutions for broad market applications, including
smart home, smart city, and smart factory.
