ICE40

Overview

iCE40 FPGAs offer the industry’s most affordable ultra low density FPGA. Using a 40nm process with unique non-volatile configuration memory, The iCE40 family is optimized for cost sensitive applications including smartphones, digital cameras, tablets and any other applications requiring cost sensitive glue logic and bridging. With standby currents as low as 10μA, iCE40 FPGAs enable designers of power constrained devices to quickly and easily bring new features and capabilities to market. Available in the world’s smallest plastic 0.4mm pitch BGA packages, the iCE40 family offers significant savings in board space.

Ultra-low power

Maximum battery life is critical for mobile handheld applications. Lattice iCE40 FPGAs have been optimized to achieve low power at any speed.

Advanced Small Form Factors

iCE40 FPGAs use the most advanced packaging technology available to meet the aggressive requirements of mobile, portable and extremely space-constrained devices. iCE40 FPGAs are available in packages as small as 2.5 x 2.5mm, allowing designers to quickly integrate more functionality into a significantly smaller space.
