Lattice Semiconductor Corp. has introduced the Platform Manager family -- its third-generation mixed-signal devices.
The Platform Manager product family consists of two devices -- the LPTM10-1247 and LPTM10-12107. The LPTM10-1247 device monitors 12 voltage rails and supports 47 digital I/Os, and the LPTM10-12107 device monitors up to 12 voltage rails and supports 107 digital I/Os.
The programmable devices will aim to simplify board management design significantly by integrating programmable analog and logic to support many common functions, such as power management, digital housekeeping and glue logic.By integrating these support functions, Platform Manager devices reduce the cost of these functions compared to traditional approaches, and improves system reliability. It provides a high degree of design flexibility that minimizes the risk of circuit board re-spins.
