Lattice iCE40 FPGAs Used by Citizen to Enable the World’s Thinnest, Fastest Satellite-Synchronizing Watch

Real-time processing capabilities in world’s smallest FPGA critical to delivering precise time keeping in Citizen’s newest Eco-Drive Satellite Wave Watches

HILLSBORO, Ore. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 2, 2014 — Lattice Semiconductor Corporation’s (NASDAQ: LSCC) iCE40™ FPGAs are enabling Citizen Watch to bring to market its Eco-Drive Satellite Wave F100 wristwatch, an innovative fusion of technology and beauty that receives and processes satellite signals in real-time to display the correct time anywhere in the world’s 40 time zones.

“The iCE40 FPGA was a prerequisite for us to complete our new system design,” said the head of the watch department’s system development section at Citizen Watch Ltd. “Lattice’s solution provided the smallest form factor for processing data received from GPS satellites and computing precise time, faster than any processor for running our custom algorithms and without the need to develop an ASIC.”

The iCE40 FPGA rapidly picks up the precise-time information from the input data of the GPS satellite signal receiver and generates the control signals to adjust the watch to the correct time. To learn more about the world’s smallest FPGAs, please visit www.latticesemi.com/iCE40.
