Because of Lattice Semiconductor’s strategic leadership in the development of low-latency, lower-power, lower-size devices, this partnership targets to serve as a transformative catalyst to the startup and academic robotics ecosystems.
Based in the Boston area, MassRobotics is the first and largest independent nonprofit robotics startup escalator in the world whose mission is to grow and support robotics innovators and entrepreneurs.
Focused on enabling innovative engineers and developers to future-proof their designs for sectors such as industrial, automotive, communications, compute, and consumer applications at the edge, Lattice offers low-power FPGAs and application-specific solutions that are ideal to keep pace with constantly evolving technology.
Tom Ryden, executive director of MassRobotics, says: “Lattice Semiconductor is a great strategic partner to add to MassRobotics’ portfolio of companies accelerating the robotics industry.
“Their FPGAs and solution stacks make it easy for designers to incorporate. We’re looking forward to having their expertise in working with our innovative community and seeing all the collaborative outcomes that will no doubt result from it.”
Matt Dobrodziej, vice president of segment marketing and business development at Lattice Semiconductor, says: “We are excited to collaborate with MassRobotics to engage with the startup community, academia and leading research centers to accelerate their application development.
“Our award-winning, low-power FPGAs are designed to offer leadership power efficiency, real-time performance and reliability in the smallest footprints, and enable simplified in-field updates that help designers speed time-to-market and extend their system’s lifespan, making them ideally suited for industrial automation and robotics applications.”
Transformative components, like Lattice Semiconductor’s FPGAs and technologies from other MassRobotics partners, will comprise the yet-to-be-announced MassRobotics winter challenge, which will call on university students and teams to create visually awe-inspiring robotic creations that accomplish a useful function.
This exciting opportunity will allow the robotics community to highlight the possibilities, capability and use case examples of robotic innovation in action.
The challenge will be announced at the end of the year and kick off in January 2023 and finalists will showcase their robotic innovations at the Robotics Summit in Boston in May 2023.
