Mouser Electronics to Distribute Lattice Products

4/6/2005 - Lattice Semiconductor (NASDAQ: LSCC) and Mouser Electronics, Inc. announced they have signed a definitive agreement for Mouser to distribute Lattice products in North and South America. The partnership complements Lattice's current distribution agreements, and makes it possible for a broader base of customers in the Americas to access, evaluate and purchase Lattice products. In particular, customers who require the immediate availability of low-volume, off-the-shelf components will benefit from this agreement. Mouser's inventory will include the full line of Lattice FPGA, CPLD and SPLD devices, including the revolutionary new high-performance, low-cost, non-volatile LatticeXPTM family of FPGAs. The Lattice ispLEVER® 4.2 design tool suite also will be available. Customers can browse and purchase Lattice products online at, or through Mouser's quarterly print catalog.

"Our goal is to help make our customers more competitive," said Steve Donovan, corporate vice president of sales for Lattice. "That is why Lattice continues to design, develop and deliver innovative programmable logic devices to the market. Mouser will help us achieve our goal by making our products immediately and conveniently available to an expanded customer base in the Americas," Donovan concluded.

According to Glenn Smith, president of Mouser Electronics, the addition of Lattice Semiconductor to Mouser's line card "fits perfectly with our business model of continuously offering the most innovative products and latest technologies to our customers." Smith continued by stating that "we are a preferred distributor for design engineers because we have no minimum order size and are very willing to break packs to fulfill the smaller prototyping orders."
