Recent Business Highlights
- Epson Extends Relationship with Lattice to 60 GHz Wireless Technology: Epson’s flagship PowerLite Home Cinema 5040UBe3LCD Projector, is an industry’ first with 4K support for the consumer and enterprise markets. Lattice’s SiBEAM 60 GHz wireless technology delivers a robust, cable-like experience that is free from Wi-Fi interference to enable a seamless, high quality video connectivity solution, with an interface compatible with the HDMI® standard for in-room applications. This is the third generation of Epson’s projectors to incorporate Lattice’s technology, underscoring the companies long-term partnership.
- Expands Automotive Product Portfolio with Addition of ECP5™ and CrossLink™ Programmable Devices: Lattice expanded its automotive product portfolio with ECP5™ and CrossLink™ programmable devices tailored specifically for interface bridging applications. Reinforcing Lattice’s commitment to the automotive market, the two products deliver optimized connectivity solutions for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and infotainment applications, while also bridging the gap between emerging image sensor and video display interfaces with legacy automotive interfaces. Lattice's low power, small form factor, are ideal for multi-sensor aggregation and bridging in ADAS applications and enable the use of mobile interfaces in auto subsystems to reduce overall system cost, power and size.

Forward-Looking Statements Notice:
The foregoing paragraphs contain forward-looking statements that involve estimates, assumptions, risks and uncertainties. Any statements about our expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance are not historical facts and may be forward-looking. Such forward-looking statements include statements relating to: our expectation that our growth remains on track as we execute on our second half ramp, our R&D roadmap and the strategic initiatives that will help ensure our longer-term success. Other forward-looking statements may be indicated by words such as “will,” “could,” “should,” “would,” “may,” “expect,” “plan,” “project,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “forecast,” “future,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “propose,” “potential,” “continue” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. Lattice believes the factors identified below could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements.
Estimates of future revenue are inherently uncertain due to, among other things, the high percentage of quarterly “turns” business. In addition, revenue is affected by such factors as global economic conditions, which may affect customer demand, pricing pressures, competitive actions, the demand for our Mature, Mainstream and New products, and in particular our iCE40™ and MachXO3L™ devices, the ability to supply products to customers in a timely manner, changes in our distribution relationships, or the volatility of our consumer business. Actual gross margin percentage and operating expenses could vary from the estimates on the basis of, among other things, changes in revenue levels, changes in product pricing and mix, changes in wafer, assembly, test and other costs, including commodity costs, variations in manufacturing yields, the failure to sustain operational improvements, the actual amount of compensation charges due to stock price changes. Any unanticipated declines in revenue or gross margin, any unanticipated increases in our operating expenses or unanticipated charges could adversely affect our profitability.
In addition to the foregoing, other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release include global economic uncertainty, overall semiconductor market conditions, market acceptance and demand for our new products, the Company's dependencies on its silicon wafer suppliers, the impact of competitive products and pricing, technological and product development risks, the failure to achieve the anticipated benefits and synergies of the Silicon Image transaction. In addition, actual results are subject to other risks and uncertainties that relate more broadly to our overall business, including those risks more fully described in Lattice’s filings with the SEC including its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 2, 2016, and Lattice’s quarterly reports filed on Form 10-Q.
You should not unduly rely on forward-looking statements because actual results could differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. In addition, any forward-looking statement applies only as of the date on which it is made. The Company does not intend to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
