Tokyo, June 13, 2006

Fujitsu Limited and Lattice Semiconductor Corporation today announced that they have signed a distribution agreement in which Fujitsu Devices Inc. will be added as an authorized distributor of Lattice's FPGA/PLD products(1) in Japan.

Fujitsu has been manufacturing Lattice FPGA products under contract since March 2004. Under the new distribution agreement, Fujitsu and Lattice will further strengthen their partnership to include both manufacturing and sales.

The agreement encompasses all Lattice products, including FPGAs manufactured using 90nm CMOS technology at the 300mm wafer line at Fujitsu's Mie fab, as well as all other existing products. In addition to incorporating these Lattice products into Fujitsu products, Fujitsu will also promote the sale of Lattice products to specific customers through Fujitsu Devices Inc.. Fujitsu plans to expand its sales activities to a wide spectrum of customers over time.

Makoto Nonaka, Executive Vice President of the Electronic Device Business Unit of Fujitsu Limited said, "We are excited to provide Lattice's excellent FPGAs to our customers. We will take maximum advantage of the synergy between our existing products and the new product lines provided by Lattice, and offer superior solutions to our customers. This distribution agreement enables us to establish a more strategic relationship between our two companies."

President of Fujitsu Devices Inc., Kunihiko Wada, stated, "With the addition of Lattice's superior FPGAs to our range of products, we are now able to offer customers a broader and more robust product line. We intend to enthusiastically promote sales of Lattice FPGAs while leveraging our strengths in ASICs, MCU design capabilities and IP development."

Steve Donovan, Lattice Corporate Vice President of Sales, said, "It is important for Lattice to gain additional FPGA market share in Japan. To do that, it was necessary to strengthen our sales network in order to make more customers aware of our FPGA products. With powerful sales and technical support from Fujitsu, a wider audience now will have the opportunity to learn about Lattice products."
