“Lattice Semiconductor is a vendor of field-programmable gate array (FPGA) chips used in personal computers, 5G infrastructure, routers and switches, and servers, to name a few. The company now has a new board and management team—the current CEO joined from leading microprocessor provider Advanced Micro Devices in late 2018—which have embarked on a product transformation journey. The company has refreshed its FPGA products in the small/low power segment of the market—making it more focused on addressing high return-on-investment use cases centered around power-efficient applications—carving itself a niche behind the two market leaders focused on high-end, Xilinx and Intel Corporation. In addition to providing FPGA chips to data centers and new 5G infrastructure— particularly compelling opportunities given these end markets are and will likely continue benefiting from strong secular tailwinds—we believe the company is well-positioned to tap into low-power/reprogrammable chips as well as industrial and automotive end markets.”

Shares declined during the first quarter as part of the broader market rotation from high-valuation software stocks coupled with continued pandemic-related pressure on Everbridge’s organic growth rates. We retain conviction given the company’s significant lead over its competition and the early stage of CEM adoption, with just 2% of Everbridge’s 5,000-plus population alert customers having adopted CEM thus far.”
