The technical collaboration leverages the combined hardware and software expertise of all three companies to enable advanced user presence detection and privacy features in Lenovo’s 2-in-1 laptop. The laptop and these new capabilities are powered by Lattice low power FPGAs built on the award-winning Lattice Nexus™ platform.
