In this paper, we prove the existence of pullback attractor, pullback exponential attractor and uniform attractor for second order non-autonomous lattice system with dispersive term and time-dependent forces. Then we prove the existence of uniform exponential attractor for the system driven by quasi-periodic external forces.
