New Devices and Feature-Rich Evaluation Board Expedite Development of Control Applications in Server, Communications, and Industrial Markets


Lattice Semiconductor Corporation announced the expansion of its popular MachXO3™ control PLD family to address the evolving design requirements of the communications and industrial sectors. The new MachXO3-9400 package options offer reduced power consumption with a core voltage of 1.2 V for thermally-challenged environments, provide expanded FPGA logic resources for motor control and board management functions, and offer a higher I/O count optimized for server and storage applications. To support customers who are designing with MachXO3, Lattice is releasing a powerful, flexible evaluation board to support a variety of system architectures, including board management, embedded microcontroller I/O expansion and video protocol bridging functions.

 

“The release of additional low power options of our MachXO3-9400 devices will enable customers to bring additional intelligence to power-conscious applications at the edge,” said Joel Coplen, product marketing manager at Lattice Semiconductor. “Customers can begin developing a variety of solutions using our MachXO3-9400 evaluation board, including hardware management and expanding I/O or adding logic functions to embedded microcontrollers.”

 

Lattice’s new device options offer:

· MachXO3-9400E (1.2 V core voltage) options with 60% reduced power consumption over MachXO3-9400C (3.3 V core voltage) variants.

 

· Pin migration options from MachXO3-6900, expanding FPGA logic resources for factory automation and server board management.

 

· Up to 384 I/O – the highest I/O count yet in the MachXO3 family.

 

· Features key benefits of the MachXO3 family, such as internal configuration memory, flexible programmable I/Os and embedded memory.

 

 

The MachXO3-9400 evaluation board features the MachXO3-9400 control PLD and the Lattice Hardware Management Expander, the L-ASC10. The board also includes connectors for Raspberry Pi 3, Arduino Zero, and additional expansion boards. The board is ideal for designers who are looking to quickly and efficiently implement I/O expansion, co-processing, motor control and video bridging into their latest computing and industrial applications.
