Evaluation board offers 60% reduction in power consumption

Provider of customisable smart connectivity solutions, Lattice Semiconductor, has announced the expansion of its 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 1.2V for thermally-challenged environments, provide expanded FPGA logic resources for motor control and board management functions, and offer a higher I/O count optimised 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 (1.2V core voltage) options with 60% reduced power consumption over MachXO3-9400C (3.3V 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 suitable 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.
