The MachXO3D FPGAs from Lattice Semiconductor are in stock at distributor Mouser Electronics.

These low-density PLDs (Programmable Logic Devices) feature enhanced security features and on-chip dual boot flash, and enhance secure control applications with hardware Root-of-Trust and dual boot capabilities.

The MachXO3D simplifies the implementation of comprehensive, flexible, and robust hardware security throughout the product lifecycle.

This customisable approach allows implementation with a wide range of system architectures.

Robust security features include detecting cryptographically and preventing a boot from malicious code. The on-device configuration flash enables dual boot, eliminating the need for external memory.

The hardened device configuration engine ensures only FPGA configurations from a trusted source can be installed.

The devices also provide a flexible, reliable, and secure configuration from on-chip Flash with the encryption and authentication options.

Applications for the MachXO3D FPGAs include Secure Boot and Root of Trust, consumer electronics, compute and storage, wireless communications, industrial control systems, and automotive system.
