Instant-on FPGA now includes on-chip flash memory
Expanding the MachXO3 FPGA family, Lattice Semiconductor has announced that the MachXO3LF are provided with on-chip Flash for configuration and usage. They utilise the same advanced package technology as the MachXO3L family to provide a small-footprint, the highest I/O density on the market and easy migration without changing PCB design.
With the MachXO3LF devices, customers can get the benefit of FPGA design code changes during the engineering and development phase or during in-field design upgrades and then easily migrate to lower cost MachXO3L devices when the design is finalised or an upgrade becomes unnecessary. The MachXO3LF devices are immediately supported by Lattice Diamond design software version 3.4.1 (and follow-on versions).
Jim Tavacoli, Senior Director of Marketing, Lattice Semiconductor, comments: “The MachXO3 family has been tremendously received by both industry observers and, more importantly, the customers who use it to differentiate their products. The MachXO3LF device continues the evolution of the product line by providing more options for customers.”
