The most capable non-volatile solution optimized for a wide range of power, size and cost efficient applications
HILLSBORO, OR September 22, 2014 - Lattice Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: LSCC), the leader in low power, small form factor, customizable solutions, today announced volume production of the industry leading MachXO3L in three tiny WLCSP packages as small as 2.5 x 2.5 mm. Lattice also announced two new low-cost breakout boards that enable designers to evaluate MachXO3L’s LED, SPI, I2C, MIPI CSI2, DSI, differential I/O and other capabilities. These releases solidify MachXO3L’s lead in enabling engineers to quickly solve complex design problems in applications as diverse as industrial infrastructure and smart connected devices.
MachXO3L’s unique advantages include:
Lowest cost per I/O enabled by Wafer-Level Chip-Scale and advanced Chip Scale BGA technology with package sizes as small as 2.5mm x 2.5mm and having up to 472 I/O in an industry leading 21mm x 21mm package. These enable engineers to fit big capability in tiny spaces while maintaining cost competitiveness.
Low power leadership that includes an onboard regulator to simplify system design, eliminate thermal constraints and help engineers realize always-on devices.
Instant-on capability with boot-up time of less than 5ms coupled with background system upgrade capability, dual boot and a single supply makes MachXO3L ideal for controlling power-up and system initialization.
Hardened IP blocks including I2C, SPI, MIPI DPHY, embedded memory, DSP, and oscillator, all in an instant-on programmable fabric. These enable engineers to design more quickly, improve reliability, and reduce cost.
“Lattice is clearly ahead of its competition with a rich 25 year legacy of instant-on products,” said Keith Bladen, Corporate Vice-President, Marketing. “Our non-volatile FPGA portfolio leads the industry with advanced 40 nm technology, power as low as 19 A, and the industry’s widest density range with 256 – 40K LUT devices in production today.”
MachXO3 FPGAs are supported today by Lattice Diamond® software, soft IP, and reference designs. Production devices and evaluation boards are available now from Lattice and its distributors. To learn more, please visit www.latticesemi.com/MachXO3.
