Lattice Semiconductor announced the newest member of its MachXO3 FPGA family − MachXO3LF device − which provides essential bridging and I/O expansion functions to meet the increasing connectivity requirements of communications, computing, consumer and industrial markets.
MachXO3LF devices come with on-chip Flash for configuration and usage. They utilize the same advanced package technology as the MachXO3L family, thus providing a small-footprint and the highest I/O density of any device on the market. The pin-out compatibility allows customers to easily migrate between MachXO3L and MachXO3LF devices without changing printed circuit board 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 finalized or an upgrade becomes unnecessary.
