HILLSBORO, USA: Lattice Semiconductor Corp. has announced the immediate availability of a new versatile LatticeXP2 Brevia Development Kit and 28 new silicon-proven reference designs, which are ideal for developing high volume, cost sensitive, high density applications.
The low cost Brevia Development Kit is currently available for a promotional price of only $29. The instant-on, easy to use LatticeXP2 FPGA family offers users the benefits of increased system integration by providing embedded memory, built-in PLLs, high performance LVDS I/O and remote field upgrade (TransFR™ technology), all in a single device.
Designed for a broad range of high density applications that include general purpose I/O expansion, video image signal processing, interface bridging and control functions, the popular LatticeXP2 FPGA family is used in a variety of end markets such as security and surveillance, consumer, displays, automotive, communications, computing, and industrial.
“LatticeXP2 FPGAs are a perfect platform for our broad family of Flash memory controllers, as they offer the best mix of high-speed I/O, logic capacity, embedded memory, and programmability in a very small form-factor package,” said Santosh Kumar, principal systems architect at SiliconApps, a silicon applications provider for embedded systems.
“The new reference designs and the low cost development kit provide us with a complete platform for building high-speed embedded controllers, signal-processing, and video-processing systems.”
"The LatticeXP2 device is the only single-chip, non-volatile SRAM-based FPGA available in a tiny 8mm x 8mm BGA package in the market,” said Shakeel Peera, Lattice's Director of Strategic Marketing for High Density Solutions. “The value priced XP2 Brevia Development Kit, along with 28 new silicon-proven reference designs, will enable designers to reduce design cost and complexity while shrinking the time to market window to build secure, instant-on systems.”
