Lattice USB3 Video Bridge Development Kit

SuperSpeed USB3 A/V capture solution with multiple interfaces and 1080p60 HD streaming capability

The Lattice USB3 Video Bridge Development Kit is a production-ready High Definition video capture and conversion system based on the LatticeECP3TM FPGA family, designed by Mikroprojekt. Supplied with Lattice’s Video to USB3 Bridge reference design and USB 3.0 UVC video class firmware by Mikroprojekt, the kit works out of the box and can be easily demonstrated on USB 3.0 hosts running Windows, MacOS, or Linux. The board is recognized as a standard video capture device and will work with any commercial or open source software.

The solution, based on the LatticeECP3 supports high speed reception and packing of video and audio data into USB 3.0 UVC and UAC data frames without the use of external memory buffers. The Cypress EZ-USB FX3 USB 3.0 interface provides 5 GB streaming links to the USB host. The Analog Devices ADV7611 provides HDMI 1.4a capture capabilities (with optional HDCP decoding), and the Lattice Tri-Rate SDI PHY enables reception of professional audio and video signals over the LatticeECP3 SERDES interface. An expansion connector allows the connection of a Camera or sensor over either the MIPI CSI-2 interface, or SubLVDS differential lines, quickly transforming the board into a USB 3.0 High Definition camera suitable for industrial vision applications.

The kit offers manufacturers of professional video equipment a ready solution for a USB 3.0 video capture and conversion system enabling rapid evaluation and prototyping. Schematic and layout files are available for purchasers of the kit, enabling simple customization.
