The LatticeXP2 Brevia2 Development Kit is an easy-to-use, low-cost platform for evaluating and designing with LatticeXP2 FPGAs. The kit offers free design tools, reference designs, and a small form-factor evaluation board. The evaluation board features a LFXP2-5E-6TN144C FPGA device, on-board USB for programming and power, 2 Mbit SPI Flash, 1 Mbit SRAM memory, expansion headers, several LEDs, and user switches.
Using the preloaded Brevia2 system-on-chip (Brevia SoC) design provided with the development kit, you can now test within minutes SPI, UART and SRAM interfaces in addition to the 8-bit LatticeMico8 microcontroller. You can then build your own designs using the free downloadable source code for 28 reference designs, available in both VHDL and Verilog HDL formats. The easy-to-use Brevia2 Development Kit empowers designers to quickly build systems using readymade-blocks and implement them in less than an hour. The board can be controlled by a menu driven interface via terminal programs running on a host PC.
The Brevia2 Development Kit comes with a USB mini cable to supply power as well as JTAG programming. It is also a replacement for the first-generation LatticeXP2 Brevia Development Kit which is no longer available.
