LatticeECP3 Serial Protocol Evaluation Board

The LatticeECP3 Serial Protocol Evaluation Board allows designers to investigate and experiment with the features of the LatticeECP3 high-speed SERDES transceivers. It is available for full and detailed characterization of the high speed I/O channels and includes interfaces for some of the latest protocol interconnections.

Features

  • PCI Express x4 edge connector interfaces
    • Allow demonstration of PCI Express (x4) interfaces
    • This board is larger than the standard PCIe form-factor, but will demonstrate PCIe x4 functionality with an open-frame motherboard
  • Allow control of SERDES PCS registers using the Serial Client Interface (ORCAstra)
  • Serial ATA interfaces for host and target configurations
  • RJ45 interface to 10/100/1000 Ethernet
  • On-board Boot Flash.
    • 64M Serial SPI Flash
    • Parallel Flash via MachXO™ Crossover PLD programming bridge
  • Switches, LEDs, displays for demo purposes
  • Several debug and analysis connections
  • Input connection for lab-power supply
  • Power connections and power sources
  • ispVM™ programming support
  • On-board and external reference clock sources
