The MachXO2 Control Development Kit provides a full featured development platform to prototype system control designs using MachXO2 FPGAs. The kit features the MachXO2-4000HC device, a Power Manager II ispPAC-POWR1014A, 128Mbit LPDDR memory, 4Mbit SPI Flash and a microSD card socket.
Using the preloaded Control System-on-Chip (SoC) design you can test within minutes board control functions such as power supply sequencing, reset distribution, power supply monitoring and data logging using the Power Manager II POWR1014A and 8-bit LatticeMico8™ microcontroller. Other downloadable demonstration examples for the MachXO2 Control Development Kit include a Display Interface design. You can then build your own designs using the free downloadable reference design source code, implementing these features in less than an hour. Additional MachXO2 Reference Designs are available to help you build your own custom desgns.
The board features USB channels for JTAG programming and debugging from a host PC. A 16x2 header provides access to a variety of I/O banks of the MachXO2 device and the on-board SPI and I2C buses. The board can be controlled with a menu driven interface via terminal programs running on a host PC.
A previous version of the MachXO2 Control Development Kit featuring the MachXO2-1200HC is no longer available, and has been replaced by the MachXO2-4000HC version described on this page.
