MachXO3LF Starter Kit

Reference Design and Demo for Evaluation and Development

The MachXO3LF Starter Kit is a basic breakout board to allow simple evaluation and development of MachXO3LF based designs. It has the LCMXO3LF-6900C-5BG256C device on it. A SPI Flash is available on this Starter Kit board for evaluating external boot or dual-boot functional capabilities.

This Starter Kit board is a 3 x 3 inch form factor, and features a USB mini-B connector for power and programming, an LED array, and prototype area. It comes with a pre-loaded demonstration, a counter design that highlights use of the embedded MachXO3LF oscillator and programmable I/Os configured for LED drive. A USB cable is also included with the kit, and demos area available for download. By using the free Lattice design tools, you can program the MachXO3LF device to review your own custom design.

MachXO3LF Starter Kit Key Functions:

  • Evaluate CMOS I/Os
  • LED driving capability
  • Programming via JTAG or I2C
  • SPI flash for external boot or dual-boot operation

A basic LED demo is preprogrammed into each board, and available for download as a reference. The following software can be used to develop new designs:
