LatticeXP2 Brevia Development Kit

Note: This product is no longer available for purchase - it has been replaced by the new LatticeXP2 Brevia2 Development Kit. The The following information is provided for reference only.

The LatticeXP2 Brevia 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, a small form-factor evaluation board, and a parallel programming cable. The evaluation board features a LFXP2-5E-6TN144C FPGA device, 2 Mbit SPI Flash, 1 Mbit SRAM memory, expansion headers, several LEDs, and user switches.

Using the preloaded Brevia 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 Brevia Development Kit empowers designers to quickly build systems using readymade-blocks and implement them in less than an hour. The board also features parallel channels for JTAG programming and debugging from a host PC. The board can be controlled by a menu driven interface via terminal programs running on a host PC.

The Brevia Development Kit comes with a Lattice parallel port ispDOWNLOAD cable. If your PC does not have a parallel port connection (many new laptop PCs do not), you must purchase a Lattice USB ispDOWNLOAD cable, HW-USBN-2A. Please note that Lattice programming software does not operate with a 3rd party USB to parallel port adapter. Instead the USB ispDOWNLOAD Cable,HW-USBN-2A, should be used.
