Related Applications

Multi-Standard Interface to PCIe Bridging Platform – Board enables designers to quickly and efficiently develop designs to bridge a multitude of industry interface I/O standards to PCIe. Several possible options include (but not limited to) MIPI-to-PCIe, SGMII-to-PCIe, RGMII-to-PCIe, USB3-to-PCIe, control functions(GPIO/I2C/MDIO)-to-PCIe and more. Board supports both End point as well as root port PCIe configuration.

Embedded Development Platform – Board supports key components for embedded development like DDR3, Ethernet, UART, ADC and SPI Flash.

Rapid prototyping and proof-of-concept demos – Assists engineers with rapid prototyping and testing of their CrossLink-NX designs. Several demos and reference designs targeting this board are available for download from the Lattice Solutions page, to speed-up development of PCI Express, SGMII, DDR3, soft error correction (SEC) and D-PHY camera and display interface functions.
