MSC and eVision Systems will be hosting Lattice FPGA workshops next month. The one-day events will focus on FPGA design with VHDL using MachXO2 devices from Lattice Semiconductor. The workshops are held in German language with English slides. The workshop costs 129€ per person plus VAT. The training includes a MachXO2 Breakout Board and Lattice SW starter kit.
Lattice Semiconductor introduced the Control Development Kit for the MachXO2 family of ultra-low density FPGA devices. The Control Development Kit simplifies prototyping of systems and demonstrates its use in a wide range of system control applications. The MachXO2 Control Development Kit is available now for $189. All MachXO2 FPGAs are fully production qualified and have been shipping since 2011.
Lattice Semiconductor introduced a serial sub-LVDS bridge reference design for the Sony IMX136 and IMX104 image sensors. Lattice’s image sensor bridge design helps engineers quickly introduce cameras based on the Sony IMX136 and IMX104. The image sensor bridge design is available now for download, and the MachXO2-1200 (featured in the reference design) is in full production.
Lattice Semiconductor and Leopard Imaging introduced a dual camera module kit. The dual HD IP camera solution enables the TI DaVinci TMS320DM368 video processor to interface to two 720p image sensors. This kit is ideal for engineers designing black box car drive recorders or other applications that require two cameras. For black box car drive recorder applications, one camera can be pointed out the front of the vehicle, while the other can be directed toward the driver. The dual camera module kit is available now for $399 from Leopard Imaging.
Lattice Semiconductor is offering a series of free @MachXO2 Speed seminars. The Lattice events include hands-on technical training and live hardware demonstrations that focus on the MachXO2 PLD features that speed the design process and reduce time-to-market. The seminar’s hands-on hardware demonstrations utilize the versatile, battery-powered MachXO2 Pico Development Kit, which is discounted to $29 for the remainder of 2012.
Lattice Semiconductor released four new reference designs for their low cost, low power MachXO2 family of programmable logic devices (PLDs). Lattice’s entire portfolio of reference designs optimized for the MachXO2 family can be downloaded at no cost from the Lattice website. Five new demonstration designs and three updated application notes focused on the embedded, Flash memory-based EFB are also now available.
Lattice Semiconductor’s MachXO2 family of programmable logic devices (PLD) is available in a new 32 QFN (Quad Flatpack No-leads) package. Engineering samples of the MachXO2-256 in the 32 QFN package are available now. Production-qualified versions will be available in the third quarter of this year. MachXO2 PLDs with 256 LUTs are priced at $0.55 in volumes of 250K units. The programmable devices are supported in Lattice Diamond design software version 1.4.2.
Lattice Semiconductor introduced the Sony IMX136 image sensor bridge. The new image sensor bridge design utilizes the low power, low cost Lattice MachXO2 PLD (programmable logic device) to interface to the Sony IMX136 image sensor. The Sony IMX136 image sensor bridge design helps engineers to quickly introduce cameras based on the Sony IMX136. The image sensor bridge design is available now for download, and the MachXO2-1200 PLD is in full production.
Lattice Semiconductor and Aptina will showcase a low cost, dual image sensor design at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 10-13, 2012. The dual image sensor design helps ISP vendors to quickly offer multiple camera solutions for the consumer market. Lattice’s private hospitality meeting suite will be held in the Las Vegas Hilton, North Hall, 28th Floor, Suite 127.
Lattice Semiconductor will host a series of seminars on their MachXO2 and LatticeECP3 devices. The 2011 Programmable Logic Seminars feature advanced programmable logic concepts, basic design principles and real-world application examples. The seminars will also demonstrate MachXO2- and LatticeECP3-based evaluation kits. Attendees will receive a copy of the seminar materials and Lattice Diamond design software. The free events will take place in over 50 cities in Asia, Europe and North America.
