Lattice Semiconductor has introduces the new versions of MachXO3LF and MachXO3D FPGAs support extended temperature range for automotive and other ruggedized applications. Both the newly launched devices target control, bridging, and I/O expansion applications that must operate reliably in rugged environments like advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), infotainment, motor control, 5G communications infrastructure, industrial robots, and automation systems, defense systems, etc.

The MachXO3D FPGAs augment the popular system control capabilities of the Lattice MachXO FPGA architecture with enhanced security features, hardware Root-of-Trust (RoT), platform firmware resilience (PFR), and secure dual-boot support.

These new versions of MachXO are supported by Lattice’s design software suite, Lattice Diamond which is a GUI-based FPGA design and verification environment with design and implementation tools that are optimized for low-power Lattice FPGAs. The best part is that the latest version of Lattice Diamond (3.11.3) is available.


Key Features of MachXO3LF and MachXO3D FPGA

  • Support for an extended operating range -40°C to +125°C (junction temperature)
  • Robust control: It provides an instant-on control hub that powers the platform up and power and simplifies deployment by single 3.3V or 1.2V supply operation, highest I/O-to-logic ratio. It enables deterministic I/O operation by eliminating power-up glitches with default pull-down and maintaining signal integrity with program slew rate, drive strength, and hysteresis
  • On-chip flash memory: It secures bitstream and user data against malicious attacks via OTP mode and password protection. It has an immutable embedded security block to enable security compliant with NIST SP-800-193 Platform Firmware Resilience (PFR) guidelines for protecting, detecting, and recovering firmware from unauthorized access.
  • On-chip flash: It enables single-chip, instant-on, and dual-boot images for fail-safe programming and in-field updates.
