The MachXO3L Starter Kit is a basic breakout board to allow simple evaluation and development of MachXO3L based designs. It has the LCMXO3L-6900C-5BG256C device on it. It is significantly smaller in size and lower cost than the MachXO3L DSI (LCXO3L-DSI-EVN) or SMA (LCXO3L-SMA-EVN) breakout boards while offering common basic functionalities – a good way to start the evaluation of MachXO3L. A SPI Flash is available on this Starter Kit board for evaluating external boot or dual-boot functional capabilities. The MachXO3L DSI breakout board is recommended for MIPI DSI and CSI2 I/O evaluation and the MachXO3L SMA breakout board is recommended for high-speed differential I/O evaluation.
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 MachXO3L 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 MachXO3L device to review your own custom design.
