MachXO: Optimized Programmable Devices for Bus Interfaces, Bridges and Control
Bus bridging, interfacing and control are common functions in many electronic systems. The use of these functions spans virtually every end market segment, including automotive, consumer, communications, computing, industrial and military. In many cases, designers turn to programmable logic devices, either low-capacity FPGAs or high-capacity CPLDs, to implement these functions. However, neither class of programmable logic device has offered an optimal solution that fully addresses the requirements for devices implementing these functions. This white paper introduces Lattice Semiconductor's MachXO, optimized programmable devices for bus interfaces, bridges and control.
