 Low-power FPGAs support automotive temperature range
Lattice Semiconductor has developed new versions of its MachXO3LF FPGAs for flexible deployment of robust automotive control applications and MachXO3D FPGAs for system security. Both products support the automotive temperature range up to 125°C.

MachXO3D FPGAs augment the system control capabilities of the Lattice MachXO FPGA architecture with additional security features, including hardware Root-of-Trust (RoT), platform firmware resilience (PFR), and secure dual-boot support. The MachXO3D and MachXO3LF devices target control, bridging, and I/O expansion applications that must operate reliably in rugged environments, including advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), infotainment, motor control, 5G communications infrastructure, industrial robots and automation systems, and defense systems.

Technological development projects like Electric vehicles (EVs), autonomous driving, ADAS, and infotainment are increasing OEMs’ reliance on electronic components in automotive systems. Consultancy company Deloitte projected that by 2030, 45 percent of the cost of a new car will come from electronic systems. As more sensors and electric motors are incorporated into cars, systems become exposed to risk of malicious hacks. OEMs must be able to immediately detect vulnerabilities and combat cyberattacks, and they need electronic systems capable of reliable and secure operation in rugged environments. The MachXO3D family of FPGAs builds on the MachXO3LF family of devices by adding a hardware security engine to help protect, detect, and recover the device from unauthorized attempts to access its firmware.

MachXO3LF and MachXO3D FPGAs are supported by the vendor’s integrated design software suite, Lattice Diamond, a GUI-based FPGA design and verification environment with implementation tools optimized for low-power Lattice FPGAs. The latest version of Lattice Diamond, version 3.11.3, is also now available.
