Lattice ispMACH 4A CPLD Family

ispMACH 4A CPLD Family

The ispMACH 4A family from Lattice offers an exceptionally flexible architecture and delivers a superior Complex Programmable Logic Device (CPLD) solution of easy-to-use silicon products and software tools. The overall benefits for users are a guaranteed and predictable CPLD solution, faster time-to-market, greater flexibility and lower cost. The ispMACH 4A devices offer densities ranging from 32 to 512 macrocells with 100% utilization and 100% pin-out retention.

The ispMACH 4A families offer 5-V (M4A5- xxx) and 3.3-V (M4A3-xxx) operation. ispMACH 4A products are 5-V or 3.3-V in-system programmable through the JTAG (IEEE Std. 1149.1) interface. JTAG boundary scan testing also allows product testability on automated test equipment for device connectivity. All ispMACH 4A family members deliver First-Time-Fit and easy system integration with pin-out retention after any design change and refit. For both 3.3-V and 5-V operation, ispMACH 4A products can deliver guaranteed fixed timing as fast as 5.0 ns tPD and 182 MHz fCNT through the SpeedLocking feature when using up to 20 product terms per output.

ispMACH 4A


The fundamental architecture of ispMACH 4A devices (Figure 1) consists of multiple, optimized PAL blocks interconnected by a central switch matrix. The central switch matrix allows communication between PAL blocks and routes inputs to the PAL blocks. Together, the PAL blocks and central switch matrix allow the logic designer to create large designs in a single device instead of having to use multiple devices. The key to being able to make effective use of these devices lies in the interconnect schemes. In the ispMACH 4A architecture, the macrocells are flexibly coupled to the product terms through the logic allocator, and the I/O pins are flexibly coupled to the macrocells due to the output switch matrix. In addition, more input routing options are provided by the input switch matrix. These resources provide the flexibility needed to fit designs efficiently
