DEV KIT WEEKLY: Lattice Semiconductor CrossLink-NX Evaluation Board

October 16, 2020 Brandon Lewis

There’s a ton going on in the world of FPGAs these days, and we didn’t want to miss out on the fun. So we tapped our friends at Lattice, who sent us the CrossLink-NX evaluation board, a kit centered around the company’s CrossLink-NX embedded vision and processing FPGAs that are built on top of the Lattice Nexus Platform.

Nexus is a 28 nm FD-SOI process technology with circuits that consume 75 percent less power and provide a soft error rate that is up to 100x less than bulk process alternatives. The Nexus architecture also includes large embedded RAM blocks that are accessed frequently in applications like AI inferencing, and, of course, plenty of high-speed interfaces.

If you’re interested in getting your hands on a CrossLink-NX evaluation board, it will set you back $129 from distributors like Mouser. Or, if you win this week’s raffle, it will set you back a grand total of $0. We’ll even pay the shipping.
