I want to do some testing on some of the low power CPLDs and I can't find a decent test board for the Lattice ispMACH4000 parts or the XPLA3 parts. The XPLA3 parts are hard to find on a good eval board because they are a bit long in the tooth and even though they are a good choice when you want to use a single supply (or need 5 volt tolerance) support for them is starting to wane. The only good eval board for the XPLA3 parts that I can find is from India.
The MACH4000 parts are a whole different matter. Lattice has an eval board that uses the LC4032ZC or the LC4064ZC chip, but nothing larger. It also has terrible documentation. Further I believe I am hearing that they never intended it to be an eval board, but rather a marketing tool to compare their part to an X brand part. So it was pushed into eval service with little documentation and support. With no third party eval board that I can find and the Lattice board with a $500 price tag and no useful documentation, it looks like I will have to go with the XC2C128 part just by default!
Anyone know of eval boards for the ispMACH4000 parts?
