The ispMACH 4000ZE Pico Development Kit is a battery-powered, low-cost platform to accelerate the evaluation of ispMACH 4000ZE CPLDs. The kit features the ispMACH 4256ZE-MN144 device, Power Manager II ispPAC-POWR6AT6 device, a high-side current sense circuit, a 7-segment LCD display, and an expansion header landing for I2C, JTAG, and GPIO interfacing.
Using the preloaded ispMACH 4000ZE Pico Power demo design provided with the development kit, you can now test within minutes an I2C master and LCD controller interfaces in addition to the embedded ispMACH 4000ZE OSCTIMER block. You can then build your own designs using the free downloadable ispMACH 4000ZE reference design source code, implementing these features in less than an hour. The board also features USB channels for JTAG programming and I2C interfacing from a host PC. A pin header landing provides access to both PIO banks of the ispMACH 4000ZE CPLD and the on-board I2C bus. The board can be controlled with a I2C utility program (PicoView) running on a host PC.
