Lattice Semiconductor Corporation has released its Lattice Radiant Software 1.1, a full-featured FPGA design suite with leading-edge design and implementation tools optimized for the company’s iCE40 UltraPlus family.
This new release adds an Intellectual Property (IP) packaging capability that enables external IP developers, including third-party IP providers and customers, to prepare and package encrypted IP in the Radiant Software IP format.
Radiant Software 1.1 utilizes a unified design database to implement data convergence and supports the Synopsys Design Constraint (SDC) industry standard to provide maximum interoperability, rapid design exploration, and an easy to use interface. Its IP packager tool reduces time to market by allowing developers to use Lattice and non-Lattice IPs in their designs.
Furthermore, the IP catalog has been extended to include a significant number of modules and parameterized module instantiation (PMI) optimized for iCE40 UltraPlus FPGAs to help designers increase their productivity.
In addition to supporting Windows, Radiant Software 1.1 adds support for the popular Ubuntu LTS 16.4 distribution of Linux.
Radiant Software 1.1 is now available for download from Lattice’s website and currently can be used with a free license.
