Lattice Semiconductor rolled out Service Pack 1 for ispLEVER FPGA design tool suite, v8.1. The ispLEVER 8.1 Service Pack 1 tool suite for Windows and Linux is available now without charge. The ispLEVER FPGA design software is a complete set of tools for all design tasks (including project management, IP integration, design planning, place and route, and in-system logic analysis). Synopsys’ Synplify Pro advanced FPGA synthesis is included for all operating systems supported, and Aldec’s Active-HDL Lattice Edition simulator is included for Windows.
ispLEVER 8.1 Service Pack 1 Highlights
Updated Support for LatticeECP3 FPGA Devices
Service Pack 1 updates the device values to production characterized silicon for the entire LatticeECP3 family, including the ECP3-35EA and ECP3-17EA devices. With SP1, power calculation, static timing analysis, timing simulation and simultaneous switching noise calculation will report results that even more accurately reflect the behavior of the actual production device.
Support for Platform Manager Devices
In conjunction with the upcoming release of PAC-Designer 6.0 software, ispLEVER 8.1 Service Pack 1 supports the new programmable mixed signal Platform Manager devices. For new users, a free version of this design flow will be available with the Starter version of ispLEVER 8.1 SP1 software.
