Synopsys and Lattice Semiconductor have agreed to a multi-year extension to their agreement. Under the terms of the OEM agreement, Lattice Semiconductor will provide specific versions of Synopsys’ Synplify Pro and Synplify software as part of its programmable logic design environments (including the Lattice Diamond FPGA design platform). The logic synthesis partnership will benefit designers targeting Lattice CPLD and FPGA products.
The Synopsys Synplify and Synplify Pro synthesis tools have been optimized to take full advantage of the architectural features of Lattice’s programmable logic devices. The Synplify software for Lattice FPGAs provides designers with a timing-driven synthesis solution that meets timing requirements while simultaneously minimizing the amount of FPGA resources needed to implement the logic. This results in lower overall cost. The Synplify Pro software for Lattice offers broad language support, including SystemVerilog and VHDL 2008, which ensures that the newest and most productive HDL constructs are available to Lattice FPGA designers.
Synplify and Synplify Pro for Lattice are available now and can be obtained directly from Lattice Semiconductor through the Lattice Diamond and ispLEVER design software families. In addition to Synplify and Synplify Pro, these products include a complete set of tools for design tasks such as project management, IP integration, design planning, place and route and in-system logic analysis.
