Lattice Semiconductor released the latest version of its software design tool for FPGAs, Lattice Radiant 2.1, which includes support for the company’s latest general-purpose Lattice Certus-NX FPGAs. This is the second family introduced recently using the Lattice Nexus FPGA development platform. The platform also offers native support for the SystemVerilog hardware description and verification language to increase functionality and design flexibility.
The latest version of Radiant supports SystemVerilog throughout the entire design flow, from the native synthesis tool through the schematic viewer, hierarchical viewer, configuration wizards, and debugging tool. This coding method simplifies on-chip debugging and other tasks to streamline the design process, with features like a redesigned drag-and-drop GUI, with support for an I/O planner to enforce correct pin placement for each I/O signal or bus.
In addition to the Certus-NX family, Lattice Radiant also supports the CrossLink-NX FPGAs for embedded and smart visions applications. The platform also supports the ultra-low power, small form factor Lattice iCE40 UltraPlus FPGAs.
