FPGA software targets low power applications

By Nick Flaherty

Lattice Semiconductor has launched the latest versio nof its FPGA development software, targetting low power embedded applications. 

Lattice Radiant’s support for the iCE40 UltraPlus FPGAs greatly expands the device’s application across broad market segments including mobile, consumer, industrial, and automotive. The iCE40 UltraPlus devices are the world’s smallest FPGAs with enhanced memory and DSPs to enable
always on, distributed processing.

“Lattice is increasingly witnessing customers who are seeking to benefit from the ultra-low power, small form factor, and low cost features of iCE40 UltraPlus FPGAs,” said Choon-Hoe Yeoh, senior director, software marketing at Lattice Semiconductor. “Lattice Radiant software provides a range of enhancements for designing with iCE40 UltraPlus FPGAs in order to drive innovative designs in emerging embedded applications.”

The IP ecosystem with IEEE 1735 encryption provides core design support for the iCE40 UltraPlus device family for a broad range of applications including IoT sensor bridging, 8:1 microphone aggregation, and face detection.

Key features of the Lattice Radiant software include predictable design convergence with unified design database, design constraint flow and timing analysis and a new design constraint editor that simplifies both logical and physical design constraint editing. It also supports physical to logical design implementation cross-probing.
The Lattice Radiant software is now available for download free of charge.
