Downloadable software for logic design in small FPGAs offered by Lattice Semiconductor

Posted by John Keller

HILLSBORO, Ore., 16 June 2013. Lattice Semiconductor Hillsboro, Ore., is introducing Lattice Diamond v2.2 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) logic design software, as well as and iCEcube2 (v2013-03) design software for the Lattice iCE40 family of FPGAs.

These software releases also will provide access to additional Lattice products. Moreover, iCE40 FPGA designers will have a choice of synthesis tools, company officials say.

With support from Lattice Diamond v2.2 design software, the MachXO2 4000 FPGA is available in the compact 184-ball csBGA package, which provides as many as 150 I/O in an 8-by- 8-millimeter footprint.

The low-power, instant-on, non-volatile device, with 4,320 LUTs of programmable logic, is for compact, low-power image processing, video, and display applications that require high bandwidth and fast data transfers.

iCEcube2 (v2013-03) software provides access to the iCE40 LP8K FPGA in a 4-by-4-millimeter, 81-ball ucBGA package with a 0.4-millimeter pitch. Delivering 7,680 LUTs, the iCE40 LP8K FPGA enables designers to build co-processors to accelerate data processing in space-constrained portable industrial, scientific, and medical applications.

The Lattice iCEcube2 (v2013-03) environment supports the Lattice Synthesis Engine (LSE) as well as the Synopsys Synplify Pro software.

Lattice Diamond v2.2 software can be downloaded from the Lattice website at The iCEcube2 (v2013-03) software can be downloaded at
