Lattice Semiconductor Corp. has released a new version of its ispLEVER programmable logic tool suite with support for new device families.

New ispLEVER enhancements in v4.1 provide users with a simple upgrade path to designing with the new Lattice FPGA families, while retaining familiar ispLEVER interface, the company said.

The new software release also improves the design libraries and fitting engines for all Lattice programmable logic families, and adds support for the new ispXPGA-E FPGAs and ispGDX2-E programmable crosspoint switches. The ispLEVER 4.1 release also includes new versions of third party synthesis and simulation tools from Synplicity and Mentor Graphics and, for the first time, supports the Linux OS.

In anticipation of the growing demand for Linux-based design solutions, ispLEVER 4.1 will be available on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3 OS.

The ispLEVER 4.1 design tools also include DSP blocks for use in the MATLAB/Simulink DSP design environment, available separately from Mathworks. These DSP blocks can be used to build DSP solutions, within the MATLAB/Simulink environment that can then be exported in HDL optimized for the LatticeECP-DSP FPGA architecture, the company said.

The ispLEVER 4.1lList prices begin at $995. All registered users of Lattice software with a valid maintenance agreement will receive the 4.1 upgrade at no charge within the next 30 days.
