It now supports ModelSim and SystemVerilog for wide FPGA-based applications including industrial/automotive, communications and compute
Key features of Diamond 3.12 include:
- Simulation tool – Mentor Graphics’ ModelSim is an OEM simulation tool that seamlessly integrates with the Diamond software tool flow. ModelSim adds support for Linux-based FPGA development and improves overall simulation performance for faster design verification.
- Expanded device support – Diamond 3.12 adds full programming and on-chip debug support for the Lattice Mach-NX FPGA for secure system control applications.
In addition to the Mach-NX family, Lattice Diamond also supports the Lattice CrossLinkPlus FPGAs for MIPI D-PHY-based embedded vision systems and Lattice MachXO3D FPGAs for system security.
“The new version of Diamond also supports SystemVerilog hardware description and verification language throughout the entire design flow to increase functionality, design flexibility, and design analysis for developers,” said Roger Do, Senior Product Line Manager, Software, Lattice Semiconductor. “This efficient coding method streamlines the design process and accelerates time-to-market for Lattice low power FPGA-based products.”
The latest version of the popular FPGA design and verification software environment is now available from Lattice Semiconductor.
